There seems to be a bug in mod_virgule's handling of URLs on project pages, see the homepage link for WvStreams. The ? character is turned into a ridiculously long representation of 0.0

oops, just noticed ncm pinged me way back in February. I've been very busy leaving one job, having a month of holidays, and starting a new job, but have something FOSS-related to post here finally! :) But it will have to wait until I'm home tonight.

Have I missed the boat on the 5 titbits meme?

I leave my job on friday, so I'll start hacking on GCC again on saturday - hooray. I'll start with some of the shared_ptr extensions from N2232. C++0x is going to kick ass.

spammers: dophine erenter

The Man still won't let me work on GCC and I've barely touched any other open source code ... which might have contributed to my lack of enthusiasm for any programming recently. I'm no longer prepared to work for a company that won't let me work on whatever I want in my free time.

slef, I don't know about the business banking, but HSBC's personal banking works fine. HSBC's shitty credit card website only works in Internet Explorer though - not even in Firefox on Windows. This from a site that claims to offer "Full online account servicing"

damn, robogato's quick at fixing things! I, for one, welcome our new robots.net master

Yes, since the recent site update all projects have vanished and I also see that diaries still appear on recentlog after a user account has been marked as spam and deleted (see e.g. phpgurru's diary entry below - not 100% certain phpgurru was a spammer btw, people might have been a bit triggerhappy there!)

As ncm mentioned, multithreading in C++ seems to be going in the right direction, though I've not had time to follow it in the last 2-3 months. There are also very cool things like variadic templates coming. I hope I'll be contributing to libstdc++ again before all the interesting new work is done!

Nice work on the new features, robogato! Thank you.

If anyone wants to test the spam rating feature, eastshore4jon is a spammer of some kind, and so is every user they've cert'd and been cert'd by, they're all part of a failed attempt to beat the trust system. linkman and balls are definite spammers too, along with their "friends" JH, Moor, Grad etc. Unleash your spam flags, advogatans!

The only change I don't like so far is replacing "diary" with "blog" ... but I can live with it.

Update: hoorah! eastshore4jon is deleted - start from necromnium instead if you want to flag that ring of fake accounts as spam. Update: another piece of the ring has disappeared - start at Dreamwielder instead, or alphajrr, or shinobi44 or Hak or Blink or Bill1 or Ball, Doomer, Spacewalker Akira01, 0dragoon0, browniephae, crucio, deadeye2004, Dreamrender, gabby2010, homiekun, jquchiha

not many left now: Hazardouskid Naruto9486 narutofreak2 pojun666 rhox Robin7 Tib

lloydwood, the activity stats come from downloads and webpage views, as well as commits and bug/request/support updates - so if you have lots of users it doesn't necessarily matter how often you update it. While I agree it's a lot more than half, PStreams is very quiet, but not dead, and is in the 89th percentile, so let's say 88% are dead :-)

The end of Advogato?

Like many others, I don't blog anywhere else (I barely write anything here!) and have always enjoyed advogato's recentlog. I've found it very educational, entertaining, and a great way to learn about lots of projects that I would never have actively sought out. I would be very sorry to see this site go - for years it's been the first website I visit when surfing. As for the minimal interface, I've always thought it's perfect -- the content has always been more important.

Thanks to raph and to everyone who's ever posted something that I found interesting. It's been a fantastic demonstration of the trust metric and a fantastic resource for free software developers and evangelists. I hope it will continue to be.

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.
