Worked on getting Xvnc and vncviewer to do client side size setting. Got that to work, but I messed up the event loop in the process. Need to figure out what needs to be setup or resetup after the vnc setup has occured.

Finally used the hacked divine code to modify /etc/pcmcia/network.opts so that it figures out what system I'm on. Works. Brings up the network at work and leaves it down at home where the pcmcia modem/network card where only one can be active at a time. Note: need to send mods to divine upstream.

Still learning goops (guile oops). Using it to parse the cbb files. I should work on the docs as soon as I figure it out. Need to figure out what makes MOP (meta object protocol) different than other oo systems.

Buffy and Angel night! :)

Worked on making zebedee use unix domain sockets. Getting close to making it work.

Working on new xemacs package for woody. Most of the changes done long ago, but now finally have my keys again. Packages done. Looks ok. uploading now. Man I hate uploading this thing over a 56k modem.

Found the parse bug in the zebedee. Now I've broken something else. :) It looks like it should work. Getting closer.
