Hey! I re-discovered how you post diary entries on this site. It's not the most intuitive interface ever....
An update: I've been working for quite a few months in my new job for Escala. I mostly do Extreme Programming training and consultancy with some EJB and Java training.
Work on Kew progresses slowly but surely. I still have loads to do before it is a generally usable language, but you can at least write non-trivial programs with it.
And finally, I finished my PhD last year and am now a Doctor. About time.
