Me, oh i'm a Geek born and bred!
Back at school again, preparing for exams which take place over the coming weeks.
No luck still on the Debian Planet front the server is still down. But I spent most of last night beavering away at doing some development of the new site. Python is a really marvelous language and I try and use it for all my development, however, i'm not sure it is the most ideal thing. Having to implement sessions/cookie management etc myself feels such a bore. However I did enjoy coding a little SQL wrapper to help make replication work and writing a little templating system. Of course its nothing great as i'm not a great coder. But it does the job and certainly scratches my itch. Does anyone have any favourite Python based web development systems, Zope is nice and powerful but rather overwhelming, the guys at Twisted have amazing ideas, but maybe the solution is not mature enough.
Arrgh, the Debian Planet server has gone to pot, not really sure why, but from what I know, people i've talked to suspect drive failure. Hopefully not all is lost as the system has a RAID configuration. So hopefully the mirror should be able to be restored. Its been down for a while as no one has really been available to go fix it. :(
I've spent doing family things but also hacking on the Debian Planet code. The development language is Python and this is a complete and utter "start-from-scratch-and-prey-it-works" (tm) approach. An approach i'm famous for starting and never finishing.

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.
