Seems to be all the rage to be modest about your certification. Alas the descriptions are a little vague. Do I earn a journeyer certification ? I'm the primary author of a project I consider useful, and I hack on another, and then I have lots of bits and pieces. Am I a competent programmer ? I don't know.

The fact is rather a large number of certifications on Advogato are phony. I'm not sure it really matters though.

Got a dressing-down from wli about my thoroughly absent knowledge of basic maths (in particular algorthmic analysis of generative functions, apparently). Well deserved, but I don't really know what I can do about it: I'm rather long in the tooth (as is my TODO list).

What books should I be reading ?

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!
