Older blog entries for pgmillard (starting at number 2)

Woah, it's been over a week since I updated my diary. <hang head in shame>. Although, that fact alone should be some indication of my busy-ness quotient. Jabber is moving at insane paces some days, and a crawl on others it seems. I've been helping erbo debug the ICQ-Transport, and working on another client. Waiting for JUD to come along to really start seeming some super-cool stuff.

Apparently I'm now working on like 5 projects at once:

  1. My Vantek Software, bug fixes etc.. (Real Work)
  2. Maintain the older 3D-Workshop measurement app. (Real Work)
  3. Work on the ultra-new uber cool measurement app. (Real Work)
  4. Work on the JabberIM client for Webb/Jabber Inc. (Real Work)
  5. Tweak JabberCOM (Open-source)
  6. Work on WinJab (Open-source).
Oh.. I guess that's six, and I think I've worked on them all in the last 3 days for at least 8 hours a piece. Do the math, I know you want to.

Last weekend I worked a Footsteps weekend. So that was mad amounts of guitar playing (3 of us managed to break 14 strings), but tons of fun. It's so nice to do something that completely takes my mind away from work.

Must climb more.. *sigh*

Trying to get the WinJab GUI cleaned up. Battling with design issues, 3D looks, etc. I need some an artist gf who can make cool icons for me :)

Other mundane tasks today like dealing with some guy who's BDE installation is totally fubar'd. No clue what the deal what the deal with that is.

JabberCOM seems really stable. *Knock on Wood*.

Finally doing something here and trying to checkout/use the system. Apparently, I'm still clasified as a schmoe, and can't add myself to any projects :(.

Exchanged my 21" monitor today for one that actually WORKS *WHOOP* The old one was totally blurry, giving me mass headaches. Of course, this probably means I'm going to work even more.

Doing actual work on WinJab and another Jabber client. JabberCOM seems pretty functional, and somewhat bullet- proof so far. Time will tell.

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.
