Stuff happened.

I don't really use advogato anymore.

I feel lame for not having time to write enough free software, but I have little tolerance for free-software-politics, or the semantics-of-freedom.

Users should be able to remove themselves from advogato. I figure, I'm not contributing in a very useful way.. i'm taking up some diskspace. some resource on a box somewhere.

I went back to boston.

I found space.

I'll be heading there, in um.. about 6 days. Wow.

I cant sleep.

I guess i should do something. So i'm going try and make my hacked up gronk actually work. A while back I wanted to add a concept of "playpools" to gronk; basically I wanted to be able to decide "from what subset of my mp3s should the random play operation be performed on". So I wrote some code, flamed a bit about C code that was written in perl, and generally did a gross things to keep the current UI working, but expand the contexts it could work in.

Well, the apartment hunting didnt improve any. I never got to see the apartment because the current tenet decided that she was infact not getting kicked out after all. I'm not exactly sure how that works. Now apparently the land lord and the tenet are probably going to court, which removes that as being an option at all -- so now I'm down to 0.

Who would have thought the hardest part in getting a business going is finding personal living space in an alien city. Sigh.

Apartment hunting in the greater boston metro area sucks. After 5 days of calling people, I find only one place to go look at. Oh, except that the property owner is being a dork and hasnt gotten the key to the broker yet, so that the broker can show me the apartment. I guess its sellers market++.

Maybe I'll find a house before I return to austin tomorrow. If not, well, I'll come up with something.

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.
