I almost lost my primary HD (fiuuu!!), and I dont know why. I suspect that was overheat (I have 4 IDE devices on my small box: 2 HD's, a old cdrom drive and a ZIP 100 internal IDE). My machine simply was 'stunned', and when rebooted wasnt founding my primary HD (a Quantum 10G one). I just found it early morning. Just switched off my box and went to work. @night I removed my case cover (amazing! it was in place after all this years) and my machine booted without any problems running for hours now. It's in 'observation mode' now.
So much to do! PCPA already got the .DGN input filter to work. We are now defining how much from the DGN DB-linkage we will implement in GRASS. I suggested a light-weigth version with a tupple of words for each poligon representing (table_id,row), with 2 simple tables grass_tables(table_id,table_name,table_collumn) and grass_queries() with 'complex_queries' stored with user-friendly names. Our GIS partners have other plans in mind.. :/ I have to convince them that we dont have time for more complex mods.
Finally I published our PHP library to application development for WEB/PHP environments. Take a look at http://bazar.conectiva.com.br/~bruder/wildweb for more info.
Speech at Fenasoft
I have to send my presentation slides for my "palestra" (how is that in english?) to the FENASOFT organization. ARGH. I'm late on that.
My work now has so much boring no-coding work. And so much meetings. :/
