Exclamation where is baf?

Has anyone spoken to "baf" lately? Is he ok?
I tried to email him using the form on his website but when I enter the captcha and click "I'm a human" button I get "An error occurred: Input error: k: Required field must not be blank".
I realy love his work and I would like him to continue it.

Maybe he's porting OpenOffice.

Hi!

Thanks for encouragement!

I am fine. I still look into this forum from time to time, waiting for some new inspirations.
I must admit I lost interest in some of my projects like skipstone or gnash. It was a lot of fun to port it to Kindle, but then I realized that in fact I don't need such apps on an e-book reader. And maintaining someone else's code is difficult and not so much interesting
It still might happen that I will resume these works some day, when I have more time.

Anyway I heard it is time for developer's summer holidays.

Best greetings to all!

Regarding captcha on my page, it might have been a temporary problem with reCaptcha engine which is independent of my site. Try again if you want to contact me.

Glad to know you are still tracking the happenings in the Kindle world.

Hope you got a laugh out of the "Developer Summer Holiday Road Trip" video clip.

Well I am using it to read news on my kindle touch, compared to kindle's browser, skipstone, with a few glitches(the stubborn build-in keyboard), works very good. It does have tabs and doesn't crash that much. So I wish you to have more time
Thanks

And I have a bug

Once upon a time, skipstone was working just fine. But when I installed Debian (although I don't see how that could make a difference) I tried to download a zip with skipstone and it killed the framewok instead. I've replaced the binaries, and tried downloading from many different websites, but the problem remains.

Did the installation process you followed for Debian modify your .bashrc or .profile files?
That might be the connection between seemingly different things.

No. I just mounted twobob's image on mnt/debian and fiddled with the shell scripts to make them, erm, work.

EDIT: If it helps to know, downloading with elinks and the stock browser works.

Got it! I deleted /skipstone/settings/.skiptone/skipdownload_running and skipdownload_url. Now it works fine. Skipdownload must have been stuck on a download so it crashed whenever skipstone tried to run it.

Sounds reasonable.

Machine was saying: "Hey, boss, I failed and you told me to keep on trying (and failing)". Dumb machine.
