On Wednesday I move to Canada to live with Amber, my partner, my paramour, my pregnant fiancée. Life is rich and challenging and deeply satisfying.

This weekend Greg and I worked really hard to fix all of the bugs in Mojo Nation. By Monday morning we had Mojo Nation release 0.87, which is actually stable and useful (you can install it and surf Mojo Nation and download stuff). It still has some big performance issues, but that's because we've been too busy just making it work to worry about them.

It is actually an interesting question as to how to optimize downloading time in Mojo Nation. Raph gave me some ideas about this a Linux World. (Raph's diary entry says that the Eazel party was the high point. That's great, because that's the only part of Linux World that I attended! Oh yeah, and I drank part of a free beer courtesy of VA Linux and I danced to an extended dance mix of "Enjoy The Silence".)

Unfortunately I'll probably have other priorities and Greg will get to have all the fun of writing an optimized download strategy for Mojo Nation. Drat.
