Hobbies and Work

WikkiTikkiTavi version 0.20 is now in beta test. Did a complete rewrite of the parsing engine and presentation system. It's now got templates and a whole host of other additions, making for a considerably more mature product. The whole exercise was quite fun.

Just in time for work to start sucking up all of my free time. :-) Beginning the next release cycle with some heavy-duty assignments, which will be fun but extraordinarily demanding.

What little free time remains I will continue to work on AndStuffWiki, which suffered a little while I was working on the wiki engine. I'm really eager for it to start growing at a measured and steady pace, both in terms of content and participants.

Life

My wife and I are buying a house, which we'll be closing on at the end of May. Our first house, which has been quite an educational experience! Thankfully, we had a wonderful realtor who helped us every step of the way. It'll be a pleasant improvement over our apartment, not to mention the fact that we'll finally be sinking our monthly payments into real equity.
