it's all greek to me

It's been a while since my last blog entry... I haven't done much work on modest lately, but it is in safe hands. I did start a new little hobby project though; it's called mu, and it's a collection of command line tools to index / search e-mails stored in Maildirs. It doesn't run on N8x0 (yet), but I guess it wouldn't be very hard to port it. Of course, this kind of software has been written before - but for a hobby project, that does not really matter. It's all about trying things out.

I am taking notes about the things I learn as I go along... there's a lot of optimization stuff to discuss but unfortunately, it's too much to fit into this blog entry... will write about that later. I am off to Greece now -- to corrupt the youth of Athens. I hope I can understand the people; I taught myself a little bit, but rumours have it that the language has changed quite a bit in the last 2500 years...

And not to forget: happy birthday, GNU. 25 years... I may not always agree with RMS, but he deserves the greatest respect for his accomplishments. A George Bernard Shaw quote comes to mind:


"Reasonable people adapt themselves to the world. Unreasonable people attempt to adapt the world to themselves. All progress, therefore, depends on unreasonable people.".
