That reminds me of my trip to Disney Land a few years back. In their little
space exploration area (or whatever it was), they had computers mounted in
the walls. One of them had a DNS error and another had something like a
General Protection Fault.
Too bad they weren't running Linux. "Core dumped" sounds a lot more
appropriate for a space exhibit ;)
I sent in my monthly LinuxFund
report today. This one felt good to write, as it made me realize just
how much I accomplished this past month. I may start putting these up
on GNUpdate.org so that people
can get a feel for how the project is moving along.
I'll be doing a rewrite of the dependency framework soon, so that support
for different dependency types will work a bit better. Right now, all
dependencies are kind of bunched together. I just haven't gotten around to
separating them. Now that the Debian package module is at a mostly working
state, it's important to get that all fixed up. I'll probably spend the
next day or two working on it. It shouldn't be much code.
Oh, and we got a Finnish translator today!
I've been working on my site the past couple of days. The backend is
done in Ruby, which I'm beginning to really like. I've written SSI, Perl,
PHP, XML/XSLT, Python, and Java backends, but never Ruby, until this
site of course. A few of the changes I have made are the new theme
support, weblog, and a
private XML-RPC interface. I'm developing the weblog because I want better
integration with my website, as well as some features such as message boards
and automatic linking to things via keywords.
I plan on keeping my weblog here as well. Basically, I'd like to make a
script that takes my weblog entries and outputs it both to Advogato, via
its XML-RPC interface, and to my site, also via an XML-RPC interface.
Simply pulling the entries off Advogato wouldn't be sufficient, since there
are some tags I want to add that would be more specific to my website.
I'm contemplating adding a small "Reply" link on the bottom of each Advogato
post, linking to my message board. I don't know if this would be considered
annoying to anybody, so I'd like an opinion or two on this. If people don't
like it, I'll leave the message board functionality to my site's weblog
