infodragon: You may want to look at either GtkHTML or CscHTML; the latter is de-GNOME-ified. From the screenshot, the latter looks like it can render Slashdot decently, which Mozilla definitely doesn't. (Not that I've played with either widget myself.)

RoutePlanner is hovering near a 0.4 release while I simultaneously improve the detailed database (you can now visit the Maritime Provinces of Canada and a few more relatively obscure hamlets of Mississippi) and look for bugs in the editor. I kinda wish the FTP admins would process the new packages at ftp-master.debian.org, if only so I could get some more testers. Of course, there's this little thing called potato too... :-)

Speaking of FTP, I'm thinking of fooling with reimplementing Apt-Proxy using FTP and HTTP instead of rsync and piping through downloads to the requester (apt-proxy blocks until the whole file arrives, which makes apt-get timeout on big files on a serial link). Maybe I'll get some work done on it sometime...

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
