att. conservation notice: first diary, c.s. student, unix sys.adm.

work: nothing much interesting to say here, I work as (part-time) system administrator for a small web-enabled company, where I am the local *nix guru, Perl hacker and geek in general. Good job, nice people and good perks, and I just got green light to move our servers to Debian (they are being reorganized).

edu: computer science major, with a minor in math., trying to prepare for exam (T-7days and counting). C.S. is generally a full of cool things for me to learn, but there are some really boring things too, for example creating SLR-parse tables by hand :-(.

programming: hmm. . . I did some Windows programming yesterday, needed to somehow get a list of existing drives. It seems one cannot do this, so you have to do something like,

  for(int i=1; i<26; ++i)
    if(_cdrive(i))
      printf("%c exists, whee!\n", 'A' + i - 1);
hackish, to say the least, imho.

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.
