Haven't written in here for a while now.

  • Degree - I got a 3rd. I am generally happy with this, I was afraid I'd do better. For my project, I think I got a 2:1, and I got a 2:2 for the recent exams, it was the 1st semester exams that pulled me down. But an honours degree is an honours degree, so I'm happy. :)
  • Rendering of Indic Scripts - made quite a bit of progress here, I've started a Bengali renderer based on the Devanagari renderer. This has some new and interesting issues to deal with (in particular, characters that map to two glyphs, which occur on either side of another character). After this is working, I'll pull the common code into a library and make renderers for all the other Indic scripts (apart from Tibetan, which still looks very scary).

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
