It's been really busy lately - trying to get my new pcmcia ethernet adapter up and going, but I get 98% packet loss...not healthy at all. Anyone got experience with Addtron 10/100 PCMCIA adapaters? It's 32-bit....:-)

X-Virge (julian@advogato) doesn't want to hold a talk about GNOME/GTK in front of 300-400 people at The Gathering 1900, so I had to remove him from the list. Coward...;-)

The Pluto-400 administration system is going along now. We plan to have all the planning in place within friday when we'll have a meeting with all the developers (yes, IRL actually). The rest of the weekend will be used for programming.

It seems that the Linux Crew at The Gathering 1900 (which I command) is planning to make a new WINS-daemon which can handle 4500 computers (which the ones that exist now don't). We need one for TG.

Well, it seems that I finally got the computers Aganemnon and Pluto operational again. Note that Aganemnons power-switch is faulty, so I haveto press a **** keyboard when I want it to turn on. And of course, each time I accidentally come near the keyboard, it starts up too. Heaven.

Straightened out another argument on #linux.no today about linux software under non-gpl licenses.

Finally got Avatar (my palm v) into it's cradle. It's been without charging for about a week now, and it's low on electricity. Very low.

The floor is now again viewable - it's not covered by cebut stuff, computer parts, cables, switches, etc anymore. OK then....the floor is visible somewhere :-)

Saw Star Trek Insurrection again. DVD version this time. Oh yes...wrote an article for Hardware Norge.

Updated Norsk Bokmål translations for GnomeToaster (currently working on Norwegian Nynorsk translation). Also finishing Norsk Bokmål translation of Webalizer.

Got a very positive responce from Turbolinux today. They are joining NLC at The Gathering by sending lots of CDs and other stuff....always nice :-)

We're setting up the #linux.no row at TG00 - of course it will be situated right at the Linux Support / NLC stand so that we can stretch a large linux banner over the pathway.

The Pluto-400 software management project is going ok, it seems that there are some problems in the C part. And we haven't figured out if we are to use an SQL backend or not.

One of LiLo's deliverers had a special on 19" and 17" monitors today....they were CHEAP!!!!! 2900NOK for a 19"... but of course, I'd rather have the 50" Scandinavia Online is giving away ;-)

My first diary post :-)

School as usual today. Unfortunately, it was time for Windows NT network (3 hours). It seems that it started snowing today :-(...it's gonna be a cold walk to "Messehallen" for gymnastics.

Finished downloading Helix to school. Unfortunately, the cd-burner we regularly use here isn't working anymore - it'll be back from repairs in a couple of days...time to dig up those zip-disks again!

Also got my "russekort"...of course they managed to write ('s instead of ['s so the code isn't executable. The picture of DustPuppy worked out OK though.

Sending off the t-shirt designs for the Linux Crew at The Gathering 1900 today. They came out quite nice - late though. Unfortunately the logo compo won't be completed before March 25th, which is too late. At least Per Kristiansen put up a link to the NLC TG00 Crew page from gathering.org today. Of course it was hidden under Crew->Tech->Linux, but it's there.

It's quite incredible that even though there's a price of 475 NOK ($ 70), almost 3000 tickets are sold already :-)

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
