"I'm back and I'm ringing a bell, I'm rocking on the mike while the fly girls yell..."

Been a while since I've posted here. I'm graduated, married, and a bit smarter than I was the last time I posted. Amazing how much one grows up in a couple of years. Anyways, my new "passion" is python, and I'm writing my research project in grad school using this magnificent tool.

Whew... one more semester down ~3 more to go... I think I've sold out. Being as I no longer use Linux (I use FreeBSD), I wonder if I'm even "relevant". Anyways, watch this space.

Hello world again! There has been quite a time laspe between my current and last posts, for which I apologize, but my life is finally starting to straighten out. I recently quit working at

Busily creating specs and test for my project at work, the "Digital Music Machine". Had an interesting conversation about the environment with eskil, mjs, and others on #nautilus.

Playing with ogg vorbis a lot lately (on recommendation from raph). It's a way cool format and an xmms plugin is available for decoding vorbis streams. All I can say is "Look out Fraunhofer, Vorbis will be eating your lunch soon."

Other than that, I'm going through an interesting time of my life. I'm not really sure where I'm going, but I'm pretty damn excited to be going there. Work is enjoyable, my finances _could_ be in better shape, and my GPA's a little low for my tastes, but I have confidence that things are on the right track.


Ahh... progress is nice. After banging my head against a brick wall for about a week contemplating the best way to tackle the caching issue in librsvg, I think I've finally figured out the "best" solution. Talked with raph a couple of nights ago about stuff. He's an interesting dude.

Peace out to all my homies at eazel


Oh, by the way, there's a kid named Carbamide learning to code C knockin' around on the #gnome and #nautilus channels. Please help him out if he's stuck.

First Post :)

Talked with raph about font stuff today.

Eskil goaded me into getting an advogato acct.

I'm tired and weary. Nite all.

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.
