boy tk, I hope you're moving to k5 for the atmosphere

if you were ready to sit down and try to engineer a clone of the Street after reading Snow Crash like I was, you might like this. It's called Second Life. It's about the closest I've seen anything get to the Street so far. I'll be posting more details/screenshots in my livejournal later.

i'm getting fat from eating christmas cookies, someone please take them away.

damn i'm happy today :)
the battery in my ipaq wouldn't charge, and I thought it had to do with linux apm, but it turns out it was the sleeve it was sitting in. replaced it with a new pcmcia sleeve and boom! here's a screenshot of me playing with a julia fractal.

wow it's interesting to see what some of the older article topics on advogato were (I needed a change from sco and introspector)...


some of my favorites so far:
"the DVD crack"
Sourceforge goes beta (wow)
ReiserFS filling the journaling fs gap in Linux
article 9 ALREADY talking about article peer review!
Napster controversy over the open source client 'Gnap'

of course the list goes on and on. I wonder what happened to "Advogato's number"?

hey mpr, getting any of my e-mails?


hacker: I threw my linksys BE-whatever off a building and bought the netgear MR-814 you talked about. It rocks. It has plenty more features, and they actually f***in work. I called Linksys support before I did this to see what they were going to say, and I got the same recommendation that others got: to flash the firmware down a version, which I hear turns it into a brick with an antenna. So thanks :)

tk: thanks to your links I find myself reading and learning lojban today (heh). Probably the fact that I just read Snow Crash also has something to contribute to this....
hacker : I am so glad you posted your last entry. I bought this same model 3 weeks ago offline and am having the EXACT same problems. I thought it was me (or my cable internet provider). Downloads stall, everything loses connection after no more than an hour. I went to see if there were firmware upgrades but it turns out it came with the latest version. Thanks for letting me know I'm not crazy.
raph: which cvs server does mod_virgule sit on these days? I got my current tree from gnome.org but the index page isn't the same with what is currenly being used.

Linux users: wanna dare SCO to sue you?

so today I hear news about Gentoo starting a game company for linux games. pretty neat stuff, especially since they're already releasing the cd image for America's Army (I kind of has reserves about that games motivations...). The dl site is being killed though, so I was thinking about starting a torrent since I've never used bittorrent before, but word on the street is there's already one going. it's here. It's going now and working great... Bram bittorrent rocks. Thanks for some cool software.

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.
