Busy busy _BUSY_ month!

TCP/IP stack on back burner till I find some place or someone willing to finance me to finish it. :-P

Another section of web pages done, including some private ones.

Got employment that is finally acceptable. (in other words, Linux related)

Time to plop in some spinlocks in arcnet to fix wonkyness. Thanks to jmr for the pentium chip.

Lots of vistor visits.

Decisions, decisions, decisions were made 2 weeks ago.

I suppose I need to get back into code mode, but that has to wait a few days yet. To many personal tasks to get out of the way before I can get back to writing more code or building more hardware.

I hope I can then finish up all I have to do within 2 weeks for a web based project, then I can get to clear off alot of the other little projects that need to be completed.

Tick tick tick goes the clock.

It has been a long and precarious time since I last made an entry. It seems that I had the need to totally immerse myself into fits of codeing and gameplay (DO][OM) to keep my mind off of the faithful day (march 17). The visitor arrived as expected with tales of horror. Quite uncool things, and very disturbing, most of it being of very gruesome and of a graphic nature.

The events of six years past are still burning with great passion. I am not entirely sure if this is a good thing or not. The intuitive advisor feels I should regroup the visitor, but I personally am not in a position to regroup anything at this point and intend on checking all of the cards in my hand as other potential options do exist. I do not know which branch of the twisting forked road of life to take. So many decisions I have to make, facts to wiegh, etc. I feel like a 6502 at 250KHz with 10K of RAM trying to emulate an i686 at 400MHz with 512M RAM and running Linux. My program of life is thrashing wildly. I have only a simple program, and no answer has yet been copied to the vast console in my brain. The program is as follows, in funny BASIC:

0 X=0

10 REM MAKE A DECISION

20 DECISION=INT(RAN(0)*100)/10

30 X=X+1

40 REM DECIDE WHAT TO DO WITH THE DECISION

50 IF DECISION > 9.8THEN SOMETIMES GOTO 70 ELSE GOTO 20

60 REM OUTPUT HARDNESSS OF DECISION

70 PRINT "DECIDE THIS FACT AFTER "X" CONSIDERATIONS"

(march 17)

Visitor arrived.

We touched, eyes were opened, and true answers were given.

Visitor left.

Yawn, 20 hours later, full service was restored. Wonder how much the insurance comapny is gonna be hit up for on that stunt... :-)

Basically vegitated all day. Felt good to do that. Tomarrow I have to get my rear in gear to finish a web project.

No visitors.

Blah, some idiot with an oversized truck ripped out a major AT&T fiber backbone rendering my home system netless for 4 hours. As of this writing, it has been 7 hours and the other location still has no service. Geez, such fun this week, piles of bumbling idiots are surrounding me and constantly interrupting me.

No visitors.

Putzed arround on the c128d all day. Relaxation is wonderful isn't it? I think so.

No visitors.

Did nothing but watch a man trying his best not to fuck up as he repaired our well. He got the job done, however the Great Black Cloud didn't make his task easy. Many cuss words were uttered and I had all i could do to not laff. :-)

No visitors.

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!
