This isn't my best week.

Monday night, a lightning storm took out my DSL, it was finally repaired late yesterday afternoon.

And now I'm sicker than a dog. Some funky lung crud that kept me from sleeping hardly at all last night. I think I passed out between coughing spams because the clock was incrementing by hours instead of minutes.

On the other side of things, 3 days sans internet helped me read (or re-read) the following books:

  • Expert C Programming by Peter van der Linden
  • POSIX Programmer's Guide from O'Reilly
  • Using and Porting Gnu CC by rms
  • Practical C++ Programming (don't ask why...)

But I didn't get very much code written. I watched a lot of Perry Mason, though.

I guess Nyquil and I will be intimate friends this weekend. Hopefully it's gone by Monday.

cruddy human beings and their illnesses.

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!
