Got an email from a guy named Arnaud this morning saying he too had been working on a Gtk+ for the MacOS project. He's further along than I am. I sent him a note suggesting we combine our efforts and post them to the SourceForge account I'd set up, but I haven't heard back. I'm amazed and encouraged; I still wasn't even sure how viable the project was. I haven't even booted either of my Macs in two weeks. ::sniff::

CottonBale is coming along moderately well. I've got two different front ends for it so far (one shamelessly snarfed in part from Bruce Perens because I think his www.linuxvc.com site is pretty nice and clean). You can see the prototypes at http://www.deirdre.org/events/bale.php3 (html snagged from http://linuxmafia.com/bale -- which it will eventually replace) and the other prototype is at http://www.sfknit.org/bale.php3. (knitting = cotton and bay area linux events = bale, thus CottonBale). Yes, I know all the "knitting" events are the same events. When I'm ready to go into production, I'll switch databases for sfknit; it's easier to make changes in one database than in two.

I don't currently have many events in there as I'm working on other aspects, but I do have a whole gaggle of stuff to add when it's ready to go.

Off to Baypiggies. I'm not prepared and I hope they don't shoot me....
