ApacheCon was a success, even if the plot didn't go as planned for the WinNT/Security presentation (need to generate an entire set of side-by-sides to follow this mess called the Win2000 GUI shell.)

Douglas Adams was as entertaining as anyone could hope, and made for a great evening of sitting in an auditorium for yet another hour at the end of the day.

Now I can truly state I've met nearly everyone I've certified, although I've certified them by their works, not their faces. highgeek, get search working on the list archives so certification bumps up to master :-)]

And now that 1.3.14/Win32 binaries are out the door (correctly, this time) it's off to the last three fixes of the 1.3 tree and onto 2.0. London was ... incredible

SF was productive, Apache found agreement on filtering! Not only did I meet gstein, manoj managed to get me to SFO with 3.5 minutes to spare, plus had the chance to meet/dine with a great group of the IBM and Covalent teams, plus assorted players from other groups (SGI, C2Net and more).

Then a week in Wyoming and almost three weeks back here. Seems more like three months. Wrapping the security presentation for ApacheCon has me tied up completely. Then jumping back into Covalent and Apache work full time will keep me very occupied.

One good thing, my DSL is finally here... and should soon be suplimented with the new family webpage. Passed on the FTP access to Dad, so he can begin posting years of geneological research on our rowe-clan.net site. Nothing there yet, so don't bother for a while yet.

hacking... when I aught to be sleeping :(

Four executive summaries for a new project before Noon tommorow, and then to Nashville... time to table these mod_isapi thoughts. Everything looks like it's hopping for Apache 1.3.13 to roll, and 2.0 looms large. Win32 victims rejoice :) ... actually, the NetWare patches almost make me want to toss it up on a backup NT5 server.

Hoping to meet gstein and the rest of the SF crew in two weeks... I hope a one day cabal in SF on Apache 2.0 filtering issues can pound them out, we finally agree to disagree... and implement!

Lots to write, no time to be wasting, but what the heck, this is a little cathartic.

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.
