What a whirlwind I've been living in. Last week was spring break for the local HS' and my gf's college. On top of tons of Jabber work the gf was extremely demanding in my time. Then I had a few meetings with some lawyers. They keep pressuring me to finish their HUGE project sooner than scheduled. No chance of that happening, I hated the entire project and started a rewrite of it tonight. Networked the lawyers office the other night, and today they called to complain about network slow downs on their file shares. Guess I'll have to go check that out tomorrow.

Jabber News
Well I redid the entire Jabber build system twice. Finally I found a system that I think works nicely. It uses sed to process the type and how to compile a module from a file. It also stores your settings for later use. I'm currently happy with it, but I have a few bad reports on Solaris 2.7, maybe I can get access to a machine with that on it tomorrow. On the future front, I've begun work on cleaning out aim-t. Hopefully that nasty random race condition gets hit out of the cob webs in the process. I also began a stock ticker, and news transport (going to borrow some of TCharrons code for this one). I'm doing them in Python so I can force myself to learn the language, so far the language it is quite cool. WOW! Just started talking with a guy on AIM about adding a Skytel Pager gateway and then client to Jabber. That would be amazing. It was going to happen eventually, but sooner is always better. On another front I'll be heading to Denver, CO for Thur and Fri. We're having a little summit up there, should be fun. I could have sworn I had something else on the Jabber front. Oh well. Signing off.
