ringbark: I see pmcgovern as having been certified by several more people than himself as master, but I don't immediately see how he's certified as master. I don't worry about it too much, because there are simply some things about advogato that are 'magic'.

wiki is clearly one of these weird "free software hacker" terms. It seems very bizzare to me, any time I see it. Eventually, it may even bother me enough to figure out where that reference comes from.

Alive without breath
As cold as death;
Never thirsty, ever drinking,
All in mail, ever clinking.

I finished the bonsai section of my Webtools Howto today. It's in need of some more editing, both for content, and general gramar/markup issues. I'm very pleased to have gotten it done, and I think it's a lot better than the old docs.
I also fired off my mail to the gnome-sysadmin team that I'm ready to proced with the LXR and bonsai upgrades on cvs.gnome.org. I think I've got it planned out pretty well, although I'm going to see if I can't talk jdub or pzb into being "on hand" for assistance, in case I've forgotten something, or get stuck.


I certified pzb just a minute ago, as I didn't know he had an account before this. I also changed the level at which I've certified Telsa and jdub, as they are clearly contributing enough to be journeyers. Telsa may not believe that, but it IS true. drake just signed up today, and he's writing the GDP XSL stylesheets, so journeyer for now.


I didn't get out for a bike ride today, but I'll get there tomorrow. I need to make some long pants so that I can go biking, as it's simply too cold to go without them. My parents got some great A.M.C. (Applachian Mountain Club) poly-pro long sleeve shirts when they went backpacking for their Anniversery. They're GREAT shirts, they do a nice job wicking moisture away, keep you relatively warm, and let you breathe. Much MUCH MUCH more comfortable than any other brand that I've ever found. Amazing. I think I'll stop at the store and price leg warmers while I'm out tomorrow. I've got a rear fender hooked up nicely, but my bike doesn't have the clearance for a front fender (darn), so I'll just have to make due. I don't think it will matter that much, although I'd like to get some fenders on my fixed gear bike too.
I found this GREAT site tonight, from one of the bike mailing lists. http://www.ultracycling.com/ This is just the sort of biking that I want to get into doing, and it's got some good information on keeping healthy. I'm only doing about 60 miles on my long rides right now, but I think I can move that up fairly quickly, with a little bit of work. WAY past my bedtime now, so I'll hit the hay.

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.
