Gods, chiropractors are rip-off merchants. $37 visits, and they expected me to sign up for 15 visits, which will be all of 5 minutes long each. All to adjust my spinal position, which I can do myself, now I've seen the X-ray pictures.

Heh. Who do they think they are... software consultants? Anyway, have swapped chairs, put my monitor on top of two minitower cases (sideways... no, not the monitor, the cases!) and now I'm a lot happier. Still have to drag in my wristwrest, to improve the situation further, but things are now fairly ergonomic at work. Have to fix the home situation, though.

And oh, yeah, skud, if you're reading, Bloody Caesars do sound good. :) Clams are yummy. Going to have to see if I can find some clam juice, now.

Random subject change... Network byte ordering. People always forget to put things in network byte order before streaming data. If you're doing network transfer of data, do it in network order, damnit. Bah.

Hohum. Looks like I got certified..., and a couple from people I don't know at all. They've probably seen me in various Usenet fora or something.

Guess I should write an article or two now. Come to think of it, I've got some half-baked ones kicking around that I should revamp and post. Hrm. Sometime soon.

Well, I finally signed myself up for Advogato. Who knows whether anyone cares. :) Ook.

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!
