Ivman code , life and blogging engines

Found this url in my referers list today. Looks like someone is coding on Ivman :) If you read this, please contact me!!! I can give you CVS access ;-)
I looked at the patch, but have to take a closer look later :oops:
It's true I don't have time to code on this project. Altough it's not only time that was lacking... :|

I have a love-hate relationship with Gaim 1.1. Sometimes it runs smooth, sometimes it just crashes (gets killed) when I e.g. close the last opened IM window. Besides, it almost continuously eats 15-30% of my CPU power, only dropping when other processes need the CPU cycles. And it still lacks Custom Emoticons support (like AMSN got). Maybe I'll try to code that last thing once I get time for it ;-)
I do love the new MSN icons tough :-) Finally you can see who is blocked by you.

Gaim MSN Icons

Looks I got listed on a new Planet, Planet JD, too. It's a big one :-)

I found out Guadec 2005 will be in Stuttgart, Germany this year, which is great news, except... the date. Exams start end May - begin June. No Guadec for me this year, again :-( Going to FOSDEM should be possible tough :-)

Forgot to mention I went to a performance by the Simoens trio on friday. Three sisters that perform pianotrio's (one piano, one cello and a violin). It was great to be there, if you like classical music and get a chance to see/hear them, don't hesitate.

I decided to start writing a new blogging engine, once I find a server that gives me web (PHP) hosting, a MySQL database, and a Subversion repository. I know there are lots of engines aviable nowadays, but all of them lack features I really like, like modularity. Both b2Evolution and WordPress are nice suits, but sometimes the code just isn't modular enough, or they use some hacked-together templating engine whith a lot of PHP code inside the template file, which is plain ugly.
My engine will be modular to the extreme (authentication|authorisation|(xmlrpc & web) input|all sorts of output, both html and xml (rss,...)|...), it'll use the PEAR packages wherever possible, and last but not least, Smarty as a templating engine. But this is a long-term project (university exams first).

Looks like we found out what we'll do on New Years eve :)

Planet actually works out rather well as a personal aggregator. I highly recommend it. It only misses two features currently. FOAF support, so I can just subscribe to Planet Debian's list and Planet GNOME etc. and get the union, and cookie support, so I can read protected posts on Live Journal, but at that point I would need to set up http-auth.

Humm, I just wanted to give ivman a try, but I can't install it.
# ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" USE="usb" emerge ivman
Calculating dependencies ...done!

!!! Error: the sys-kernel/linux-headers package conflicts with another package.
!!! both can't be installed on the same system together.
!!! Please use 'emerge --pretend' to determine blockers.

emerge -ptv ivman (pretend, tree, verbose)

Looks like something requests linux-headers, whilst you got linux26-headers already installed, which blocks linux-headers

I got the same problem on gentoo. The deps are a bit odd; unmerge linux-headers and then emerge linux26-headers. After that do a emerge -pv ivman and there shouldn't be any problems.
