Back on track now to do the projects I want to do. Sorry bout the delay folks. firecracker is now off the drawing board and will be up at my non-updated personal website soon enough. I am planning a complete site redesign since ocamd.com is basically hosting files I made at UCSC two or three years ago. I have 100 MB total disk space at my hosting facility but I think that will be enough for some source files, binaries, and documentation, as well as the official web site. If anyone is artistic and wants to contribute artwork for firecracker (it's a penetration testing tool for Linux that I'm probably going to release under the GPL), please contact me as soon as possible. I will keep you updated on developments as well as a launch date when I am finished with QA. Thanks for being patient :)


Whew. Nice to be home after being "on tour" for the last 2 months. H2K to Defcon to IS2K (Seoul) to Linuxworld. Next summer I plan to spend more time not travelling... except maybe for NYC or Las Vegas. Okay, back to work. I'm going to finish up some writing work I've been putting off and then I'll have more time to write code and/or manage the software projects I've already initiated. I'm trying not to stretch myself too thin, so I need to keep it simple. Writing, Francesca, skateboarding will probably end up turning into Day Job, Francesca, skateboarding, writing... when I finish writing it will become Day Job, Francesca (if she puts up with me), skateboarding, and project management.

I think I can I think I can =)

I just received e-mail confirmation from Emmanuel Goldstein about being a speaker at HOPE2K. I am so stoked I think I'm going to take the day off and go skateboarding, lay out on the beach, and drink some beer at Kennedy's. This has really made my day and I'll get to do a few shameless plugs in front of a crowd that's estimated to be 25% Script Kiddies and 30% Legit. If I was cool, I could post my first draft of my "Linux Security and Internet Privacy" talk, but I suck :)

Linus, non sum dignus.

The product "Freedom" at Zero Knowledge is quite intriguing. I am hoping that someone else wants to work on a competing product licensed under the GNU GPL. GFreedom?... GNUsurf?

I plan to have the gnuidea.com site up within the next several months. (edited 10 May, 2001)

Does anyone have any advice for how to release code on a personal website? Anyone use CVS? I was just thinking of putting source files (in C, perl, python) and associated binaries/header files in an public directory for FTP access but I am thinking there must be a more creative and effective way to do things. Well, I am all ears so feel free to send me your flames and comments.

Best regards to all,

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.
