We have been very bizzy at work porting our Unix app PrintExpress over to NT using MKS's NutCracker porting software. All seams to be going well and we almost have all the Base Servers working now. After that we have the large number of Workflow Servers to do. We seem to be seeing a slowness in connection setup for TCP, over what we see on Solaris, is this an NT thing?

I have also been attempting to move from MKS's Source Intergrity 7.3a to their new version Vertical Sky's Software Manager 3.0sp2 this seams to have take up a iritatingly large amount of my time. I oftern wonder if compaines that provide this sort of developement tools hve any idea what 20 Man Year projects are really like.
My NewGallo Shared World campaign is going well. Since the 19th Feb there have been 20 games refereed by 3 different referees and getting close to 25 different characters. At some stage I must find the time to update the site as there is a whole host of player created stuff.
Our web partnaship has been taking up more and more of my free time, one of our sites went live with a new version PDFcreator and I am working on the CGI to do the site in French, German, Spainish and Italian. This is at the same time as attempting to launch a brand new customer's site (more on this another time). And we seem to have other possiblities in the pipeline, maybe I can give up my day job some day :-)
I have just returned from the UK's Annual Easter SF Con. Four days of nothing but Drink, SF and Good Company in a fine hotel at cheap rates. Why where you all not there :-)
