It's been almost a week since my last entry? Where do I start?? Jabber development continues.. I finally posted an update to JabberCOM yesterday which has tons of improvements, bug fixes, and new stuff. I finally got UTF-8 encoding working (thanks Kutulu for those algos), so WinJab should not cooperate nicely with other languages and funky character sets.

Talked at lenght with jer about issues related to vCards, sending around roster items, and other cool stuff, and finally got around to hacking together file transfer stuff into WinJab... they work, and are really cool. We just need server proxy so I can finally send stuff from behind my NAT and firewall. I'm so close to IM nirvana - as soon as the AIM transport and ICQ transport get installed on Jabber.org, I'll be happier than a pig in.... a mud puddle.

Last Saturday, I FINALLY got around to completely re- stringing my Epiphone (guitar) with a new set of Elixor strings.. it sounds sooo nice. I still need to talk to my buddy Darrell about getting a pickup put it in it.. hmm.. there goes my new video card for the home PC. Oh well. Had a team meeting on Sunday for this retreat I'm working in a couple of weeks, and jammed with Chris M. afterwards at the apartment for a while - great fun - until he realized he left his lights on in the parking lot again. DOH!

I'm supposed to be going to LA for a trade-show demo thing this Saturday, but those plans may be changing (I'd rather not go anyways). We'll see what happens.

The climbing scene continues to depress me. Last Wed. we set a new record high temperature (69 F) and by Sunday morning, we had a foot (12") of snow on the ground. ARGH. I just want to get outside and climb. The Glen is still soaked, but hopefully, it'll get dry, warm, and windy.
