Work

Left teaching and now working in a web-based startup (ok, yawn) - codix.net - as far as I know, one of the few free software companies in the UK (free software in the sense that almost everything we do is either Linux/BSD based, and that we're gradually releasing all our main in-house tools under gpl). Definitely a good move; such a relief not to be dreading work in the mornings...

Software

Thought I should somehow justify my apprentice status; released a little bunch of perl scripts first (cos someone asked for them), now working on some retro PAL design software for gEDA. Releasing stuff makes you incredibly aware of how terrible your code can be...
Hoping to go to the annual Chaos Computer Conference, to talk about Open Collector and related things, but somehow have to find transport from Oporto (where my in-laws live) to Berlin and back just after Christmas... Anybody else going from Oporto?

Personal

My kids now both left home... Absolutely wierd. Seems parents depend on their kids more than the other way round..

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.
