Decided to cure my malaise by novelty. Started learning Python again with the eventual aim of converting Mason to python. Don't know if it'll happen, but boy is python a gorgeous language. I mean, I love perl, but it is so fugly...And on the OS front, bought myself a copy of BeOS 5.0 to see what's up on that front. Should be fun.

<rant>Has anyone else noticed how little innovation there really is in the free software community? I mean, I was browsing sourceforge last night for projects, and realized i could be:

  1. Creating a new IRC client
  2. Creating a new Napster|Gnutella|Freenet client
  3. Writing a new window manager
  4. Working on a massively multiplayer OpenGL space/fantasy 3l33t RPG.
Is their anything really innovative out there? </rant>
