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.

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!
