"marge, these people looked deep within my soul and assigned me a number based on the order in which i joined."

logged on and started reading through the news, pleasantly surprised to find i have been certified as an "advogato apprentice". (thanks andrei!)

i've spent the last 24 hours wondering why the PHP interbase extension doesn't have a ibase_num_rows function, and am slowly realising that it probably won't make that much difference to any work i do with it.

interbase is truly awesome, and i am giving MySQL the flick for good. it is easy to install, has great features, and it has all the ACID loveliness you could ever wish for. yumm. i'm so glad borland made it free software and it didn't just become abandonware.

after reading squiggy's diary i thought i'd bite the bullet and finally register for advogato. i don't know whether anyone will end up certifying me, but hopefully in a couple of months when i release some of my very own free (GPL'ed) software my rating will improve.

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.
