Older blog entries for Szilva (starting at number 2)

Just a horrible headache for the weekend, the obvoius result of hard work during the week. Unfortunatelly no so much time for "pet projects".

Well, the Perforce WebKeeper is a bit old, the apache API is obsolete, it took me a while to fire it up. Anyway other groups are also thinking on similar stuff ie at CodeSourcery.

Further investigation of apache API. I really hope I will have spare time to do something useful though due to the KeepAlive thing it seems more tougher than I thought for first sight.

Furthermore it would be very useful to make a web-based bug-tracking system for Perforce. You can guess my company is using it as primary revison control system. It is good, but I need a web TODO-list like thing that is linked to Perforce and can be used my less-shell-oriented colleagues to track jobs. Anyway I would prefer the web interface also.

Just started to build a project that can take over file descriptors from the main apache server process to reduce overhead when somebody is downloading a long file. Well, after reading half of this book, my friend (who originally asked me to make this module) noted on IRC that the module he needs should be built for roxen/caudium not to apache. That's about my project management skills...

By the end of the day the module would be good for both of the servers. Maybe I will read the Pike introduction (means: maybe not - but this option will have a result of some free beer shortage). Should not be so far from C/C++ . Though after Perl I have a strong aversion from all the interpreteted languages that are not bashing. #!/bin/bash I mean.

BTW the aforementioned book is a good example for something that started to be good, but screewed up right in the middle. I think more weitgh on C should be advicable.

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!
