Whew, finally finished another Cream for Vim release. I never realized how much effort was involved in a Windows one-click installer. Also looking forward to learning RPM so we can release proper packages in the future rather than just tarballs. I've gained a new respect and will have more appreciation (and caution!) when I use someone elses.

Hopefully Vim 6.2 will be released soon. It's always nice to have an official release level to point folks to rather than trying to explain why patching would solve a particular problem.

I (still) hope to get a new hard drive soon, so I can get on with installation of the GNOME 2. My Red Hat 7.2 is starting to get a little worn, and a clean install to a new hdd with RH9 will be a refreshing change.

Now that Cream is settling down a bit, it may give me a little time to explore PythonCAD, and to learn Python. This seems a bit overwhelming at the moment, but I hope in a year to be as emboiled in that effort as I am now in Vim.
