Went to a concert by Scavengours yesterday. Hairy thrash metal rocks!

Went to a concert by Les Vieilles Salopes yesterday. Old punks rule!

huge: welcome back! :-)

Life

I found a nice tiny place to live in Paris. Not very different from my previous tiny place, except I can expect to see people in the streets after 8pm, and there are restaurants and groceries in the street instead of banks and a Ferrari shop. The posh 16ème was driving me nuts, I'm now moving to the 14ème. The only drawback will be the lack of neighbours with an open WiFi network.

Hacking

Still having fun with libcaca: I added antialiasing routines and support for alpha channel.

I am also working on the Scheme implementation I am maintaining (Elk), currently writing SRFI support. I also started to think about the roadmap to R5RS compliance.

Real world

This is laughable. This is sad. Or maybe it's the contrary.

Muahaha. My latest world domination project: play ASCII Art Doom (and Quake, and Quake2, and Frozen Bubble, etc.). My dithering algorithms are still a lot less powerful than AAlib, but at least I have colour!

Wow, one year and a half without any entry in this public place. I'm still maintaining my private diary, but since people complained I wasn't updating this one, here are some news: I now live in Paris, somewhere between Tour Eiffel and Arc de Triomphe. Cute place. Still haven't got my diploma, but everything should be finished on Tuesday. Ex-gf going out with absolute moron, which should theoretically suck generous amounts of raw eggs, but actually I don't care. Going to ride da world on a snowboard in 2 weeks. ph34r! And if everything goes well I'll start my PhD in less than two months. ph34r t00!

Going to FOSDEM tomorrow. Coding. Drinking beer. Making fun of RMS. Giving my GPG fingerprint to people I'll never ever see again. Drinking beer. Bwahahahaha.

I closed 22 of my Debian bugs tonight. I should be happy, but since some of them were more than one year old I think I probably deserve a kick in the butt instead...

VLC 0.5.0 is out, and it's awesome. Shitloads of new codecs, DVD navigation, support for transcoding, remultiplexing, remulticasting, an UGLY METAL SKIN on OS X (because Steve said metal was good), a thread-safe Mozilla plugin, and it even works under retarded systems like BeOS, Hurd and WinCE. Cool.

Been pretty busy with real life stuff... not much hacking lately :-(

Got the flu. But apart from that, life definitely rocks.

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.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
