It's been a while, Advogato.

Wow, ncm and redi are still around!

This proclus person is annoying. Seriously man, how do you find time to blog like five times a day or something?

I'm writing this little game. In a startling departure from my usual modus codandi, I decided to give this newfangled C++ thing a spin. Now I'm happily writing code that looks like this:

sprite_queue<falling_label, gl_vertex_array_texuv_color, MAX_BOMBS, FALLING_LABEL_TTL> falling_labels;

Different language, but I still feel that I'm essentially banging at the keyboard at random until I arrive at something that compiles. Plus ├ža change...

I'm trying to improve my English. I'd like to understand why "she told me something" is allowed, but "she explained me something" makes native English speakers emit a parse error. Does anyone out there know where I can get a BNF for English?

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.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
