GChemPaint
GChemPaint (CVS Head) was translated about 80%.
Now I need to compile and run it to test my translation.
I found that related projects (gchemutils, chemical-mime-data) aren't translated also,
and 'm going to translate them.
CISSP
'CISSP Prep Guide' is finished. I read Sybex study guide now.

GChemPaint
Today I found that GChemPaint is not translated to russian!
In between my previous lifes I wanted some free organic chemistry editor
and was a hard user of 3 or 4 proprietary win16/dos program.
So it's time to translate =)

CISSP
Payment for my CISSP exam attempt at December has been confirmed by boss.
So at the monday I'll try to register. Hope a seat is available =)

I read chapter 4 ('Cryptography') of 'CISSP Prep Guide'.
I can eat about 1 chapter per day from this book, therefore it will be closed in a week.
It's old and outdated quick-brief-review-like thingy I bought about 5 years ago, so I doubt it covers modern version of exam content.

Next I'm going to read Sybex 'CISSP Study Guide'.

In the mailbox I found an invitation to special meeting for 'e-Russia' government program. "Using of open source in the state organisations" or so. I introduce russian GNOME for this kind of events.

May be I need to collect some facts on the topic 'Open Source and Government/State relations' for some european countries, because there is a similar agenda item.

fonts
Today I overlooked some free Abkhasian fonts.

Unfortunatelly (? ;-) all of them are TTF, so it's hard to quickly decide how good/bad them are. Most likely ttf instructions were generated automagically, so I safely can suggest that outlines of glyphs aren't perfect.

As I can see there is a little difference between a "latin + russian" and "abkhasian" font. Abkhasian one uses some glyphs that are close to latin/cyrillic and can be simply made by modification of suitable glyphs. So it's possible to cover abkhasians by simple extention of the gnu-gs (aka URW) fonts.

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.
