It's amazing how much your coding style can develop over the years.

I've just dug up an old streaming Quicktime project I was working on a few years ago, and my god, the code's *so* freaking messy. I quite distinctly remember thinking how well I was structuring everything at the time, too.

Guess its what happens when you leave things on the backburner too long ;-)

So, I get into work this morning, planning on a productive day, and I find my machine's rebooted into XP (I normally run Sid), and it's locked up solid.

Turn it off, turn it on again, and the damn thing won't turn on.

Took out my Linux hard drive, with all my important bits on it, and it doesn't appear to be working at all in another machine (i.e. BIOS doesn't pick it up).

Ack ;-( I hope I can recover information off it, otherwise it's the third or fourth hard drive I've lost mysterously in the past few months, losing valuable work.

And I normally keep backups by rsync'ing to my laptop before I leave, but I'm currently without one at the moment because I just sold my Powerbook G4/500, and I'm waiting for my new one (G4/1250).

Arg. Somebody up there hates me ;-(

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.
