Hmm... Well I have been codin some simple stuff like I said. Very simple... too little time to have too much fun. Update: I haven't really been working on my friends demo and neither has he really (well he is working on XML parser for the map file which is cool). I have been looking more into OpenGl and made a few simple things like a spinning cube (goal is SHINING spinning cube). I have been messing around with some open source php scripts I found interesting. Webfroot.co.nz made Shoutbox which I put in my friends web page, and modded for my fun. Also played with (forgot the url) b2 blogging scripts also written in php. News blogger that I am gonna start messing with to make my own homepage, which will also have a shoutbox. I spend my time 96% reading, 3% messing around with other peoples stuff, and 1% coding. I notice I was (I think) promoted to apprentice, but I don't feel that I have earned it. Not yet. Another thing I was reading and playing with: Qt. I haven't really decided on Qt yet but I am leaning toward it cuz I want a zaurus, and I would probably want to port my shining spinning cube to that when it's done (I like shining spinning cubes). After I have the shining spinning cube, I am gonna start working on a project my friend gave me and a few people to work on. Well, goals are: 1) have a canvas 2) the canvas must be adjustable in size 3) the canvas is white in color 3) be able to create squares, circles, and triangles on the canvas. 4) these shapes have a black border 5) be able to move the squares, circles, and triangles around the canvas by clicking and dragging. 6) collision detection for all the shapes on the edge of the canvas 7) if a collision is detected, the border of the shape turns red After the cube is done I should be able to do up to step 3 (maybe 4)

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.
