Back to work
I'm now employed at Eazel, where I get to work with really great people, and work on interesting and challenging things.
I just started paying regular attention to Advogato again a couple weeks ago. It seems that the pace of new diary entries is quite a bit slower than, say, six months ago, despite the steady influx of new users. On that note, I saw someone recently mention that it's difficult for an isolated user to "break in" to the certification loop. Not exactly. The trust metric is supposed to be based on contributions to the open source community, so if you work on open source projects, tell everyone what they are.
It seems fashionable to compose Advogato diaries (and also perhaps articles) in one's preferred editor, and paste it into Advogato's forms later, in order to avoid browser crashes and loss of data. I should begin doing this myself. Is it possible that we could have an 'upload' option for diary/article content so that remote textfiles can be used? Otherwise, I guess I just don't know the trick for using cut-n-paste in X on a multi-screen textfile in one shot.
