Work on Symbiosis went well this weekend, and I am now finished the login / main UI, and now working on the Client framework. Should be able to start putting together the password tracker as the first "client" after that is done. It is going to be a busy week, so perhaps next weekend.

The SF folks cleaned out the old Symbiosis tree for me, so if anyone wants the old code I am probably only 1 of about a dozen folks that have a copy. Other than some IRC Bot code there wasn't anything all that wonderful in the old tree. I will be uploading my new code into the empty tree once I get the Client and Service frameworks solid, so I can be fairly certain I won't be making severe changes to the tree structure.

Just had another disagreement about whether java was pass by value or pass by reference, and I only bring it up because those migrating from C++ (and perhaps other languages), could be confused about some Java behavior if they believe it is pass by reference. I find the following article as a good summary on the subject.

Hope everyone has a great week.
