unstable alert. :)

(i) nvidia's 7676 (latest) does not compile with linux-image-2.6.14-1-686

(ii) gnome-panel is useless. applets take ages to appear on the panel. and i dare not click on 'em cause that will freeze the desktop.

(iii) scim-m17n still not installable. i do not know how i can make scim work with anthy so i can input japanese.

tango project. that's creativity. a relief. numerous window managers were made to make us think there's no room for enhancement. now we see there still things to work on. we may not agree on the exact details, though. ;)

grep-dctrl. this tool is great for searching information on debian packages. personally, i find those browsing tools like aptitude are horrible time sink. maybe just for a debian junk like me. :)

on a side note, the bleeding edge of unstable is in trouble now: (i) acroread cannot work; (ii) openoffice cannot work; (iii) scim cannot input japanese. be warned. :)

bnfc and lhs2tex. two lovely tools in and for haskell.

i failed to find interesting things in programming languages. i learned programming about five years ago. after that i was just wandering in the land of programming languages and failed to find anything of significance.

about two years ago, i began to learn game theory and eventually economics. i think i've found something this time. but it is totally unrelated.

my current project in economics will end soon no matter what. i hope to do some programming work again.

since the previous week, a few more sites i frequent were inaccessible. it may be tech problems. but you can't help yourself thinking other ways. it's like: the tide began to change. :)

mathwriting.ps. Mathematical Writing by Don Knuth et al. the more people read it, the better. :)

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!
