Time warp
Whoa. It's been a while since my last diary entry. Time to catch up.

The return of Eucalyptus

I've decided to resume development on Eucalyptus. Well, perhaps it would be more accurate to say that I'm starting over. The original program was very Amiga-centric and doesn't (obviously) want to port cleanly to Linux/Unix. Plus, it just doesn't feel right. Some may agree with me: coding is very much an art form.

I've spent the last couple months in what little spare time I've had jotting down new ideas and working things out. Now, I can finally start hacking things up a bit.


I remember last year conversing briefly on IRC with raph about our respective sons when they were still "in the oven." It's nice to read about how Max is growing. They really are rewarding.

My son, Teddy, is also growing at an astronomical rate. His older sister was, and still is, petite. At 2 years, she is still shy of 30 pounds. At 6 months, Teddy is quickly closing in on 20 pounds. Yeesh.

He's starting to rock back and forth on his hands and knees, and will sit unsupported for quite a while. And he has this obsession with my keys....

The house that Jack bought

Michelle and I are buying a new home. It's very exciting! It's also very frustrating to have to wait for it to be built!! We drive by the site once a week to see the progress and take pictures. Electricity was finally run, and we are waiting for the drywall to be put up, which has been sitting in palettes for weeks. ARGH!

My rowing station

Work is going well. My issued laptop is finally usable. (It was given to me sans power adapter. So it sat on my desk for two weeks until a new one was ordered.)

On the other hand, internal politics are flaring up more often now as our little startup moves more toward a corporate feel. Such is life in the world of dot-coms.

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.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
