I voted. Annoyed that my voting station didn't give out "I voted" stickers. Bastards. My first time voting (I was 17 1/2 in 96) and I don't even get the damn sticker. :-)

nosinut: In the interests of keeping Advogato a place free of charred rubble, I shall ignore your comment.

KDE2 is nice.

Last week for this job is next week. Fun.

explodingdog kicks ass.

neuro: We have the red-light traffic cameras here in northern Virginia, too. Haven't gotten caught by one yet :)

aaronl: When I used to trick-or-treat, what determined us going to houses or not was if they had some sort of halloween-looking stuff out in front - pumpkin, ghosts, cobwebs, whatever. We generally knew who did not celebrate halloween and did not 'threaten' people to give us candy. Certainly things may be different where you are, but there's more to halloween than a bunch of kids going around demanding candy... it's fun to just let loose, use your imagination, and relax every now and then. If you don't want people coming to your door, make it plain to the parents of said children that you do not celebrate halloween and wish to be left alone...or put a sign on your door saying 'No candy, go elsewhere' or whatnot. If you're in any kind of a decent neighborhood, they should respect your wishes.

Gave my two weeks notice to Winstar today. It sucks to have to leave such a great set of coworkers...but the department they were moving me to just wasn't what I wanted.
Now I have to give back all the toys I've had "signed out" for the past year...ah well.
November 10th will be my last day. On November 13th, I begin work as a Unix Admin and programmer for Mitretek. Should be fun.

Got a job offer from a company I interviewed with last Monday. Should get the offer letter tomorrow (They are FedEx'ing it overnight). Should be good <tm>.
Details to follow.

Things do not look good on the work front. Seems like everyone I know has been having job issues...now I've been bitten, too.
So now it's time to start start looking.
More to follow.

Zaitcev: What kind of laptop? I wrote a mini-HOWTO for internal use at our company on how to set up our toshiba satellite 4080XCDTs to work with our Palm Vx's...it's nice being able to sync/backup over IR. If you want, I could get it to you next week...course, you'll probably have figured it out by then :)

John Terpstra of SAMBA fame is coming to speak at my department (the Linux geeks :) today. Ueberspiffy.

*microphone feedback*

If I vanish before October 2001, it's because planning a wedding in the Washington DC area either a) killed me or b) drove me insane.

Thank you for your attention. *click*

Fear my grabs for power. Mowhahaha.

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!
