Seems I didn't brave Foyle's, after all. Lots of stuff, mainly boiling down to "so tired, so incredibly tired, there's a nice, warm cozy home right here, not moving at all".

With a bit of luck... Actually, with a bit of even more luck, I shall do some hardware disassembly and get a better gfx card in new-head (the one out of old-head).

So, comes Sunday, I shall brave the halls of Foyle's and see what I can pick up in the way of concise DirectDraw and Direct3D references I can pick up, then we shall see how flexible the lispg backend structure ACTUALLY is.

If I play this right, there might even be an ILC paper in this (on a DSL track if there is one).

And, indeed, I have been inactive. I mostly blame work (lots of bespoke throw-away code, not a single byte of it in lisp).

And now, small-cl-src (and small-cl-src-discuss are resurrected.

Thanks, Mario!

UK-Lispers has been resurrected, courtesy of Mick Levine and the ALU. All subscribers should have been informed via mail a week or so ago.

It seems as if small-cl-src (and -discuss) are well on their way to be resurrected thanks to Mario, Erik and common-lisp.net.

Alas, stuff meant that my intended April Fool's Joke wasn't completed. I guess the Swedish lispers will be handed what I have within a few days.

Nopes, no mailing lists. I might be able to recover the subscriber data for uk-lispers and small-cl-src. I shall see about the archived posts.

Now, that was interesting.

Unplug the ATA controller and the CD-ROM is bootable-from. With a bootable CD-ROM, we can (temporarily) get a network module up and with a network module, we can by sheer force of apt get a new kernel down and with a new kernel, we can then shove the ATA controller back in place, creating vastly more diskspace than before (imagine a decimal order of magnitude), making for lots of nicely chunky free space.

Then, of course, comes the fun of juggling data around and coalese stuff into less unsuitable chunking. Should've gone for LVM, shouldn't I?

Anyway, that means all bar lists should be back on-line and I should hopefully have time to sort them through this week.

Ahahaha. Haha. Hah. Well, that was "fun", having most (if not all) modules eaten by an interesting combination of build tools and "make modules_install". Hopefully everything should be back on track soon.

Web sites up. Mailing lists not up.

New chassis in place. No data transferred over. In short, "things are still not working". Now that I have enough computer for emergency needs, I can look at data transferage.

Dead UPS - Fixed. Failing IDE drive - Not fixed. Dead network card - Not fixed.

Hoppefully, it will be fixed this evening. Until then, src.hexapodia.net will be off-line. So will the uk-lispers and small-cl-src lists. Once things are back, I intend to package up the uk-lispers archive and subscriber list and hand it to Nick Levine.

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.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
