Another year over And a new one just begun - 2001 passed boggingly quickly, much more than I had anticipated. Happy New Year!

R is for Reverse Engineering - Currently reversing engineering the EPROM from the Snack Vending machine that the University Computer Club owns for hardware compatibility reasons and to get it on the Internet. Needing to brush up on my HC11 assembly.

X is for XML-RPC - Currently toying around with it for two projects - the first being a library system for the local SciFi club and the other being a calendaring/scheduling project that is still just a nascent thought. The perl RPC::XML module rocks and so does the test page at www.dscpl.com.au that I can debug my server with. XML-RPC seems to be one of those technologies that is going to quietly take over the world.

O is for Open Source - Wading into that discussion, Open Source is not dead for the same reasons that Cuba is still exists as a communist state, they both work for the people involved. (Cuba was one of the more successful communist states till the mid 90s, and yes, I'm making an ironic comparision to the gee pee ell)

L is for linux.conf.au Plane Tickets are in hand and conference rego is just about to be paid this week, it's going to be lots of fun again (and will probably do wonders for my enthusiasm)

W is for Work - Been playing with a cute Australian Content Management System called MySource and submitting patches back. It's rather featureful and useable unlike some of the other web projects I've seen.
