Thursday: One of the worst days I've had in a long time and one of the busiest (anybody would think that I link those things together :o) Had 3 of the Stratus HP-UX boxes collected, took about 3 hours trying to work out which ones they were and then an age trying to navigate them out of server rooms (who the hell put them right at the back).

I think the I.T. manager may be reading my diary, today he removed everyones access to the server room except mine and refused to restore it until it was tidy, spent 6 hours trying to chase cables.

Buggered my laptop for the second time this week, decided that having DevFS mounted over the top of my old /dev was untidy so I moved /dev and rebooted, then realised that I hadn't created a /dev folder to mount DevFS in, trawled freshmeat looking for a rescue disk that could handle ReiserFS (may I recommend Recovery Is Possible), 5 minutes later, presto.

Keep being nagged about project slipage, so many things to try and keep on top of atm.

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.
