davidw: If you're put off by git, why not give mercurial a try? It's much more intuitive, especially for people familiar with subversion.
robertc: for persistent hashes, I have been pretty happy with qdbm. I can't say whether it fits all your requirements, but it has been faster and more stable than bdb for me. Its successor, which I haven't used, is called tokyo cabinet and there are python bindings floating around for it. It might be worth looking at if you haven't already.
jch: In case you haven't already read them (though it seems unlikely), I believe the SEDA and Capriccio papers both contain similar evaluations of web server latency, SEDA from an event-oriented perspective and Capriccio showing what can be done to improve the performance of a thread-based model.
rillian: 44 nano? nano?!
rufius, as a Mercurial developer I would be interested in hearing what went wrong in your trial.

ncm: I may be biased as a New Yorker and one of the more than one hundred thousand people who publically protested the war in New York City before it started, but I doubt you have any idea what "most Americans" think. Maybe you find it comforting to believe that the government wouldn't behave the way it does without the support of "most Americans"? I can see why, but it's unfortunately a bit naive. If you were American, what would you have done to prevent the invasion?

ncm: are you being deliberately condescending?

More mercurial hacking: I've written a remote diff extension, to allow you to diff against other repositories. This also supports diffs against local branches, which is why I wrote it.

I've just rewritten "local branch" support for Mercurial. These are basically clones that share a working directory, making the cost of using branches much lower. One of the more common complaints I hear about Mercurial is from git users who miss git-style branches. Hopefully this extension fixes that.

Weird. My account disappeared, but when I recreated it I got my old diary entries back. And I'm still a Journeyer, even though the actual certifications have vanished.

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.
