Still swimming in a sea of ennui.

Work

Trying to gear up my code for eventual migration to using something like struts, while still allowing the client's developer to take small evolutionary steps that he'll be able to grok. So the first thing I've done is set up a generic form listener that is associated with a java bean (much like struts). I don't want to re-invent the wheel, but I don't want to throw too much at him at once.

I'm not sure this is the best thing to do, though. It's too easy for him to take my implementation as holy. Which is not what I want. I don't want too much of the existing code to stay in its NIH mindset. But there is alot of code to change to make it fit something like struts.

Coldstore
My GC implementation for coldstore is stalled. Haven't had much drive to work on it because of...
Life
Life is shakey right now. Still dealing with grief and loss. I've invited my brother to come out and stay with me for a few weeks so he can take some time to mourn, too.

My relationship with my gf is a bit rocky right now. It will be interesting to see how we deal with everything.
