cert inflation?

Comparing yesterday's cert stats with those from one year ago show that while the number of users grew with almost 40%, the certificate distribution hasn't changed that very much. Sure, a higher percentage is Journeyer than before, but it isn't really a big difference.

I'd like to see negative certificates.

RockBox 1.0 was relased this weekend. Some 14000 lines of code makes a basic firmware that runs and can play mp3s. It rocks!

raph, an analog modem has around 130ms latency, 50ms requires ISDN or something.

I mean, if we're talking about the time it takes to for example ping the nearest possible server and get a reply back.

Allow me to introduce this very useful time waster:

RockBox is really growing, counting 7500 lines of code the other day. Björn and Linus work like crazy on the low levels, with the ATA code soon coming, followed by the FAT32. Linus is doing good progress on the I2C with the MAS. We might be able to make the thing play mp3s before the end of this month! LCD code, keypad code, tetris and application code are getting fed into the CVS too. The entire crowd is moving in the same direction... Is this the first commercial hardisk-based mp3-player that gets an open source firmware replacement?

The recent cURL release (7.9.6) has turned out to be quite stable and has not resulted in many bug reports at all, even though it is more frequently downloaded than any other release has ever been before. We are doing good progress in making libcurl a really good library, and recent development and improvemt on the multi interface looks promising for the future.

I did put in some effort and pulled trough my $EDITOR fixes in the Subversion project, so that my "emacs -nw" $EDITOR started working again! ;-) It sure is a lively project. Almost 1000 mails posted on the dev list last month alone. Uh, speaking of that, I now archive all those mails in a separate web page to make web browsing the dev list archives easier.

Found the program 'muh' the other day. Great little app. Perfect to run on my home-box, to allow me to SSH home from work and then IRC through the tunnel to muh and out to openprojects.net. Works great! Good way to avoid the claustrophobia a http proxy can give you! ;-)

hey edd! I dig your sh instead of soap example...

Ah, my automatic certificate and user stats page broke when the new CSS stuff was added. I think I might've fixed it again now. We'll see.

So I finally got myself an Archos Recorder (harddisk-based mp3-player) and now I feel more motivated to join in project Rockbox with my full attention.

OK, I've completed the curl questionnaire analysis. It did reveal a few surprises.

cURL is soon going to be bundled with that big software package you know already...

We're now searching for people to complete and maintain a true C++ interface for libcurl. I also fell over a postgres/curl binding with goodle that looked interesting, but the site refused my connections...

Over and out.
