monotone is self hosting now. I massaged it into playing nice with other network protocols, so now it has this HTTP/CGI server type as well as the netnews one. that's good because people can just set up private depots if they have a web server account, and don't have to bother finding a news server.

I feel like this is a nice milestone. a couple years ago I needed a good free distributed version control tool, and now I have one.

I've been spending the past couple months working on native java2d on cairo. it's kinda fun, a bit of a break from low level stuff. brings back memories of berlin only without the corba and windowing system business, and with a garbage collector. of course, libgcj takes just about as long to link on my modern pentium 4 as berlin did on my "modern" pentium 1, so I guess some things never change.

some things even seem to get worse!
