This diary entry brought to you by way of cmiller's handy little advodiary script. Thanks, you provided the impetus I needed to upgrade to Python 2.2. ;-)
My laptop has been acting flaky lately; when I'd boot up, it almost seemed as though the built-in screen couldn't handle the refresh rate that the video chipset was delivering; it'd display the initial "COMPAQ" logo, then blank like it usually does (making a video adjustment; the affect is far more pronounced on an attached monitor), and that's it: no more video. Usually, I'd get the video feed back, and the "COMPAQ" logo would appear again as usual. Attached monitors were unaffected. However, a gratuitous thwack tonight appears to have jostled it's little brains into working again. I'll probably still take it apart this weekend, just to see if it's a loose connection somewhere.
What was that phrase an old friend of mine used to use? "Beware of programmers who carry screwdrivers", if I'm not mistaken. Ah well, I've been a sysadmin long enough, I've earned my Leatherman(tm). ;-)
gary and CSSificationn of Advogato
Bring it on. ;-) It's very cool to see activity on mod_virgule again.
PHP and XML-RPC at Advogato
I've got a little more cleaning up to do (most specifically, with caching Advogato data rather than banging on it every time someone loads the diary), and I'm just waiting for gary to commit the rest of his XML-RPC interface enhancements (which I'm hoping contain the ability to extract the date of posting, and possibly a last-changed value for the entire diary itself, for caching purposes? :-), and I'll likely make the PHP code available somewhere.
