OK, so WCW went pretty well... saw a lot of people that I hadn't seen for a while. paper went overy *fairly* well, I think that a lot of people there don't think at that level (not that it's higher or lower, just different). Still rethinking the proper path to take with a surrogate re: standardization.

The big item out of it for me was renewed interest in HTTP compliance testing. There's been a fair amount of talk about it, but little work, so perhaps I'll have to do something and give them a fait acompli (sp?).

cgi_buffer has gone into a alpha-ish release, and seems to be generating a bit of interest. I can't believe what a difference it makes to imp.

Other than that, not much. Work goes well-ish; list of things to do as long as my arm, yadda, yadda, yadda. I have become more involved with the W3C, which is... interesting to see from the inside.

Hello, world.

I'm currently up to my eyeballs in writing papers, both for work and conferences (nearest is WCW5 - time to start revising...).

Have been playing a lot with asyncore and asynchat to figure out the best way to but this together in a server, client, proxy and surrogate. trying to balance (coder) usability and performance. Persistent connections sure are a bugger, aren't they?

Got the Visor the other day; fun. Trying to get it going with USB on Linux... hmm...
