Well I have not been good about writing in here lately.

I am going through Andru's proposal and looking to get it into the template. I updated the template w/ hgebel's suggestions and have started to move forward on my PO proposal. Though its old and I know will get serious flames even from myself. : ) Its better than nothing sitting out there.

Must download libgda and get working along with starting to help senor jamest do some gnue forms hacking. Just trying to get all my duckies in a row. : )

Might get more hacking time for a bit and might have new party interested in our consulting services to help the funding of GNUe.

Seriously considering taking advantage of Jonas' offer to sit in FSF booth in Atlanta and hand out GNUe literature. During this PR laden discussion we discussed the possiblity of GNUe gear at least for developers. :-)

Last night I got off my butt and actually compiled balsa from cvs. A little configure magic and viola a working email client that <gasp> sends and receives pop mail.

Next mission. Move to IMAP mail. Mission after that move my mail to own host . : )

Got new developer's guide up and site mildly updated. Still have a ton of work to do on it. As well as work for local soccer club site and some other side work.

Vacation was great. The beach was near perfect. Only problem is the stay was too short.

On vacation. Long day driving (6+ hours) from Arizona to San Diego yesterday. No online time. Spent AM getting caught up on all emails. :) Yeah!!! Brief online time right now. Will probably get some more tonight or tomorrow.

This was a much needed breather. :) Hope to get things back on track next week. I have A LOT going on, but heck aint that what hacking all about?

Been a long time. Stuff is going great with gnome-db. I need to get around to doing report proposal. I have a holiday coming up and plan to get caught up.

My project at work is about at its peak. However, it looks like I may have volunteered myself for more than I am willing to chew. It will be great experience and hopefully I can give some of it back to the community. If those lawyers allow it. : )

Short on time. Long on ideas. Adios.

GNUe is getting big. : ) However, that means harder to keep up with. : ( Missed jamest by a few minutes on Friday so dont where things sit although I imagine not all that great as I didnt see any cvs mail come across the wire.

Might make question as to whether to move CVS to our servers and get bonsai and lxr installed on the repository. Also, probably need to institute bugzilla, gnats or one of the other bug tracking systems at some point.

Have lots on my mind but no definite task list, which is bad for me. I do much better with direct mission other ways I skate around unproductive as there seems to be an overwhelming feeling which would rather be avoided than embraced...

So many things so little time.....

Well the BDAY is here... Whooo HOOO... NOT!

Been having computer withdrawls.. Less than an hour a day will do that to me. Hope to get some work done this weekend. As I will be swamped all next week with real work. : (

Strategic training is over... It was very good learned some principles I can apply to free software projects. Also, allows me to align my strategy for working on government agencies to use free software. : )

I think this may become my mission in life. To get local government to use free software tools and solutions. Please give me wish and luck.

LONG time no entry. Been VERY busy with project at work. Plus Wednesday through Tomorrow I have been in strategic planning meetings. Very interesting stuff. I have taken quite the interest in the business side of the fence. I think more programmers need to understand their customers to better serve them.

Tomorrow I turn a whopping 26 years old. Wow, how time flies I can not believe it. Finally got v0.0.1 of proposal template done, but not on web site yet. I also go tarball of v0.0.1 of gnue forms bundled. Ian gave me source for jforms, but still need to handle getting in cvs and to the web.

Andru @ Treshna has been busy. Wish I had more time to focus on what is going on there and with Gnome-DB. I trust their judgement and am sure things are going well though. : ) Learning some interesting stuff at good ole strategic training, but I suppose sharing here would get me in trouble with some. : ) Muhahaha...

Jamest should be off tomorrow and get some serious work done. YEAH!!! I am jamming along on the PO module stuff. Just waiting for table defs we created a while ago that have been mis placed and then I am off to the races... yippie....

Today spoke with Kenny some from Gnome Documentation Project. Looked at their template stuff. After discussion with Andru from Treshna I will be starting the templates this week. Shouldnt be too much too it. : ) or so I am telling myself.

Appears there is good tool http://www.conglomerate.org for doing docbook stuff. : ) This will be a big plus. Several have asked. I am considering taking the GDP handbook and reworking it fit GNUe as it is under the FDL and makes for a nice start to such a thing.

Anyhow, its time to code. Saw The Whole Nine Yards other night with Bruce Willis. It was pretty funny.

Crabby day for me about GNUe. Need to fix documentation. I can only imagine the stuff Stallman must go through in being a purist to free software. No wonder people think he's incorrigible, I am sure the crap he puts up with makes him less than excitable to deal with people wishing to flame him.

Tomorrow I am home alone with kids, so I should get some hacking done during nap and play times. : ) The question is where do I want to focus my time...... I will have to think about it.....

Well playing with eggdrop and bots a bit. Accidently did a fsckem on #gnue when trying to get help on it. : ) Bad Masta, no donut. Ian has bugs kinked out of JForms a bit so java port is moving forward.

Jamest has been very busy moving client and me with life, but hopefully things get back on track quickly. Have a boat load of mail to respond to. I have done well keeping it all read, but been horrible about responding.

Grabbed Evolution last night. It is nice looking but as advertised heavy ALPHA stuff. So not very functional. I will limp along with what I have for the time being.

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.
