Well, now you know how patchy my diary entries were as a child. When I'm rich and famous and I publish the "Duncan Diaries" (catchy title, no?) they are going to make very light reading indeed.
Lots has happened lately. I no longer work for my old employer. In fact, I no longer work for anyone. I've been spending my time over the last couple of weeks working on my programming language: Kew. It works now, and is shaping up nicely. It is a container-based object-oriented language which borrows heavily from Smalltalk and Scheme. It is based on Glib and C and is intended to be purely event-driven. It should be easy to embed in most Glib-based software and hopefully will continue to have a small footprint.
