My sister had her birthday today (5 yrs old). She got a nice toy cooking set, some crayons etc - only few presents, she received most at Christmas already ;-). And she'll have her name day in two weeks! Well, we had at least a good tasty cake, done by dad - he can do great cakes.

I didn't do so much as I wanted today :-(. Most of the day I was doing some annoying debugging for GTS (my logic is rather complicated and sick in one part of the exchange alarms watching application I'm doing for them), and I didn't fix it fully yet, so I'll have to finish it tommorow :/. Otherwise, I was working together with scanline on converting ciabot.pl to talk XML to CIA and we were successful.

Also poked Advogato again, and rated few other people, and marked myself as involved in another few projects. It's funny how the web-of-developers works, it's not easy to browser through people certifying themselves and not hit someone you know (as in you at least talked to him through IRC or email directly) every few nodes. Maybe it's sad, but I guess one of my mid-term life goals is to benefit the OpenSource community enough that people decide I attained the Master level (which is rather just a motivating factor for finishing the large number of started projects of mine to some usable shape).

XS26's noc machine again dead, it seems, I jsut randomly poked it when looking for something. Sad state. I don't think I'll get myself largerly involved again, noone is really interested it seems. Zebra sucks ;-).
