Dust In The Wind (And The Fan In Its Way)

The desktop PC at home did random reboots under FreeBSD, and gave a nice blue screen saying that IRQ_LESS_THAN_OR_EQUAL didn't hold ---or something like that--- if I tried to boot Windows XP.

It turned out the CPU fan had so much dust that stopped working. The computer lives in a normal room and has just a few months, but it seems this Athlon XP 1700 has a fan that needs almost monthly cleaning.


Among other things I am reading the woven source of GNU libavl, a real pleasure.


Following the trend of my recent immersion into literate programming I plan to completely rewrite MyAdvogato to make it a literate CGI, surely using noweb. Besides, pipelining and optional hiding of diary entries in recentlog below a user defined threshold are things to be added in the next release.

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.
