It's the UK TAX end of year ... "Pay unto Ceaser what is Ceaser's" :(
The X Windows System:
Yes, I am one of those people ... that remembers the days of xlib and was a member of the EXUG. I have always felt a bit removed from the X community since XFree took over after the GreatUnixWar (ie AT&T+Sun vs everyone else) ended spawned the talking shop of the OSF which eat the X Consultium and then did nothing with it.
I will be watch the new developements with xwin.org with intrest.
I would realy like to find some free time to help out with this project as it is something that the *nix community should use more of. RPC technology is still the future, Web Services are infact just the same thing using XML as the transport mechanism.
Things have moved on in our gaming group and we now have a large Wiki site IronFort. I let the old NewGallo site die and moved the information to NewGallo Shared Campaign.
Saw Jonny Darko last week, a very intresting film. In a way it's rough edges are what makes the film worth watching.
It is weird but I am off to the UK SF EasterCon again this year and I notice that it is two years since I posted a diary, does life fly some times.
