I have decided to majorly cut down on the time I spend on IRC. Instead of staying on LinuxNet 24/7, I am just going to come on when it strikes my fancy. This will be much easier when I have a social life again. All of my friends left town since we have the entire next week off from school.

I have decided my room needs office furniture, since my parents are not going to let me have an office. This is sort of a problem, as my room is pretty much full. Oh well. I'll probably go to Office Depot today and find a nice hutch.

Work-related: A little work done this week. Mainly fixing up Slashapp, and a little bit on the screensaver capplet. Slashapp now only has two real things that need to be done to it:

  • Make the site changes actually take effect
  • Handle resizing of the panel properly
Craig Small or I will hopefully finish that up any day now. With this, your Slashapp will be configurable to read any site on the net with the appropriate RDF/XML file. While we're at it, we're searching for a new name :) The screensaver capplet is going much better, now that I scrapped all progress and started over. I'll probably submit a patch, with a ChangeLog, to jrb in the next couple of days. Wish me luck.

Hacking can be so frustrating. Gave up on the idea of using Glade, reverted stuff to old hand-done UI. Moved to work on keyboard-properties capplet, but got stuck on a really stupid bug forever. Current status: hacking onward.

Personal stuff: watched Swimming with Sharks with my mom. She picked me up from school since it was snowing. I hope it snows tomorrow. A snow day would kick an immense amount of ass.

Decided to start over on my control-center work. I think Glade use may be relegated to the capplets. Was sure to watch plenty of annoying music videos, as well as most of the original Highlander movie.

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.
