Did some C programming today, which I haven't done in quite a while. First run at a small CGI program to interface with the Webware application server -- hopefully being in C it will start up considerably faster than the Python-based version. C is awkward, but I actually quite enjoyed it -- dealing with pointers and such is refreshing, and I haven't programmed in anything but Python (and a little PHP) for many months. Heck, I hardly even program shell scripts anymore... that'll get a person stuck in a conceptual rut.

But I'll be back to Python tomorrow, I imagine.

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!
