Older blog entries for ib (starting at number 2)

19 Oct 2002 (updated 20 Oct 2002 at 01:11 UTC) »

Yesterday night, while Jill and I were moving boxes from the old to our new house, a guy on a bike rode spast, came to a screeching halt and started eyeing our garage, the house and us. Later we saw him again, some blocks down, surrounded by cop-cars and cops. Guess we won't get broken in tonight :)


First stab at rodent, an Advogato-XMLRPC method for Ruby.

  1: #!/usr/bin/env ruby
  3: require 'rodent'
  5: advog = Advogato.new
  7: advog.connect
  8: advog.my_uname = "ib"
 10: entries = advog.get_my_numentries.to_i
 12: 0.upto(entries-1) do | number |
 13:   entry = advog.get_my_entry(number)
 14:   printf( "\n-------------------[ entry #%i ] -----------------\n", number+1)
 15:   printf("%s\n\n", entry)
 16: end

Bill has posted an extensive and pretty informative list of things, Ruby newbies should know.

Why the f****, does that guy certify himself as master? Well, I don't really think I am one, but others seem to, and since I switched my account from jLoki to ib, I might as well carry that over.

I know, it's XAB to do this, but jLoki is some period in my past, I'd rather not deal with any more than I have to, and since I use ib everywhere but here, I decided to switch.

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.
