Hi Bob!

The jBoss project is quite impressive. It's eventually going to be a serious contender in the J2EE app server space and you can't beat the license. This is one of the few projects that gives me hope for large-scale enterprise applications written in free software.

Discovered some IBM JVM issues on Linux 2.2.x SMP boxes. Not really 100% reproducible either so I haven't tracked it down.

Nicole is down from Vancouver for a few weeks so not much free time to do a lot of KDE coding. The only visible thing I've come up with for a while is a patch for am_edit for Q_OBJECT detection. The bug reports for my apps are still coming in at a healthy rate - I wonder if I will have time for all this stuff before I leave. I hope I do, as it doesn't look I'll have the resources to do much programming in India. I need a laptop.

There is news floating around that someone has implemented rudimentary precompiled headers in GCC and it speeds up KDE compiles by a factor of 10 or more. Amazing! Can't wait to get my hands on it.
