So, a status report on mozCC. This is what works:
- RDF extraction (for real this time)
- RDF parsing (again, for real)
- interpretation of License permissions (mostly)
Things left to do (fix):
- display the parsed license and work information in a dialog when the
user clicks the toolbar button (ala
- properly handle some of the license attributes (i.e., “no
derivatives” is signaled by the absence rather than presence of
- some graphical cleanup
Right now things are only working with Mozilla Firebird, but I’m hoping
to add Mozilla Suite support as well once things reach a basic level of functionality.
I just saw on the Python Daily URL
that ZConfig 2.0 is
out. I migrated our internal backup software to ZConfig from Python’s
over the summer after cursing one too many times at it’s inability to do
intelligent type checking. While it was a pain in the ass to create the
schema and grok the datatypes set up, it was well worth it. Finally,
config files you can actually read!
In December, 2001 I bought my first digital camera, a Canon Digital
Elph. I bought it because some of my friends (Mike,
Mark) took amazing pictures of their
lives, and I was incredibly envious of these snapshots of life they had
collected. My observations of both of them made me want to be the kind
of person who takes lots of pictures. I don’t think that sentence really
says what I mean, but I’m also not sure how to properly articulate it.
So I bought the camera and took lots of pictures for a few months. Of
course, it tapered off soon after. But lately I’ve been wanting to
record moments in my life. I think this stems from the realization that
I’ve taken very few pictures this year, and yet so much has happened; we
bought a house, have a new dog, etc. Things I should have recorded.
With that in mind I’ve dusted off the pictures I took over the past few
years and created My Life in Pixels, at
pixels.yergler.net. Right now it’s just what I had before, but I’m
hoping that actually have a place for them will help to movtivate me.
Note that I still need to do some cleanup; the entry titles are just the
filenames, which were generated by Gallery (way back when). Of course,
cleanup isn’t nearly as fun as creation, so it’ll be a while.
