Well then. It's been some time. Well it certainly feels that way. I have currently made a concerted attempt at fixing ferite's namespace polution problems and defining a more conrete policy regarding namespaces - along with better name resolution. This is taxing my brain so I have decied to take a week off from coding it, this finished on monday.

In the mean times I have been doing a few more social things with my life - finally caught up with some mates from school I haven't seen for ages (spoken to them - but they are the animated sort of people that can only truely be appreciated in the person) in the pub - this was excellent. I then spent friday in London for a friends 21st birthday party and caught up with my flat mates and close friends from uni - this was also excellent. (the reason why I have been lazy is because I have spent most of my awake time at work).

Speaking of work, I wrote a small netware client for some people to mount the netware shares at work with a similar interface to that of the window's client. The app can be found here. I then found out that we no longer needed linux. Arse. Well at least the last week has been better than all the others (basically playing with Linux-Mandrake - which is better than redhat but by no means debian =p, coding and playing with my favorite OS). Incidently I still plan on working on the netware client - 0.2 is slowly coming along nicely (planned features: automounting on login, multiple mount points and servers, indepentdant mounting/unmounting). I finally finish work and amble back to university on friday (well go back on sunday) which I am really looking forware to doing.

So there we have it. Fun. I have also made some changes to darkrock which make it more fun and actually provide more. And having had 47,500 hits, that aint bad for a homepage :)
