18 Jan 2001 elj   » (Journeyer)

Finally got my first elj- daily out for 2001.

  • Good to see the results of the Eiffel Struggle 2000, but it was disappointing to see only half the number of entries from the previous year

  • Glenn Maughan's Goanna demonstrates that Eiffel can be used to develop internet applications. [ Nice to see Marcio Marchini's yaesockets project being used in a broader context - no doubt the library will continue to evolve as SmallEiffel gets closer to a multiplatform concurrency implementation ]

I have had a nice break which included the Cook Islands (08-19 December 2000), Coffs Harbour (for Chrismas), Port Stephens (for New Year) and Perisher Valley for the last couple of weeks. While in the Cook Island I posted a summary of my experiences to the elj-win32-dev mailing list [ see Kia Orana from Rarotonga ]

Bought a Digital Camera for the break [ Cannon IXUS ] which has brought a new dimension to photography for me [captured some great sunset's and interesting shots of Snow Gums - did not realise the variation in bark colour].

The SmallEiffel project (getting close to 90,000 visitors now) is close to another -0.75 beta release - must check again.

I have started work again on the eljwin32all project. Uwe and Birgit have done a great job in starting the second phase of the project - we now have interfaces to scintilla and Postgresql and hopefully a couple of developers to finish off the interfaces and their integration into ccl/kk.
