Many things happend. Some things done.

My homepage makes progress and i set up some projects i am working on. Most of my time i spend in getting a job.

I started the two projects uce (ugly compile environment) and bootdiskkit. Both are derived from older stuff i made with my friends.

More projects are in progress...

The things aren't gone as i wished. So i am heavily involved in learning till April :( But in my spare time i am trying to do something.

Currently most of my time i am reading some mailinglists and learn of the experience of other people. I decided that i don't publish my "Distribution" as a distribution. My intention is another. Those people of Rocklinux have to do really ugly things like care about initscripts in different forms. I won't support everything, especially if i thing they are going in the wrong direction. My primary intention is to create a suite for compiling sources under nearly every distribution and plattform. So i called my suite uce for ugly compiler envirenment. Currently i used rpmbuild and make. But that is unusable for publishing and ohter things. So i will first write some tools. A replacement for rpmbuild and a tool for fetching and maintaining the sources. I think the fetching tool comes first. I will soon publish more on this topic.

I have done something for the distribution. Currently i am in heavy learning... Got a domain from my wife ;) Next week i will put some stuff on it and publishing some documents. I think there will come some more interesting entries next week ;)

Currently i am crafting at my distribution... slowly it take Form. I am working with it but the automatism aren't ready yet. And if they are it isn't like i want them. But first i want a workable version from where i can go further... More details will hopefully on my homepage...

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.
