I'm getting close to a workable version of a Ruby Wiki - currently titled RuWiki. There a couple of others that exist already, mostly they're difficult or impossible to install on a site host when all you have access to is the standard web services.

RuWiki is designed for multiple backends - currently the only one is a flatfile. MySQL or PostgreSQL will probably be next. The twist for RuWiki is that you can define different "Projects" which essentially create separate namespaces for Wiki topics. I need to decide on a notation for cross-project notations still...

I decided to start looking for full-time work. I've been working small projects, but that was never the intent of Digikata. I'd like to see something in the Open Source area, but it's more likely that I'd return to my roots in Aerospace Engineering (or Engineering related simulation and modeling).

I'm going to try to keep up at least a once-a-month posting to Advo.

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.
