It has been a long time since the last diary entry, here...

Well, there isn't much to say since the last time. NYE was just another day, listening music and having fun on IRC.

Current job is boring ... <insert spiffy ad "hire me">

Still haven't decided to take over the development of the bobot++, but since there isn't any bug in the BTS of Debian, there is no big need for this *g*. Well, in fact, since i have a few nice features ready, that would be nice. We'll see ...

Decided recently that i will try to switch the web server for the LUG, going to thttpd, which seems nice and will probably do everything i want him to do for the moment. 'cause, i still don't understand _why_ apache-common depends on libmysqlclient6. Not that i don't like mysql (i'm still using it most of the time), but do they really have to depend on such a old version (lib...10 is the current one in sid).

I will probably keep Apache for the fun (having `n' different modules and programming possibilities is fun, even when php4 is still b0rken). Tomcat is installed, and i'll try to add Cocoon by hand (i have been told that the version currently in Debian is quite old, so ...). Once it works, i'll try to write a few pages in XML. And then i'll have to make an offline version in order to publish it with thttpd (and if Cocoon can't do it, i'll try to remember how Python and XML work together :-).

ObRecovery: new HI-FI system. *yummy*. 'nuff said

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.
