What a fun week.....</sarcasm>

Work

Work stressed me out like never before. I came home most nights and just collapsed on the couch and slept for an hour or 3 before doing anything constructive. I was just dead exhausted from the mental strain at work. Whats worse, this seems to have done some odd things to my normal sleep patterns, and now I can't get more than 3~4 hours of sleep at night, which is only compounding the situation ): But now it's the weekend and I hope to catch up on some sleep and get things somewhat back in order, just to start over again next week. Good news is that I'm only at work for Mon - Wed of next week, due to flying out to Red Hat on Thursday. Also we have Monday off so a good weekend.

Fedora Legacy

The discussion of removing Fedora Legacy support of RHL 7.2 and 8.0 went pretty well. Most people saw good reasoning behind removing it, very few really really wanted to keep it. I think I've made up my mind and support will be dropped on Monday. I'll have to go through bugzilla and update all comments to reflect this, pushing some things into testing that were waiting on 7.2/8.0 stuff.

Pushed cvs into updates-testing, but a user reported that cvs was claiming it needed a dep of "no". User was able to just rebuild the srpm and no more "no" dep. Seems that something went wrong in mach to cause the dep. Will have to investigate.

Personal

NetFlix sent me Daredevil (well I picked it out). Watched it, wasn't too awful. My wife and I plan on going to see Shrek 2 in the very near future. Would have gone tonight if I hadn't taken a longer nap that I originally planned.

Tried to yum upgrade my FC1 x86-64 system to FC2 x86-64. Didn't realize I had "exactarch=1" set in my yum.conf and this seems to have caused some severe problems. All my applications seem to be looking for /lib and /usr/lib stuff rather than /lib64 and such. X is broken, so is most of KDE. I'm really not sure where to go from here, but I'll figure something out (with help from smarter people than I of course). So, word to the wise, remove exactarch=1 from your yumconf if doing upgrade.

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.
