Well, my problems with NSI are apparently over and everything was modified/changed over on time. Although I am still receiving notifications that stuff can't be changed because it is already changed (i.e. requests from over a week ago are finally coming through), the important stuff was done on time. Thank god! Why hasn't NSI updated its system? Why are they still using that antique email based system?

I just discovered the <a href="">Utah-GLX</a> project on SourceForge which has hardware accelerated OpenGL for many Matrox, ATI, nVidia, Sis, and S3 chipsets as well as the Intel 810. This is too cool. I now have HW acclerated OpenGL on my notebook which uses an ATI Rage LT chipset. Quake runs really nice now.

Not much to post for today, except that my recent changes to the domains and hosts I am responsible for through NSI are taking forever (and I still don't know if they are effective yet). We are moving everything over to a new ISP (colocating) and I have no idea of whether or not the IP changes are taking place at internic (NSI) and whether or not anything will be accessible come monday morning. Kills my whole weekend (and will no doubt kill my entire week). Perhaps other registrars are better?

Oh well, several people have certified me as Apprentice (which I appreciate) so I can now post (which I have done). I am now on my way (I hope).

My work on the Phoenix project hasn't progressed much since I am preoccupied with the imminent move of my office (and my company to new offices). Hopefully, once I get moved, the new lines are installed, and NSI figures its shit out I will get back to work.

Well, I've just recently "officially" started the Phoenix project. I don't want to publicize it much yet (as its not ready), but I hope to have some working code and more complete plan within the next month.

Well this is my first diary entry.

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.
