Work has actually been good for this week. I'm working on a php authentication system so that we can handle authentication of modules and pages (or about anything else) on our sites. I'm currently working on a little setup script for it, so that it's easy to setup a system that uses it. The setup script uses perl. Hopefully, I'll be able to release this open source, though. I'm hoping to be able to make some other code releases open source from our various projects here at work. More to come on that soon, probably.

In other news, I've also been working on my site quite a bit, and it's near release. The initial release won't have too much on it, but hopefully more will come very shortly.

And I'm having a tough time dealing with Adair being all the way over in Asia. Hopefully the time will start to pass more quickly...but so far it hasn't. I guess we'll see how that goes, too. I'm really ready for her to be back. Oh well, I guess only 5 more weeks to go.

Things are still crazy here. I've been working on web servers here at work, and really don't get any great free time to spend doing things that I want to do. Hopefully that will change soon, though. That's about all I can hope for. The site that our company is working on, though, is coming along very nicely. We're hoping to have it released by the end of June. Other than that, nothing much has been happening for me. Oh...but one good thing at least will come out of this summer. My Linux server admin skills are increasing rapidly, as that's been most of what I've done. :)

Life has been hectic since I've been here working. It's amazing how much time 8 hours of the day is. I haven't really touched any of my projects. But, I am working on my personal site right now, and hopefully I'll get to the cod site here sometime soon also. All in all, though, I'm enjoying the summer and am trying hard to free up the time to work on clugbot and the cod site.

Well, I finally got the word from Judson, and he's going to give me an account on the clug server, so hopefully I can begin development on COD this evening. I think that'll be a good thing.

I don't think that I will get everything done nearly as quickly as far as the COD site is concerned, though, simply because I've had a serious case of laziness come over me. I've wanted to sleep a lot lately, so I may just do that here for the next few days after work, rather than programming. And, I want to finish reading The Greatest Generation.

I think I only have to say three things about today. Exams are finished.

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.

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!
