Last weekend I went to F*SDEM in Brussels. It's always nice to see RMS with a hard-disk on his head (no pictures, please ;-).
I did a more or less technical presentation on IPFC on saturday, which I put on my website http://www.fruru.com/.
We're working on getting some useful data abstraction layers in IPFC to allow people to use a stable programming interface to write their plugins to, but it's more difficult than first imagined (well what's new ;-) ...
In 1 to 2 weeks, IPFC 1.0.4 will be released, with a whole new database schema - to get maximum flexibility while keeping speed and space usage acceptable.
The car is doing fine now. No strange noises except for the usual ones.
