OK, I know, I'm being lax in my diary entries. But I've been very busy with the ICQ transport and other things; only now (since everything's crashing anyway, and it's jer's and temas' fault) do I have time to break away and write again.

This is now "Hell Week," the week before the 1.0 release, and the ICQ transport still has some odd issues with it. I've remedied some of them, but others are tough to remedy without getting someone to make it happen...and others I simply can't do anything about without knowing more about the ICQ protocol. Meanwhile, Dave and other people are having JECI issues, which I can't do anything else because that transport is sucking the life out of me!

I had to reconfigure my Linux workstation so that it could run Gabber today. Since it was an old Beta 1 release of Corel Linux, it needed a LOT of work. I pretty much wound up upgrading the whole system...and now it's a fairly vanilla Debian-frozen box with GNOME and Enlightenment. Oh well, it now looks a little more like my box at home...

Looks like TSBandit will be coming out here later this month. Well, I'm sure I'll enjoy meeting him...

Oh, and I still need to pay my taxes for 1999. This sucks, because that relocation allowance Webb gave me counted as income, and they didn't withhold anything from it. I may wind up having to call my brother and see if I can borrow some money so Pamela and I can eat for the rest of this month...
