Well, it's time to do my annual Advogato entry.

What have I been up to?

  • Finished the main part of my undergraduate Science degree, majoring in Computer Science and History & Philosophy of Science
  • Started an Honours year in History & Philosophy of Science
  • Learned a lot about Trusted/Trustworthy Computing (NGSCB and the TCG specs) for my Honours thesis
  • Did some updates to my site liedra.net
  • Started a cutesy animal blog at zenkey.org (currently on holiday until I finish uni demands for the semester)
  • Made a bunch of new friends both at uni and outside
  • Racked up another year working for freshmeat (best job I've ever had)
  • dropped off the first hit on images.google for "sexy goth" (still no. 2 though!) which is pretty good considering I'm not actually a goth ;P
  • Doing some PHP programming for my aunt and an old workmate of mine as well as some random other bits and pieces
  • Doing some random contracty work putting together Linux boxen for my old work
  • Got a gym membership and have been doing "Body Balance" classes each week (mostly) and cardio too (which is good because since becoming a uni bum and living at home again on a good 3 square meals has made me lazy and put on weight :-)
  • Got my green P's (NSW drivers license) which I'll have for another 2 years
  • Had my 23rd birthday
  • Upgraded my tibook to Panther
  • Adopted a snake (a coastal carpet python)
  • Took a photography course
So there you go! See you next year! ;-)

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.
