New version of PDFResurrect

Wow! It has been just over 2 years since I last updated PDFResurrect. I made a few bug fixes and added in some makefile and configure patches from the Debian maintainer, Francois Marier. Exciting blog post you say?! YEAAAAAH YAAAAA! And special thanks to 757labs and especially to Jody for fixing some wiki issues.

Water water everywhere...

Woke up this morning to the voices of my neighbors complaining about water... and then hearing sloshing. Well, someone's hot water heater busted. I am on the top floor, and well that water went everywhere. My apartment flooded. Luckily I lost nothing except for some sleep, and ummm well I have a wet floor now. I must say, our apartment manager here was on it fast! He called in a crew to dry/suck things up. I am worried the floor is still wet and I'm afraid of bacteria. He said they sanitized things, but yeah. Anyways... the worst part, I vacuumed the carpet last weekend. -Matt

Ok... That's it! I'm ready to leave this country...

BREAKING NEWS: WORLD'S LARGEST SPIDER ENTERS MY HOUSE. Sitting down trying to get some work done on a side-project. When I see this sprawled out thang moving near my window half-hidden by the blinds.... "Oh not it's not" ... Yep! A spider alright. One of them ginormous Australian beasts! I could have put a saddle on the monster and ridden' 'er around. Instead, I captured the creature using an empty plastic Chinese-food container and took 'em outside. One of the most horrific experiences of my life. I do hope he/she is happier outside though.
