Meanwhile, I partially finished moving JECI's InfoQueryPacket class away from depending on a <query> tag as its child. This is important to properly support vCards. I need to finish the 0.9 updates pronto, as Dave Scott will be needing JECI for what he's doing.
Meanwhile, genesis, our first jabber.com development server, should be up today; I'm waiting for Robert in NetOps to tell me it's wired up. It's a VA Linux FullOn 2x2 dual-P3 box; sweet! (The production server, hendrix, will be a quad-processor box, also from VA). Pamela also said to make sure we include the name "aerosmith" in our list of "future" machine names; she loves Steve Tyler. (Oh, in response to kelly's concern, who's going to sue us over machine names? I don't see Paramount going after outfits that have host names taken from Star Trek, for instance, and, given Paramount's track record in the legal department, they'd be the ones suing over host names, if anyone. Speaking of which, if we set up a Beowulf cluster, I want it to be named after Borg, with nodes named "locutus", "hugh", "seven", "crosis", and so forth...)
It's snowing outside. Two days ago we had sunny clear skies and temperatures pushing 70 (or 21 Celsius). That's Denver weather for you. The only thing you can do is expect the unexpected.
My business cards should be ready tomorrow sometime. Then I should go down to the hotel and pick up my badge, so I can be set to go at the CLIQ show right when it opens.
Later: I see that, when GnomeICU reads peer-to-peer packets, if it finds 0 bytes available, it just closes the connection. The original libicq does the same thing. I just modified the functions in peer_receive.c to do that. Hopefully this will perform a "buzzkill" once and for all.
Snowing harder now. Dave's not used to this :-).
