Books
Went to the school library today and was surprised by the extent of Comp Sci books they have available. I wish I had a few days where I could just sit up there and read. I checked out 2 books by Knuth and a Java Swing book.

Native Qt for Windows
kde-cygwin.sf.net's port has been moving along quickly. I found out the hard way that qt can't be compiled with bison, but must us byacc as the yacc-replacement. I've only been following along via anonymous CVS and the mailing list, but I hope to help out in the future.

School
Classes are actually interesting: Cell Biology, Religion (Biblical Foundations), Software Engineering, Spanish Lit (not very interesting yet), Psychology (not sure about the interest-factor yet).

Work
Haven't been able to access anything I need to which is okay I guess, since I don't have much to do

CSX
We hope to kick off CSX for 2nd semester soon. Game programming group will probably start this week. Fun, but time-consuming (and frustrating to get all the sprites aligned right...)

BEEJ
My Boolean Expression Editor for Java has been coming along nicely. Still have quite a bit to do, but I'm beginning to see how I'll be able to use it for the search interface for my Java app

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!
