Today I rode my bike 75 kilometres and found real ale along the way. I seem to be getting back in shape quickly enough, as I could easily have done 100. I think I'll go one river further west to Pakenham or Almonte or somewhere next week.

Of course being in shape doesn't seem to correlate with reduction in belly size. Woe is me.

The PA-RISC kernel no longer crashes (as much), and I'm able to build fun things like ncurses natively now (though C++ doesn't work right). I think signals are still a wee bit broken though - restarting syscalls seems to work fine, it's just interrupting them that doesn't produce the expected results, at least, if I'm to believe the log messages sysvinit is spewing.

I built dpkg, sysvinit, and a bunch of other good stuff. Floating point is vaguely broken, partly in GCC, partly in glibc, and partly in the kernel, so perl and mawk aren't there yet. Perl will be an interesting test of the dynamic loading support.

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.
