This definitely falls in the category of a wonderful surprise. I was frustrated because going to the European Tcl/Tk conference was looking really difficult, and I wanted to go meet the guys there... Infact, it hasn't worked, out, but out of the blue came another opportunity to go speak here:
Cool! So I'm really looking forward to going to Portugal - it looks like a fascinating place to visit. It would be nice to have more time and visit some friends in Spain too, but Ilenia and I hope to do that for a real vacation in September or October.
Having a bit of a nasty problem with Rivet, Tcl, Apache, signals and threads. Not quite sure what to make of it so far, but it promises to be a nasty one:-/
I have an API thought out for a new input layer that will let Rivet handle CGI apps with little or no rewrite - hopefully I'll get some time soon!
