jdub: Depends on your point of view, really. Personally, I'd say Ballmer's right; for Microsoft, it is about a viable business, not a viable industry. Personally, my motivations are: a) viable industry, b) good times [the people are fantastic, by and large], c) disposing of spare time while having fun, d) fame, e) fortune. Of course, it would be nice if everyone worked together and had a nice, viable, industry built on love.

But these are *people* we're talking about.
nymia: aseigo is a senior KDE developer, indeed.

a debian developer, and some responses
So, a few days ago, I became a Debian Developer, after three and a half years. Yay, and stuff. Unfortunately, I got my secret decoder ring right as exams started, ugh.

liedra: Aren't green P's for primary producers, who can't take passengers?
sxpert: Please take it off Advogato.

Random rambling: Been using GNOME (not by choice), trying to like it, failing. The "let's hide away anything useful in GConf" attitude, the buggy autohide on the panel, gnome-terminal ... it's way too obnoxious to be able to use regularly.

pyblosxom->{advogato,lj} propagation working
So, I finally got around to looking at my Pyblosxom stuff again, and ended up fixing my propagation script to work. It sorts through all the day's entries, works out via the #propagate header where they're destined to, and sends them to my Advogato or LiveJournal diaries (or both), depending on said header. It's probably buggy as crap, tho. My script to do GnuPG mail entries (slightly different from jdub's) also works; this entry originated in mutt and will end up in both Advogato and LJ; word!

I'll clean the scripts up a bit and post them up on my site soonish.

dwmw2: "BBQ Chicken's", indeed. It's generally quite depressing ("whose an idiot? your an idiot!"); thanks for pointing out one of my pet hates.

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.
