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. :)
