On a personal note, married for over 15 years to most likely the most understanding and beautiful woman possible, my wife Eileen.

Trimmed my beard down to the obligatory goatee.

Gotta say, OS X is cool. Up to "now", it had been tough doing my development on Macs, using them almost simply as a terminal. I know, I know, sounds like I've just started using it, which ain't the case. But with 10.1.2 it's *really* useful now (still have too many things that require Classic). And it's cool seeing so much stuff available for OS X too. If it wasn't for that stupid PowerOpen crud after A/UX, we would have been here long, long ago.

Looks like my dissertation went well... :) Should know for certain soon.

Now that New Architect is out, I find that I actually * miss* writing articles. I've had a few people contact me about doing some more writing, so maybe I'll look into it.

I still hate libtool. I hate autoconf just a little bit less than I used to. But just a little bit.

Time for a quick one... It's official. I'm writing a monthly column for Web Techniques, called At Your Server. Should provide a good opportunity for some basic Apache, PHP and open source evangelism, as well helping some people out.

On the 11th, I turned the big one. Four Oh. Not as tough as I would have thought it was going to be.

Wow. That long since my last entry. See, I knew it

I'll be heading out to Santa Clara for a few days on Jan 21... maybe this time I'll take time out to actually do some siteseeing. And at the end of the month, up to NY for the LinuxWorld Expo. That should be pretty fun... One bad thing about living on the East Coast is that you don't have that many opportunities to hook up with the people you know via the 'net. Most of 'em seem to be on the West Coast (or overseas :) ).

Got another Web Techniques article in the hopper. Great magazine...

Running the 2.4 kernel on my G4 Yellowdog Linux machine. Works like a dream. Not as many things available for PPC format, but so what. That's what source and compilers are for. *grin*

*burp* - Excuse me... Anyone for turkey sandwiches?

Good news. My latest Web Techniques article should be in the Jan 2001 issue. Looks like it will be a featured article. I'll keep the anticipation up. Looks like eWeek will do a follow-up article on their "server side scripting language" article. Been speaking with Timothy Dyck who's a real nice guy. He'll mention PHPlib and PEAR. Amazing how many people don't know about the various DB abstraction layers available for PHP.

Just got my new Apple Dual G4 computer. Sweet. Got OS 9, OS X and Linux all booting up on it. YellowDog does a pretty decent Linux implementation for the Mac. Still like FreeBSD better :). The Mac just cooks. Compiles are super fast.

Working on getting jagubox2 (or maybe son-of-jagubox) up and running. Still a valuable resource... the A/UX community still exists. I still think that if Apple had focused on developing A/UX, we'd have had a OS X-like environment for the Mac years ago. Durn shame.
