Busy couple of days again. The ICQ transport now includes support for searching for users (with the jabber:iq:search namespace) and reestablishing connections after Mirabilis' server drops them. Things are looking up in that department!
There's a goodbye lunch today for my coworker Jenn, who I've known ever since we were both working for Durand in Santa Barbara. (After the merger, she relocated some time before I did.) It's kind of sad, but she wanted an environment where she could do some more active marketing. (Yes, she's a member of the "canary yellow crowd.") The lunch is going to be at the Hotel Monaco, which has a nice Northern Italian restaurant.
Snow yesterday, and lots of it (maybe 8 inches in the metro area). The drive home was harrowing, especially since I had to stop off at Bed Bath & Beyond and Safeway on the way home. But it's nice out today; the snow should be melting fairly quickly. At least Pamela got her snow; the Torrey pine tree in front of our patio was covered with it, its branches weighted down. Last night, I took a broom and knocked some of the snow off the lower branches, and they sprung right back up.
I'm not even going to look at the stock ticker today. It's just making me depressed.
Now it's time to finish the mods to JECI so a Java applet can send search requests and receive responses. Then I guess I'll get back to figuring out some more of the new applet code.
