Hacking:

Well, "this week" for the new gCAD homepage was a bit optimistic, given that my attempted upgrade from RedHat 6.2 to 7.0 managed to trash LILO and my root partition. :^( Note to self: having /home on a seperate partition was A Good Thing(tm); must make sure to use clever partitioning on future systems. Note to Red Hat: "upgrades" that fail to detect a filled disk partition and leave a system unbootable are A Bad Thing(tm).

Life:

Well, no advogato reader has yes taken me up on my offer of free beer and friendship for helping me find that dream free software telecommute job. Maybe I'll have to throw a bottle of Glenfiddich into the deal. :^)

Work:

Some progress on our company computing infrastructure. I got mod_dav set up and tested with Windows Web Folders; now my users can create and upload their own web documents, in Word 2000 (shudder) if necessary. And NTP is working now and happily keeping server time in synch. On to trying to beat HylaFAX into submission, and finally getting Samba and printing set up propely. Oh, and actually do some engineering while I'm at it too.

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!
