A whole lot has happened since I last posted, and I am not talking about my personal life. What scares me the most right now is that my brother is in the army back in Uzbekistan and he's supposed to get out on October 20, but Uzbekistan, alas, has been appearing on the front pages again, which is usually not a good thing. So, I've been praying for his safety.

Finished The Gunslinger and almost finished House of Leaves. That last one has a reputation of a very scary book, and I can imagine someone being affected by it in that sense, but to me it just seemed very disjointed, due to the way it is written. But then again, the first first page in the book says This is not for you, so there.

Haven't had too much time for PHP-GTK lately, which is a shame as it's really taking off and people are starting to develop extensions for it independently. And I won't be able to present the talk on it at the PHP Conference in Germany due to stupid issues with my passport and visa. Argh. Oh well, there's plenty of other stuff to keep me busy.
