Back from Vacation

Well I'm back from vacation! It was a fun trip. My mom, sister, and I went to several towns near the coast in Northern California. The vacation was mainly for my sister, who got to visit the ocean, an aquarium, and the redwoods. I have a lot of pictures (a 16MB memory stick full, plus some on a 64MB stick), which I'll post up on my gallery sometime.


I had an idea during my vacation for a security application I call Knock-Knock. I'll post more about this later when I have the ideas sorted out, and maybe a possible implementation.


Wow, you leave for a few days and the listservs finally become active. The new gnupdate-i18n listserv had several posts between some new translators. With luck, it will stay active.

I have several upcoming plans for gpkg and libpackman, such as expression parsing (formatted information output from a package or database) and tighter integration between libpackman and libcomprex. We'll see how much I can get done tonight, now that I'm back and itchin' to code.

RUN Magazines

My Commodore RUN magazines haven't arrived yet. Hopefully the guy is just delayed. I think I'd better contact him.


Actually, I was trying to help. I told you how I started and what you could do to get involved. How is that being rude? I think you are the one who needs to apologize to me, and to the rest of Advogato. And then it may be time for you to just leave.
