Just landed, looks nice...
Just had two weeks 'holiday' after leaving my old programming/come monkey job, and what have I been doing before I start my new programming job, yep, coding, but coding cool stuff, and for fun. With the little I've slept it feels like I've had about a month off! (highly recommend it, if that's what flicks your switch though)
Today I've have been mostly coding my Perl sideways 'shoot'em up' example for the SDL Perl bindings. Many thanks to The Corruptor for supplying top quality graphics, yet again. I did manage to butcher some old ones I had laying around, sorry. Spent about 8 hrs coding so far, it's not quite there yet, no collsiion detection, should have knocked that out by about 2am-ish, I hope, must be up and about before the crack of noon tommorow, flat hunting and then of to Brighton for steak and beer...shlurp.
Uploaded development version of SDL-Perl, in which I added new features to support the shooter, and beyond, most notably was 'poly-finger' keypress support, and basic joystick support, cant test it though, linux driver not playing fair, doh.
Must dash, thinking much perl...ahhhhh

have fun and learn...

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.
