Feeding the evolution

I started hacking on a simple on-the-fly RSS->IMAP converter to read my favourite RSS feeds in evolution. Heise.de in Evolution

The current version is kind of experimental, there are issues with caching mailclients (such as evolution), marking messages read, detecting new feed entries, deleting of old ones

This also works with mutt ;-)Slashdot.org in Mutt

Complexity of Graphs

There is my diploma thesis. There should be plenty of informative graphics in it, but I’m just too lazy to do them by hand. Luckily, there’s Graphviz, which does a nice job in distributing graphs nicely on a sheet of (virtual) paper.

The problem is – I need lots of sub- and superscript, greek symbols and all mixed together as edge and node names – which graphviz can’t do. Using google, one comes up with ladot, which has two major problems: it does not work with the current version of graphviz and it does not play nicely with pdflatex, because it uses psfrag :-(

So, time to do some hacking again; we’ll see if I come up with a nice solution to this.
