New Graphics Card
After putting up with my old GeForce Ti4800 for some time now and given the advent of games like Half Life and Doom 3, I have bought myself a new Galaxy GeForce 6600 GT from Overclockers UK. The most important thing for me is the noise reduction. My current card can be heard from the next room with the doors open and is the only noisy fan in my Shuttle.

Notice Of Marriage
Tuesday my good lady and I visited the local civil registrar to declare our notice of marriage. So now we are all geared up for our big day (which should be) Saturday August 27th. Thankfully, the registrar confirmed for me that everything I have to say will be repeated after her :)

Interestingly, when you declare your intent to marry it is put up on a notice board for 15 days - this is for people to object if they have reason to.

Gossip Transports & GnomeMeeting
Gossip's HEAD branch now has the worst of Micke's and my code since we merged both our branches in on the weekend :)

The transports seem to be shaping up nicely though, hopefully now that it is on HEAD it will get tested more and we can determin problems early ready for 0.9.

Julien PUYDT has also spent a lot of time working on patches to get GnomeMeeting operational via Gossip. Bad timing with the recent merge and everything, but it should get into Gossip sooner or later.

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.
