planet-forming

So far, I have Planets building locally for AFFS, ALUG, the town where I live and some of my friends who don't appear on any of the sites I routinely read. The town one threw up a new bug: Local-News html-escapes and then URL-encodes the link tag in its RSS. I'm going to have to read the spec on that one, but I've hacked it in for now, as per "be liberal in what you accept".

SCSI is no fun. So far, the SCSI adapter only recognises the first device. I'm not sure whether they're both terminating devices. I'll try some more experiments, but it's slow because getting it wrong hangs the SCSI subsystem until the next reboot.

I want to rearrange the hardware in here. All (well, many of) the devices are on the wrong machines. I need a secure networked filesystem, print service and scanning (wireless in use). Time to investigate nfs v4 and some others, but I suspect hacking ssh into use may happen again.

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!
