Great paper from the O'Reilly OSS Convention in Monterey about Salon's CMS system. Looks cool, must nick some ideas ;)

Hey caolan, re: QNX -- don't believe the hype! It's nice, but not that nice... mark it up as a bit like Be.

Released Sitescooper 3.0.1 today, with quite a few bugs fixed and lots of new sites. It's nice to put that one to bed for a few days; maybe I can get back to WebMake for a while and fix a dependencies-with-perl-code problem.

BTW -- sitescooper users -- note that sitescooper.cx will be disappearing soon. It's sitescooper.org from now on. Those cheap sods in the .cx ccTLD registry folded their "free domains for open source projects" less than 6 months after it was first offered, so I'm f---ed if I'm going to pay them for a .cx after that.

Anyway, nothing I like better in the routine code maintainance dept than firing up the profiler, spotting a hotspot, spending 15 minutes refactoring it and getting a 10% speedup. Beauty!

In other news -- I joined FoRK and got a mail from James Casey, who (a) actually is a friend of Rohit Khare, like the list sez, and (b) I haven't seen in ages. He's apparently off in That London at the mo', but pints will be had next time we're in the same city I should hope.
