It has been a long time since I've posted. Of that list of projects I wanted to complete, I've finsihed the nsimage which is now in the AOLserver CVS repository.

I'm plan to finish the sql2ps program next.

Thanks to cmiller and in part to the demise of Volaris Online, I've obtained a Ultra SPARC based machine. It is a Sun AXi based machine in a rack mount ATX enclosure with a 440Mhz CPU and 1Gb of RAM. Pretty big upgrade from a 50Mhz supersparc with 32Mb of RAM. Anyhow -- I've completed the transfer from the Sparc 10 yesterday.

Sill taking photos. I want an enlarger now. I was out bid on a Beseler 23C III XL enlarger auction on eBay by five dollars! It seemed to be in mint condition with a Nikkor 50mm enlarging lens to boot. This was my first eBay bid and I've learned to never drink wine near the close of the auction -- you'll fall asleep and get sniped.

Hey! My first diary entry.

Well -- I'm just performing the routine drudgery required by my job. I've dreamed up three projects to liven things up a bit:

  • tclmail -- A tcl based email shell. It is meant to be a MUSH (not TinyMUSH) work-alike. I made some significant progress in this but I have not worked on it in a while.

  • nsimage -- A image information groper module for AOLserver. I've written the framework of the module. It loads and prints funny messages to the error log wen the procedures are called.

    The goal is to have a more general procedure for getting information (size, dimensions, type) about images. Curently, AOLserver has ns_jpegsize and ns_gifsize which requires one to know what kind of image he or she is dealing with before hand. The module I wrote implements the ns_image procedure with will hopefully be able to detect the type of an image and return the it's dimensions.

  • sql2ps -- I once called this erdtool but I found out someone has beaten me to that name. It simply draws an entity relationship diagram using SQL CREATE TABLE statements and commands that describe relationships embeded in comments.

    I wrote a parser for it which worked and the next step was to figure out how to draw the diagram but I've decided to convert the parser to one generated by Lex & Yacc.

    This has slowed me down a bit.

Anyhow -- I'm in the process of getting dedicated Internet access at home and I'll host web pages for each of the projects. The old ones are no longer directly available (although you can still find copies cached by Google).

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.
