I think Ben Hammersley said it best
Robin Cook made an excellent speech in the House of Commons last night to announce his resignation from Tony Blair's cabinet. This has sparked a wave of similar resignations, but from no other big names. Clare Short has decided to keep her hypocritical power-grubbing mitts in power.
walters: You can post diaries with xml-rpc; see http://www.advogato.org/xmlrpc.html for more details. I guess a quicky chunk of python to just write a webpage and then fire the same chunk of diary to advogato would be pretty easy...
I'm a gibbering wreck. It's not often that I get shocked speachless but receiving a mail into my inbox with the title "Invitation of Commit Access from the HTTP Server Project" has pretty much done it!
Ugh. too much work, and too much hangover.
(Oh, and a totally incompetent hardware supplier)
So what I'd love to do at this point is just to leave until everything was sorted out to the point where I can do the stuff I need to, but instead it looks like I'm going to be working pretty much every day next week excluding xmas day itself. fun fun.
Been bouncing ideas for a decent task tracking system; accessable from multiple computers via different mediums, ie web/rss/xml-rpc. I've not found anything that does something remotely like this, and it's something that i badly need. It especially needs to be able to have multiple task streams.
Also looking at porting gtetrinet to OS X natively, rather than getting my fix from the gtk version running in XDarwin.
The other thing I want to do is fix up a system for allowing Apache's Include directive to ignore certain file patterns in a runtime configurable way.
I need to write (and I can't believe no-one has done this in a way that works correctly) a module for apache that limits concurrent connections. throttle claims to do it, but watching its output there appears to be no relation between its behaviour and the output in server-status. Also, throttle bumps the load average by a couple of orders of magnitude. Which is a problem.
Oh, and having something other than basic authentication for mod_auth_pam would be nice. And easier than the other problem...
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.
