Older blog entries for mattam (starting at number 1)

Last cigarette of the day reminds me to write a little diary entry to keep things clear. I learned a lot today about logical propositions calculus with my teacher (the man who started active DVI! he was happy I knew about it).

Also talked to some *BSD Zealots for a comparison of features with Linux but they seemed to not know much about the kernel I didn't know (e.g. does it has preemption, how is the latency, what filesystems it supports and so on). They only said that was THE admin's OS, but that the desktop side was nice too. If someone could point me to a detailed comparison i'd like it much (googling didn't help, just flame wars appeared).

Oh and latest(in France) Ally McBeal was one of the funiest I ever seen. One (intermitenly lesbian) woman doing "polyandrism" and another attacking her husband for sexual harassment. Where do americans get those ideas while being supposed to be the most puritans in the world (and the least funny country these times of war) ? I'm pretty happy to see that there is still a big difference between politics and real life having seen that and Bowling for Columbine.

Wow, Advogato has a huge database ! I find it interesting to have such review although there is a size problem (what's the count ?) for newcommers.

Comming to my diary... Well, this is my first diary entry ever so I'm a bit uncertain about how to write it. Anyway, here it goes:

I'm just begining writting an interface for a Genealogy library I developed this summer. I'm really happy with gtkmm & libglademm and hope it will speed up development so my mother can finally switch to an all-free environment and I have a moderately big project ongoing (i'm still a young student, just wanting to make free software ;-). Once this "goal" acomplished i'll probably give my help to other persons in my town wanting to experiment free software too. I don't mean install-parties but going right to a user's home and help him learning a new environment. I wonder if it was already done.

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.
