Last entry before I go offline for a bit...
Flew to L.A. yesterday for a job interview. Things look
good, so I'm hoping to get an offer soon.
Today we pack the truck for the big move back to
California. (I hate moving, but I'd rather be back in
California, close to family, friends, etc.)
Eucalyptus is still coming along. I'm going to look into
doing socket read/writes better. It's too ugly right now,
and doesn't handle "non-standard" error conditions very
well. Gnet looks like it might be a good way to go. Given
that, it might be possible to merge the POP/SMTP code back
into the main thread, and avoid the pitfalls of potential
deadlocks, mutexes, semaphores, and the like. I think
threads might be more suitable for sub-tasks, like decoding
attachments, printing, saving to disk, i.e., stuff that
doesn't require an event loop.
Anyway, time to get packing/loading. The time away from the
computer will give me much needed subconscious processing
time for these ideas and others. And that's why I'll keep
my notebook handy. :)
