Work

Work never ends. But I suppose that's a good thing. I'm currently plugging away on my tools for Compudigm and having a lot of fun doing it.

Studies

Group Theory is actually quite difficult. Not so much in the material that it covers but in the precision it requires. I'm always catching myself going a*b*c = b*a*c = b*(a*c) = b*n only to remember 2 hours later that the group isn't Abelian! Though a lot of people would write off group theory as useless theoretical rubbish I'm finding it very useful. The rigour it forces me to use with my logic really cleans up my programming

Open-Source

Nautilus just gets better and better. Not a day goes by that I don't use it. If only I was more of a programmer and could add a CVS view and a smb:// module for gnome-vfs. Then it would be truly useful. No work on LyX unfortunately, too much paid work to do.

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!
