I've got somewhere to live! I'm happy now! Weee!

I shouldn't be a Journeyer, though.

Maybe more later.

Agh. Moving from a user-friendly Debian system with at least a year's worth of configuration files to Solaris boxen without most of my favourite software is certainly a painful experience. CDE sucks, pine sucks, Solaris vi sucks. Bigtime.

Discovered some sort of clash between mutt (which I had to install) and procmail, probably related to locking. Fills up my mailboxes with null bytes occasionally. Hmmm...

In Linköping. Very busy week behind me, and another one coming right up. It's loads of fun. Living situation sort of resolving too.

Cut my hair today. Now it's much more maintainable, which is good considering that I have some interesting times ahead of me, with no place to live... A real rock 'n roll lifestyle.

PyQt compilation is *extremely* slow. I'm thinking about writing a PyQt backend for anygui, hoping that it won't be so hard now that I've done a PyGTK one already. I only have to learn Qt, but that can't be much harder than GTK+, methinks. We'll see...

Things are looking good. I've actually written some code in the last couple of days, which feels nice. Before, every time I've tried to join a project I've been very enthusiastic the first days, participated in some discussion and so on, but when it came to implementing the ideas, I'd run out of steam (hi, civil guys! sorry...). This time, however, I've actually managed to produce some code for the anygui project, specifically a PyGTK backend. It's only 200 lines of ripped-off Python, but it's mine (and it works, mostly)! I was starting to think I wasn't meant to be a programmer.

In other news, reality sucks. I'm going back to school, but in a new town, and I haven't even got a lead on an apartment. Hopefully, something will present itself. I hate having to deal with such practical problems though. I wish life was more like my daydreams.

mrorganic: Why not try unstable (sid) or testing (woody)? They have glibc 2.2 and XFree86 4, and unstable has been stable enough for me. But perhaps there are other reasons to use Progeny?

Aaargh! Frustration! Fscking bloody segfaults! Fscking bloody so-called high-level languages! I hate C!

Or perhaps I just need some sleep.

Doing something impulsive is good for you. I was feeling very grumpy this morning (afternoon, more exactly), and after sitting on my room for a couple of hours, not doing anything except getting more and more irritated by my flatmates and a guy who is visiting, something had to be done. So I went to town (45 mins subway), ate kebab and saw "High Fidelity", which I've been meaning to see for some time now. Loved the book, the movie is also very good. Of course, I very much recommend reading the book first, as always, but having said that, I think the actors fit my mental image of their roles very well. You should see it too.

Congrats, jlp. A day late, but I blame the timezones.

The conference was better than expected. Theo de Raadt was great, he summarized the OpenBSD philosophy very clearly, I think. He sold me on it, at least. I need more machines, triple booting would just suck... What little I saw of alans talk was good too, but starting at 9:00 is just inhumane!

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!
