It'd be interesting if advogato's diary engine allowed replies to entries. Seems like it would fit into the whole theme of "community site for free software developers". Of course, a diary is different from the main articles page, so the owner of the diary should have more control over it. Perhaps the ability to delete postings, or to restrict them to a set of trusted accounts (maybe adapt the site wide trust metric to a personal trust metric by using yourself as the seed instead of the seed accounts).

Enough rambling about that. But life sucks anyway, and I don't feel like elaborating on that in public.

I discovered advogato today (or possibly yesterday, depending on the time zone it uses). Looks great!
On other subjects, I've been working on porting the song Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious to UNIX, ie. by changing the choruses to things like: "sudo cal egrep vi regexp ps chmod fsck". Of course, every one of the 8 occurances of Supercal... will be replaced by a different string of commands, so this is just a bit non-trivial. OTOH, it would be pretty cool if each of those lines was an actual command. But the only way I can see that working is if literally every other word is |. This seems like a pretty obvious idea, but I haven't found any references to it. If you've seen this done before, please tell me (does advogato have my email on my page? I guess I'll put it in my Notes secion if not).

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.
