(Trying again after hitting the wrong key in netscape and losing it all! I'll try to remember the gist of it.)

I like reading diary entries, but it would be nice to have a view of diary entries just from folks associated with specified projects. It can be fun to read random diary entries, but it is truly useful to read entries from other folks working on Apache. I don't know of an effecient way to get to such entries.

We communicate all the time on mailing lists, but these diary entries give a different angle on the person and what they are doing. We don't exactly clutter up the mailing list with drivel like this.

At the moment I'm working on replacing the BO_BYTECT usage... It is trivial to improve on the current situation (BO_BYTECT usage is broken since we use buff for so little of our data transfer now), but it is non-trivial to match the same semantics of BO_BYTECT in 1.3. With 2.0, output data can be held at any filter... With 1.3, output data is either held in buff or has already been sent, so it was trivial to account for it either way.

(Uninteresting details, huh?)

I've been trying to assist David in his efforts to add IPv6 and UDP support to APR by reviewing patches. I hope I haven't held him up too much. I realize that I've been a pest :)

Okay, time to press the button and go get Sonya ready for school (stealing some hot coffee along the way)...
