Wow, a post. A rare sight indeed. Anyway, I got accepted into this years SoC, with the project on making Pango support vertical writing. Coolness! There’s also some movement towards getting us (the students) to GUADEC, even though the registration process is formally over. Coolness too, especially if it works out.
Some other pimping I didn’t get around to before: My writing for IBM developerWorks went nicely, and in addition to the previously contracted series, I got to write 3 more articles. One of them is already up, this time our fine bindings guys get some love and fame. You might have noticed it’s published in “AIX and Unix” section this time, that was a kind of sekret projekt they got going on, which basically increased demand for new stuff, and by extension my opportunites to write something. I must say that writing on stuff you know and love is a joy, the only thing that sucks (besides my perennial ability to stick to schedules, sigh) is the hopelessly low word limit, I hate it with passion.
Ah, and since it’s apparently going to get syndicated by p.g.o, it’s a good place to ask: If you are in the GNOME Village and have some free places and are willing to host me, drop me a line. I need that to apply for sponsorship and to, well, have some place to crash at GUADEC :). I can be reached by the comments form or email, mathrick at gmail.com. Unfortunately my ISP is braindamaged and blocks outgoing mail, so mathrick.org is currently out of reach :(.
