File-Sharing in Israel

Talash has written an excellent blog entry about activity for protecting File-Sharing in Israel. He gives links, information and points to where money can be sent and help can be offered. I should note that I also wrote about it back in June (search for "Countering").

I already sent them an E-mail offering my help. Please help spread the word.

New Job and W2L

I blogged about my new job and about the Israeli Welcome-to-Linux series in Linmagazine. (in Hebrew). In English, I can say that I finally found a work: I'm working from home for an hourly pay for a small consulting/contracting firm. It's Perl/Web/SQL. I'm happy that I now have some steady income, and the work is quite interesting, and I'm learning new concepts and Perl/Apache/SQL/Linux technologies.

I also cover the beginning of the Israeli Welcome-to-Linux series, what I did so far and what remains to be done. We need a lot of help so if you're Israeli, and have some spare time, feel free to volunteer.

The comments there are pretty useless. In one sub-thread a few anonymous people told me that the Jerusalem Linux Club, should be called "JLC" for short, instead of "Jerux". And a few people were somewhat sarcastic about the fact I will now have less time to spend on open-source activities and have less free time.

Advogato Weblog Spam

Seem's like kooler's personal page contains a lot of links to various commercial sites. Now, since he certified a few people (including me), he is linked from their personal Advogato pages, and as a result actually acquires some Google Page rank. Someone in charge should make sure all external links in Advogato have the rel="nofollow" attribute before the problem gets worse.


I have plenty of issues to blog about besides those, but these are the most important topics. So until next time: have fun, hack on and stay cool!

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!
