Well it looks like RMI is the way to go after all. I really wish Perl had something comparable, and better garbage collection -- circular data structures are very convenient. Thankfully the problem domain is fairly simple, and reimplementing what I have already wont be too hard or time consuming.
Anyway, that may or may not be a priority in the Very Near Future. I've got higher priority stuff to focus on at work.
I am however considering defining my own XML language for vocabulary translations. I.E. to help me memorize Japanese vocabulary... *grin* Am I duplicating any efforts? I hope not... I'll be posting the DTD or specification on my site, along with reference code when I get the chance...
I haven't tried messing with global-IMEs and Unicode display in Java or Perl... Any advice?

Anyway, I miss my sweetie... I didn't see her today. :( Apparently however she and her mom nearly got killed on the way to dinner -- moron ran a long-since red light at around 50MPH. Her mom stopped just in time. He just waved as he blew by... Some people really need to be removed from the gene pool for the sake of the rest of humanity.
