I think I've found the icq-t buzz. It was in my ICQ_free function in libicq-erbo, which frees a connection handle. Part of the process is unlinking the connection handle from the master list of connections. Well, guess what? My loop for finding the predecessor node forgot the essential "p = p->next_conn;". D'OH! Can you say "infinite loop," boys and girls? I knew you could!

The server at jabber.webb.net is now handling ICQ traffic for the main jabber.org Web server. That's how I was able to spot the buzz, by getting lots of users. Now let's hope nothing else crops up...

We had an entertaining discussion this morning about naming servers for Jabber, Inc. (jabber.com, as opposed to jabber.org). We settled on the theme "70's rock bands." The first two servers will be "hendrix" and "genesis". We'll add "zeppelin" as a QA server later, and we've got another bunch of names waiting for more servers. I also sent the list to Pamela for more input.

With the advent of open-source Doom engine clones, I've been fiddling a bit with PWAD construction at home. I did this a while back, but now I can do it under Linux with open-source tools. I'm working on a level map containing a huge cave as its centerpiece, along with interesting things like teleporting monsters. It should also make for a good deathmatch level...

On Saturday I get to go to the Colorado Linux Info Quest show, down at the Marriott in the Denver Tech Center. Partly, it's to look for possible new prospects for Jabber, Inc. (They're printing me up some Jabber business cards in a hurry.) So if you're going to be there, and you want to work for Jabber, Inc., keep your eye out for me :-).

Now I need to get back to JECI, to update the Info/Query handler to the new standard and try and do something about vCard support. Maybe now I can finish that part.
