pyguest 1.2

Did some document updates because of some good comments made by John Sullivan about the how-to included in the script. I hope will be easier to test, now when the test part is added to the how-to =).

Where did all of my time go?

It has been a very busy time for me lately. New job, a weekend in Malmö and a LAN weekend. I have not seen the inside of my apartment for like 3 weeks! OK, sorry I have actually slept there a couple of times =). After all Christmas shopping and all Christmas related stuff I hope I will get more time for other things. Hmmmm maybe I should be more effective this year and buy all Christmas gifts on-line.

New job

Started my new job today as a real-time system programmer at Ericsson. My new co-workers are very nice people that seems to like the same stuff that I do. NICE INDEED! They gave me a good welcome and I feel happy to have them as co-workers (at the same time, I miss my old co-workers).

Must sleep now!

To much to do

I have had tons to do for a couple of days now. Soon my LAN party season starts. We are a couple of dudes (12 to 16 dudes, age 25 or more) that play FPS games. I have merged a couple of map packs for different games so that the manual batch work of patching and adding maps will go faster. These map packs need to be tested and so on.

I have also written a lot on my thesis and formalized the new parser on paper (all in LATEX). Moreover, I.m trying to learn C++ and yesterday I was on the cinema watching AVP: Alien Vs. Predator.

So no pyblosxom plug-in coding has been possible.

Parser improvements done

I am back on track! I have now implemented the changes to my parser. I have done a lot of tests and I think the parser works as wanted. I will however do some more tests to be sure. But it is nice to have most of the work out of the way. I think I will release the parsers (both the old and the new improved parser) together with the thesis later. The parser code is kind of ugly, but it works. The code is ugly because it is a one time fast implementation (I hope that I never need to do a fast hack like this again).

I release that I have not explained what the parser actually do. The parser is actually a type/mode checker for an expansion of the programming language Java. The expansion is a mode system for expressing that a reference to an object only can be used to read an object and not change the state of that object. This is the short version of what the parser do. If you are interested, you can always read the thesis when it is ready.

Parser improvements

I did not get the time this weekend to build the mail submission form (pyblosxom plug-in mentioned in an earlier post), that I had planed. Instead I have started to test some ideas concerning changes in a parser (java based) that I have built for my thesis. Much of the test implementation is done, but some more work is still needed. I hope to finish the parser before Wednesday this week.

pyguest update

The guestbook ( v 1.1) now has full support for template variables in the pyguest_form template. Also, all sent data from the submit form are striped from HTML tags. However, I plan to add more features soon.

Mail submission form plans

I am planning to do a pyblosxom plug-in for sending emails to one address with a form. This can be a good plug-in for you people that don't want to place your email address on your home page but want people to mail you. I hope I get time this weekend to implement it.

This is my first plug-in for pyblosxom. I really enjoyed hacking this code and it got me to realize how nicely built pybloxom is! Time to sleep now. Good night to you all!

Today is my birthday. I am now 27 years young (don't like the word old here) and life is good. I will get my presents from my girlfriend, my family and her family on Sunday at the dinner that we have planed for that day. Today, me and my girlfriend will eat a nice dinner and watch a movie. I think I will rent Troy because I did not go to see it when it was run on the cinemas.

Mouse + no tail = bad

The Logitech MX 1000 would have been a good mouse if they had not made it cordless! It has a laser (good) but why have they shopped of the tail of this mouse (bad). This is crap if you are a gamer and I hope they will fix this in the future!

Philosophy study

My thesis writing has taken an interesting turn. To get my method description part of the thesis to be valid I have to read about Husserl and Kant. This is because I interpret my own usage of a system (a type checker that I have built). To explain why interpretation is a valid method for my thesis I must understand philosophies like Phenomenology and Hermeneutics. I think this is exiting and hope that it will give more than just some text in my thesis.

Excel on linux?

This is crazy! Found this on google when I searched with the following keywords: Python text-to-speech linux. The link describes how you can get Simple Text-To-Speech in Excel. Some excel scripting and you are there! Have M$ ported Excel to Linux =) (I hope people understand that I am joking here)? Wow!
