Not much coding during vacation.

I did trials to rewrite the routine that fetches pages from Advogato in MyAdvogato to use a persistent connection. The CGI downloads two pages usually, the one to be wrapped and the personal page of the user to extract the necessary data, and currently closes explicitly each connection for several reasons. It turned out that there was almost no difference in time, it seems to be dominated by the download of the pages, at least behind this dial-up connection. I don't know whether I'll change the original routine.

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.
