XML-RPC: Ho, hum. Lots of downloads, but almost no feedack. I added a C++ client API, and discovered all the wonderful new features which have been added to the language in the past few years. (Sarcasm intended.) But several major users like the C++ API, so that's cool.

I also wrote some scripts that build a complete, tested distribution in one step--tarballs, LSMs, RPMs, etc. This required hacking around with RPM's _topdir macro.

What's next? I dunno, since user feedback has been so skimpy. Either an Apache module, or a "Building a Client/Server Protocol in 15 Minutes Using XML-RPC HOWTO".

Car: I figured out why my car heater was broken. Get this: dodgy fan, dead heater core, chronic low pressure in the coolant system, dodgy thermostat, and a crack in the radiator cap gasket. Fixed most of it with off-the-shelf parts, because I don't want to pay for a rent-a-car while mine sits on some mechanic's lot. Other care and feeding included new wipers, window moisture repellent and a car wash.

Personal: It's time to restructure my schedule. This means daily exercise, plenty of solid productivity time, and time off in the evenings. I've done this for long periods of time before, and it makes me happy. I'm sick of erratic shcedules and conflicting responsibilities, so it's time to shape things up.
