For Debian, I work on the boot-floppies and web pages and maintain the cdcd and libcdaudio packages. I am planning to package greg and mathopd.

Committed a patch to change the colorization of the Debian website translation statistics.

Yesterday I went to see Millencolin, Longfellow, and Osker at the Glass House. Went in the pit a few times, but had to keep coming out to retie my shoes. I really need to buy boots, as Vans just aren't cutting it anymore. One month until Against All Authority comes to town.

The day before I went to Magic Mountain. It was the first time I'd been midweek and the lines were substantially shorter. Yippee!

Updated the host name checking code in the boot-floppies to look for RFC 1035 compliance (the only difference is that the names can be longer). I've heard rumors that there is a WIP specification which features non-ASCII characters, but I haven't been able to find it. If you know what it is, please let me know.

Submitted some minor fixes to GnuCash to fix a date entry problem and some documentation irritations.

Created a new Debian cdcd package, updating config.{guess,sub} so that it will (hopefully) build on hppa. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to sneak FTP past my ISP's firewall, so I'll have to use sneakernet to upload it tomorrow.

Submitted a patch to fix bug #105364. With it, only RFC 608 compliant names will be accepted. I'd have committed it but I can't figure out how to sneak SSH past the firewall either.

Fixed a segfault in the boot-floppies ``Report a Problem'' step.

Added the ability to assign variables in the export and readonly builtins for the Minix shell included with BusyBox.

Made an ass of myself by misreading the dependencies of GnuCash.

Redirected email forwarding to the Los Angeles Free-Net. I'm now ready to cancel my old ISP. I'm so glad I have a permanent (or so I hope) forwarding service, so that when my ISP does something bad like switching to a different POP provider (with no local POPs) I don't have any qualms about switching.

Fixed a bug in BusyBox tar in which it segfaulted if BUFSIZ was too small (i.e., less than 512).
