I've not been very productive lately, but taking care of a baby turns out to be a very time consuming activity :-)...
Here's a summary a short summary of the things I've done and that are relevant for this Advogato diary thing:
- Started looking at the mod_virgule
code. My idea is to add a ChangeLog-style page that would
show on one page all the latest diary entries updates. This
would make it easier to follow what's going on on Advogato.
- I'm making great progress on my small prolog-like
interpreter idea. The thing is 1200 lines long for now
and does almost compile. All the core logic is implemented
now. (Note: It's a complete rewrite).
- I've been looking at the gnome-print code lately to
learn more about printing in GNOME. I will implement
printing support for Dr Genius's geometric figures in the
next few weeks.
- I've thinking about how it could be possible to redesign all the basic UNIX utilities (like init, inetd, cron, lpd, pppd, ...), to make a system that is much more user friendly. Looks like there are some good ideas in MacOS/X in this respect. Apple is using a UNIX kernel in their system, but they have "updated" some of the "historic" UNIX user-space utilities. Interesting perspectives.
