All of the below is obviously very out-of-date.
I will bring it in sync with the rest of spacetime very soon.

IBM has agreed to sponsor BOSS, and to join the panel. That's great news -- it should increase again the event's visibility, and allow us to attract still more mainstream attention.

Now if only that other large corporation -- let's call them "Sybil" -- would come on side. We shall see. Stay tuned.

The Business of Open Source Software conference (BOSS) will take place on Sunday, November 25 at the auditorium of the Ottawa Public Library, Main Branch, from 1:00PM to 4:00PM.

The Business of Open Source Software conference (BOSS) proceeds apace. I just added a lot of relevant information to the project page.

The team members organizing The Business of Open Source Software symposium may now affiliate themselves with the project BOSS.

Stay tuned for more.

It's Official-- dyork is becoming a Canadian. He may already be one. Curling! Holy Jazes, Dan! I've been a Canadian all my life, and I have yet to even step into a curling rink. This is like The Body Snatchers or something. What's next? ``zed''? Decent beer? Road hockey? Responsible Government?

Welcome, Dan. We're a little odd, but we make our own fun ;)

and nothing else. What's happening, Dan?

Over at OPAG (the Ottawa Python Authors Group), we're mulling over the idea of developing a console-based PIM (personal information manager). I'm wondering if there's a demand for such a program. If you're reading this, let me know.

On a mildy-related note, if someone could drop me a line to explain how to use the wiki tag, get in touch. zeevon, are you reading this? ;-)

Finally, is it only I, or are other people seeing advogato refuse to respond increasingly often? Heading to the site, following internal links and reloading pages here often seem to result in... well, nothing. It no talk. I put it down initially to other things, but I begin to think it's the advogato site.

Well, I haven't seen nothing, but response times are often very slow, particularly, in my experience, logging in, previewing, and posting.

Thanks, zeevon, for letting me know that I've been certified as an apprentice.

I've just created a new project page for The Ottawa Python Authors Group, OPAG. dyork is also (at least) a contributor. The home page I listed on the project page is not live yet; it should be in a week's time.

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!
