Older blog entries for joshferraro (starting at number 0)

Well, this is my first entry. Recently I have been working with the Koha project (www.koha.org) which is an open source circulation system for libraries (as in books, not as in software). The library system that I work for (Nelsonville Public; www.athenscounty.lib.oh.us) has sponsored the development of MARC compatibility (MARC is a markup language for circulation records and pretty much the standard in the library world [although there are several different versions {flavors?} of MARC]). Koha is at version 1.9 which has full MARC support but still has some bugs to work out. Nelsonville will begin using the new system with version 2.0. Although I am listed as a developer, my strength is not in the programming aspect of development (I would like to find the time to learn a bit more Perl, but things are too busy right now).

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.
