Yaay! caught up in patches to gnu gift, and in work.

I've sped gift up from 1.9 seconds per image to 1.3 seconds per image, and i still have major changes in my tree to filter upstream.

I've had to do some ugly stuff, like reverse the image in memory, and my next set will be to swap X and Y while storing back into the array, which is still in reverse order.

Optimization is ugly.

My personal tree runs in .85. Concidering i'm not the only person who runs this stuff 160,000 times in an import, i'm proud to be saving people days of their computational time. :)

falling behind in patches, falling behind at work..

it could be worse.

at least no-ones bugging me about it yet.

gosh it's been ages since my last advogato-diary-post. ;)

working for a bank, and a wal-mart contractor. both at once, wheee.

been pushing patches to gnu gift recently, as well as tintin++, and FAI (the fully automatic installer for debian).

linux4tv never shipped any hardware. so, no contest, no nothing. other than that? dead busy.

i hope advogato dosent go away.

Well, a month without a diary, god i'm lazy.

I've got all the hardware to get wireless internet access in my area, unfortunately, my apartment is in just the wrong spot. *sigh*.

look forward to moving, so that i can finally have internet, and be completely lazy in the comfort of home.

I still havent registered for my linux4tv device, or beat on my ide controller. overloaded isnt the word. getting grub, fai, and me all speaking well together is being very painful.

at least my katie packages are now lintian clean, so as soon as i've got my grub/FAI stuff ironed out, its time to take the plunge, and become a debian maintainer.

other than that, i'm supposed to get a new engine for my car any(!) time now. then i've got even more work to do.

busy busy busy.

Things are looking really up, as my water, and gas are back on; phone was turned on and off again, got over zealous at paying old debts off. halfway out. :)

Haven't had time to mess with the IDE bridge or ISA bridge, but I have gotten katie working on my server, ubercool. Now I can treat my personal server exactly like the debian servers, becasue its running the same software.

looking forward to payday on thursday. :)

Yay! found my password!

seriously, things get difficult when you change passwords to a completely random set every month.

hmm. well, updating things, nowadays i'm doing cluster administration, and network grunting. wheee.

Things are looking up, even tho i have no gas, or water, or phone ATM. (just went from 20 hours a week to 50+ with higher pay. waiting on that first paycheck. :)

I've got so much on my to-do list, with an IDE bridge to finish, an ISA bridge to roll, I need to do some major admin work on my boxes(trying to setup katie, the debian archive multi-tool), and things are starting to backlog at work.

but, at least i'm back on advogato. things are looking up. :)

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.
