There is something rotten with the state of Advogato

First of all, the case of the missing accounts. E.g Stevey (now skx) and salmoni. Speaking of accounts; The people-page is empty.

Wait, there's more. Stevey's new RSS-feed didn't work until he had written ten posts, but my feed works eventhough I have only written five.

With this last thing the error could be with the posters, but I'm not sure. The thing is that in the RSS-feed, Nymia's links all look like this: <a href="" ''>Wingo's post</a>, but on the web they looks and works fine. Mchirico's links in the feed looks almost the same: <a href="http" ://>SQLite Tutorial</a>, and these too, both looks and works fine on the web. Strange, indeed.

Just testing gnome-blog.

Bold italic & both.

Not to be rude or anything, but your mozilla SVG-images really stinks. They're several 100 kB big and two of them doesn't look very good either.

Compare your mozdev.svg with mine and your mozillaorg.svg with mine. My pics are 3.3 and 1.9 kB respectively. Yours are 489 and 194 kB.

The trick?

I have no idea how you got the lizard heads so big, but it (the source) looks really messy. Haven't had the time to redo them yet.


For some reason your lizard heads have a gazillion tiny/invisible dots in different colors. After reworking your trex.svg I got it down to 5.6 kB from 557 kB. My own b/w mozilla head is even smaller, just 4.9 kB.

The gecko looks great, though!


I live without running water, since some clumsy plumber cut the wrong pipe, during the renovation going on in the house.

Salmoni - It's in turkish. I can't translate, but maybe tarzeau can help you.

Reported an ukrainan child porn site to Save the Children Sweden's Hotline Against Online Childpornography.

Got the URL from some thai spammer. Grrr.


Found hierarchical notebook when I was searching for a todo-list-tool, but now use it to organize my life. It's really great.
