Hello. I am not well known in the world of software libre. I have not released much of my own code unto the wild, although there was once a free binary program called listread (I think) that bore my name and parsed Big Boy's BBS list. Sadly, BBSs were dying when I released this poor pascal program upon the populace. I don't think it spread very far. I have been programming for my own entertainment for much of my life, and feel myself to be relatively accomplished and to understand the art well. Of late, my interests have turned to Lincity (which I have hacked on privately for a few years, turning public now). I have recently stepped in to help the effort at I don't think everyone has forgotten Lincity yet. So, upon entering the bazaar I am now advertising. I may not be sufficiently well known to be certified anything, but I feel I am worthy of an account at this noble establishment.

Recent blog entries by immunizer

Not quite as productive a three day weekend as I had hoped, but power animates again. The new mouse handler is better fleshed out in my head, but maybe it should wait for after the upcoming release (rsn :)

The first part of a general dialog box is done. It refreshes itself nicely on the screen, and accepts as many buttons or lines as you want. First time I've used va_arg() et al. Once I figure out how to best handle input for it I can replace calls to the old dialog boxes and hopefully close one of the more severe bugs.

I think I figured out a nice clean fix for the age old mouse droppings bug. Seems like it was just painting a stale buffer on the screen, so I added a flag for freshness. Other than that, I've been busy planning for the next big enhancement to the simulator (read: not really working).

Mucked around in the select_button code a bit. Need some work here. Got it to refresh the current item and cost consistantly - don't think I broke anything else.

Think I have a fix for dialogue boxes getting ignored, but it requires rewriting the mouse handler. Really, dialogue boxes are a convenient excuse to refactor that monstrosity, but they could use a bit of help too. Of course, they still need to be able to refresh themselves.

It's 3 in the morning, the web page is fresh, and it's time to give in to the night. The start of a 3-day is fresh in my mind, giving me plenty of time to rewrite.

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.
