The sound of silence

There is a waste-recycling plant near my office that was stopped a few weeks ago. For some strange reasons, one of its two towers *burnt* severely this week-end. The situation is still critical so the authorities have forbidden any car & train traffic around the building. They fear the tower might collapse on a road or on the rails.

Luckily our offices are far enough to be safe, though I'd like to see this if it happened (I can stare at the tower right from my desk :-)

Papers

I finally finished my small paper on reliable C programming techniques. It's really an introduction to what I call "Cleanup Stack Exception Handling" (for lack of a better term), something that is already used by the Symbian OS, but doesn't seem to be well know outside it.

Now, I need to find time to complete my cool little runtime library designed around it. Hopefully the world isn't holding its breath for it :-).

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.
