Got married recently, and I haven't had much time for hacking. Actually, I haven't had as much time as I'd like for hacking in quite a while now. But then I guess I'll never be able to go back to those 2-day stretches I pulled when I was 14.

Recently I've gotten into Make and AWK. I used those two to create my new photo album software (source code available, but it's not for everyone), and a suite of Makefiles to build directory listings in my web space every night.

I have this dream of finding some project I can really contribute to, but I'm becoming increasingly aware that this will never happen. What I seem to be best at is contributing useful bits and pieces to projects (maradns is the latest), and then moving on. Which is okay, but it sure makes it hard to keep track of the hundreds of little hacks I've done.
