Trying out ithought, as it sounded/looks/is pretty interesting. Noticed that ithought doesn't have any rpms. I may have to fix that later this evening... :)

Updated my account info a bit. Tweaked a few minor things, nothing major. Built some rpms for amcl and shipped them out yet. Haven't heard back from them yet, but this was over my holiday vacation so I suppose it's not unexpected not to hear back from them just yet. Actually, I suppose it should be called gnome-mud now, but they haven't made the namechange official yet.

I've been playing around with the ext3fs journaling filesystem for a little bit now. Nice stuff. Can't wait for it to hit 1.0.0 so we can play around with it "safely" in our production environment here at work. Considering that our news server is taking hours to fsck, it would be a big benefit... :)

Mozilla 0.7 is pretty nice. Including PSM is good (hopefully it's less buggy now). They finally fixed the annoying "Wow, I'm a horizontal bard, reload me over and over!" bug (like the horizontal bar at the bottom of slashdot's index page. Overall it seems more stable (so far) and hasn't run into any pages that will hang it yet (a good thing, it used to do this somewhat often). Overall, it's about as good stability-wise as Netscape 4.7 is, and it seems to render pages more quickly. NNTP handling is _much_ better in this release (one of their release notes mentioned this :) as well. Mozilla's starting to shape up, though Javascript continues to need a painfully large amount of work.
