Well almost another month since I last posted. The thing is, it's not really because I have been all that busy, but rather, I have just not been up to anything worth mentioning.

Did get some kick butt new RollerBlades, I finally learnt how to skate backwards at a reasonable(or unreasonable in some cases) speed. Managed to get a huge blister on my foot because of it though.

On the tech front, I have been playing with Apache SOAP, and am successfully using it to develop an n-tier application. It's closed source, so I won't say to much, but if the initial reaction to the product is good, I may open source the base, and see how it goes from there.

As much as I love using open source software, and I agree with the concepts, I still feel wierd just giving away something that I have worked long and hard to create. I guess I am just a pure bred capatilist at heart. Yet saying that, if the product is good enough to be marketed, how much better would it be if it had a bunch of kick butt open source developers working on it. Guess I will just have to way up the pros and cons of it all, and just go with what looks right.

Any thoughts. Does anyone actually read this?
