Long time no entry. Busy with work. However did do some hacking on GNUe Forms. Jamest also has really started to bust butt on it and its coming along nicely.

We got some real feedback from a non-developer that was encouraging. Oh so nice. The mailing list has been somewhat dead. Whether people are sick of the project or just busy is unknown. Though we still seem to have people following the list.

More as it comes.

Seems my diary is always a day behind. : ) Since I can't edit past entries. Got some personal work done yesterday as well as a little more CVS house cleaning and docbook fun.

Have submitted the XSLT vs. Jade debate to all pertinent mailing lists. So far only Carlos has responded.

This morning got jForms checked into CVS for Ian. Hopefully he will see it. : )

Yesterday had a kick butt free software day, GNUe day and CVS day. Hopefully today I will be able to continue forward with that momentum. Reinhard popped me a gnome-db patch so that is good news! I will try it when I get back from church. Hopefully I will find jamest online sometime today.

Well I have not been good about writing in here lately.

I am going through Andru's proposal and looking to get it into the template. I updated the template w/ hgebel's suggestions and have started to move forward on my PO proposal. Though its old and I know will get serious flames even from myself. : ) Its better than nothing sitting out there.

Must download libgda and get working along with starting to help senor jamest do some gnue forms hacking. Just trying to get all my duckies in a row. : )

Might get more hacking time for a bit and might have new party interested in our consulting services to help the funding of GNUe.

Seriously considering taking advantage of Jonas' offer to sit in FSF booth in Atlanta and hand out GNUe literature. During this PR laden discussion we discussed the possiblity of GNUe gear at least for developers. :-)

Last night I got off my butt and actually compiled balsa from cvs. A little configure magic and viola a working email client that <gasp> sends and receives pop mail.

Next mission. Move to IMAP mail. Mission after that move my mail to own host . : )

Got new developer's guide up and site mildly updated. Still have a ton of work to do on it. As well as work for local soccer club site and some other side work.

Vacation was great. The beach was near perfect. Only problem is the stay was too short.

On vacation. Long day driving (6+ hours) from Arizona to San Diego yesterday. No online time. Spent AM getting caught up on all emails. :) Yeah!!! Brief online time right now. Will probably get some more tonight or tomorrow.

This was a much needed breather. :) Hope to get things back on track next week. I have A LOT going on, but heck aint that what hacking all about?

Been a long time. Stuff is going great with gnome-db. I need to get around to doing report proposal. I have a holiday coming up and plan to get caught up.

My project at work is about at its peak. However, it looks like I may have volunteered myself for more than I am willing to chew. It will be great experience and hopefully I can give some of it back to the community. If those lawyers allow it. : )

Short on time. Long on ideas. Adios.

GNUe is getting big. : ) However, that means harder to keep up with. : ( Missed jamest by a few minutes on Friday so dont where things sit although I imagine not all that great as I didnt see any cvs mail come across the wire.

Might make question as to whether to move CVS to our servers and get bonsai and lxr installed on the repository. Also, probably need to institute bugzilla, gnats or one of the other bug tracking systems at some point.

Have lots on my mind but no definite task list, which is bad for me. I do much better with direct mission other ways I skate around unproductive as there seems to be an overwhelming feeling which would rather be avoided than embraced...

So many things so little time.....

Well the BDAY is here... Whooo HOOO... NOT!

Been having computer withdrawls.. Less than an hour a day will do that to me. Hope to get some work done this weekend. As I will be swamped all next week with real work. : (

Strategic training is over... It was very good learned some principles I can apply to free software projects. Also, allows me to align my strategy for working on government agencies to use free software. : )

I think this may become my mission in life. To get local government to use free software tools and solutions. Please give me wish and luck.

LONG time no entry. Been VERY busy with project at work. Plus Wednesday through Tomorrow I have been in strategic planning meetings. Very interesting stuff. I have taken quite the interest in the business side of the fence. I think more programmers need to understand their customers to better serve them.

Tomorrow I turn a whopping 26 years old. Wow, how time flies I can not believe it. Finally got v0.0.1 of proposal template done, but not on web site yet. I also go tarball of v0.0.1 of gnue forms bundled. Ian gave me source for jforms, but still need to handle getting in cvs and to the web.

Andru @ Treshna has been busy. Wish I had more time to focus on what is going on there and with Gnome-DB. I trust their judgement and am sure things are going well though. : ) Learning some interesting stuff at good ole strategic training, but I suppose sharing here would get me in trouble with some. : ) Muhahaha...

Jamest should be off tomorrow and get some serious work done. YEAH!!! I am jamming along on the PO module stuff. Just waiting for table defs we created a while ago that have been mis placed and then I am off to the races... yippie....

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.
