Good news (finally). After some help from BigKnife (thanks) I'm starting to patch bsd.port.mk. Wish me luck!

Found some 'trouble' with user-based ports system. I have to find a way to overide the path included within packages. Hopefully there may be an environment variable or else I can create one. I'll have to check later when I'm on my workstation and hopefully I can get some help from the FreeBSD developers.

Good news, I thought of an idea of a user based ports system addition eg. 'normal' users can register and install ports in their own home directories. I'll be working on it, trying to implement it on my home machine, then will later submit it, hopefully I can get some help :)

Did a lot of reading on SCSI programming. My experiance with it is still somewhat limited, but I'm learning. Hopefully in the next few weeks I'll have some beginner's skill in device driver writing

Was going to submit updated cvsupit package, but relized someone beat me to it (darn) Hopefully I can find something else to contribute which is in my limitations.

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.
