It's been a long time since I've updated this. Feh. I've spent a great deal of time getting my research code working, with good results. Data is pouring in, and I should be finished with my dissertation by October of this year.
I am just managing to stay abreast of the changes pjf has made and is making to Finance::Quote. Pretty much, I am content with it, since it "Just Works" with the scripts I use to update my stock portfolio price in Quicken.
I have removed Linux from my B&W G3, since neither LinuxPPC nor the Yellow Dog distros were particularly compelling. I installed Darwin BSD, and shortly thereafter, the OS X Public Beta. I am very impressed. I have been using the international build (2E14) that was shipped to developers in October as my sole operating system for almost 4 months.
I got XFree 4 installed about a month ago, and with the use of Torrey Lyon's Xmaster app, I can now run all the Linuxy things I need without dual-boot. How's that for service?
