Life:

So I finally have moved into another room to the centre of town Kaunas. I have no more access to University's 100Mbit/s network, but got a phone line. So internet now costs... But thanks to telecom, it introduced flatrate this year, so I'm again online! Strange, but with 14400 modem GNOME CVS works much faster and reliable than previously! I am very happy with it. In general, I have much nicer network setup now: a single command pon does everything, thanks to Debian's tools: it launches exim, fetchmail, fetchnews, so I even do not notice how mail/news arrive to me. Actually I launch pon just by clicking on GKrellM. It is a very cool thing: now I use it for ppp status monitoring, watch if there is new mail in ~mail/menesis and adjust volume, control xmms, have a clock, watch free space on disk -- amazing thing.

GNOME:

I have missed all deadlines for translations, so Lithuanian will be half finished in GNOME 1.4 :( Really sad. Updated some translations yesterday, but they won't go into release anyway (i.e. Evolution). Fixed small i18n bugs, changed Makefiles, cleaned up CVS and similar tiny things for Bonobo, encompass, Evolution... Have read a bit of documentation about Bonobo and CORBA. Now have some idea about how it works, but how to write it -- still not enough. Thanks to Open source, there are much examples :)

Mulad: Your Evolution Composer does not work because you do not have GtkHTML Editor component. If you compile from source, add --with-bonobo to ./configure parameters. If use Debian -- install gtkhtml package. If... similarly.

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.
