Well its been a while ;) I've now turned 16, finished my exams, been on holiday and are commencing my long summer holiday, with plenty of time for coding.

I'm proud to report that the Open Projects conversion is proceeding, albeit slowly, but we should have moved over to dancer-ircd, in the next few months. We also now have a traditional automake powered build system.

There have been many ups and downs for Debian Planet recently, the slashdotting of our article on woody freezing, led our ISP to temporarily suspend our service. That has now been resolved, however whilst i was away the server was compromised. Fortunately xinitsystems.com are donating a server for us to run the site on.

Thinkopen.co.uk is relaunching and is in desperate need of content, contact Denny.

Much interesting stuff is happening at Xinit, however muks almost got RH on the webserver, but i got my way and Debian woody will grace the box, i do hope he isnt too annoyed ;).

The linux expo in London on the 4/5th July was great, and a big hello to all those who i met, especially those at the debian.org who made me feel welcome, and it provided ,e with a signed GPG key.

New code for the DP site is progressing well and i hope it should be mostly complete by saturday ;) I'm having fun with ideas for caching and mirroring but these wont be used initially. Expect an initial release of venom my python powered webserver soon, which is like zope but easier to use ;)

I may finally get round to getting myself a website, where i can host much of my software.

I'm in the NM process for Debian and have had anjuta a gnome/gtk IDE for C/C++ uploaded.
