Jeez, I am going to release GNU Smalltalk 2.1 Real Soon Now!!! I enjoyed HP's TestDrive program, it gives away lots of accounts on Alphas and IA64's and I used that to make it 64-bit clean and fix some lossages due to bad OS libraries (did you know FreeBSD's inttypes.h lacks intmax_t?)... very good.

I also started a pet project. I am going to take netcat 1.10, autoconfiscate it (which I already done), and make the code more readable (which I just started to do). How awful does that code look like! It will surely look too serious when I finish and less H4X0R-ish, but I hope it will be better as a programming example since it shows a good deal of socket tricks -- besides, I think the author exceeded a bit in disseminating the f*** and s*** words in the remarks...

In the meanwhile, my Darwin code has been reviewed & installed into libsigsegv.
