My last week here so decided to go
up to the mountains with Bryce who for
some reason decided to take his laptop. After my recent
fun with cars and Durham Police I let Phil do all the
driving, which I don't think he appreciated.
I found a new xsl parser, libxslt and libxml, part
of the gnome project, seems to be quicker than Xalan and
has the advantage of being in C and not C++ (I'm so used to
release engineering for 30 platforms where even a working C
compiler is sometimes a stretch). Spent a good 6 hours on
Saturday failing to get it working right with Perl the way
I want it to, seems to be a strange memory problem that
goes away everytime I turn on debugging.
I was going to buy a Earthmate GPS receiver for my laptop
until I read that it doesn't output standard NMEA format
data so it won't work with Autoroute. I'm still looking
for a GPS solution so the next time I'm coming back from
Scotland and get stuck for 4 hours on the M6 without a map
I can find an alternative route.
