Just because I can, and because I think it's useful for google to know about this, I wrote up a doc about handling Microsoft Office Document Scanning TNEF and TIFFs in Linux. Sometimes I get these TIFFs in a TNEF attachment that aren't really TIFFs, they're actually JPEG-in-TIFFs. Apparently some obscure Microsoft software is still generating these, despite the standard having been withdrawn. In any event, I figured out a way to get the JPEG out of the TIFF without too much trouble and made a short little web page about it.

Another year and a half, another post... Finished up the Ph.D. exams last year. My study group made some decent notes on the Binghamton University qualifying exams. Still trying to find a topic and finish up collecting data on a parallelized xml parsers...

Wow. Another year, another post. Gone from Brandeis, back at Binghamton. I'm working on a lot of one-off projects in Grid Computing (binary xml, gridftp DDoS resilience, high performance data transfer in componentware) right now. If anything takes off, I'll post about it...

Again, it's been a long time since I posted. In the mean time, jscheme4eclipse has been started and worked up to a reasonably useful state. Extremities is what I'm on to now, and I'm very excited. I'm finally able to combine my research work with my opensource work.

It's been a long time since I posted, but tchambery and myself, together with a couple other people have been working on zClipse, writing plugins for Eclipse. In particular, we have Insectivore, CompleteClipse, SourceControl, and zMail in the works.

I have been working on a new version of Jacob, called Esau. It's implemented on JBoss and MySQL, though the intention is that it will work on any J2EE server (at some point).

The idea is that Esau will continue to evolve as the community that uses it evolves.

I wrote a paper on it here

I built a little discussion board with my friend tchambery a while back, and now I'm working on a group calendar tool to go along with it.

JaCoB: Jacob Community Board is the thing...

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.
