System Administrator and cheap Python hacker.
Ported DeCSS to Python. ;)
Went to a Windows 2000 Early Adopter seminar yesterday. I'm not likely to ever touch the thing, but the Boss wanted my perspective. I thought "for maximum irony value, I'll take my ancient 486-33/8MB laptop running Debian."
But I was wrong.
Maximum irony value was me winning the business-card drawing for a free 5-day Windows 2000 training and certification course.
Well, whatever. I'll pass it off to the NT admin. In the meantime, I have better things to do. While I was there I started sketching out some design for a pygtk-based DNS file editor. That'll be fun. But before that, we're moving our offices. If you'll excuse me, I have to find a box for my books.
Wait a minute. I used to be an Apprentice... now I'm an Observer, even though my certifications haven't changed. Did I miss something?
Here's a thought -- why do people spend $12 on a new trade-paperback copy of a book, when they could go down to a used bookstore and get a copy for $2?
dammit. The Junkbuster proxy blocks cookies, which breaks Advogato's login tracking. I hate changing my netscape prefs all the time.
Playing with webmail solutions -- I like IMP, but it doesn't seem to particularly like POP3 boxes. the Boss wants address books, though. Too busy doing 'actual work' this week to get any personal coding done so far. blah.
On the upside, though, Virtual Gameboy works great in X, so I can play Pokemon. ;)
crackmonkey wants to reimplement Citadel in Python? I like it. I miss the Good Old Days (tm) of single-line BBSes.
kelly: you're right about the color thing -- perhaps a small [OAJM] marker by the name would be in order?

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.
