Woah, its been a big long time since I wrote here. I've been really busy with getting settled in at my new job. It is really a lot of fun, I am responsible for a bunch of sun boxes and linux boxes and keeping the network as a whole running smoothly. I'm now looking for an old sun box to play around with at home. On the Docs front, I've been working on docs for gnucash 1.6, they are due to release it on the 10th so not much time left. I may start reviewing the gnome-user-docs after this. We had a great meeting today at the LUG, Alexander Guy (who incidentally is one of the primary developers of 'Familiar' a linux based O/S for the Ipaq) gave a presentation on IPv6. It was VERY interesting. seems like it will make a lot of things better for networking and also make some things (like natting) obselete. Imagine having your own Personal Area Network on the devices you carry around with you like watch, cellphone, PDA, etc. Finally I purchased a Creative Nomad Jukebox, a MP3 player with a 6GB laptop HD its pretty cool, fits my whole CD collection easily on it and is so much more portable than carrying around a bunch of CD's. I'm going to be using it to listen to music while I cycle to work each day.
