nothing too exciting to report. spit out version 1.0 of colobus when nobody was looking. (it's an nntp server that runs off ezmlm message archives used by news.php.net and nntp.perl.org.) some day i'll get motivated to use a sql backend for the overview database instead of berkeleydb, and build a better web front-end.

for fun, i created rudimentary clones of metafilter and blogger, called conventia and gir. conventia was inspired by discussions on the php-mefi list, and gir by the blogger xml-rpc api (in fact, it doesn't have much of a web interface except to do things not exposed by the xml-rpc api).

buried inside gir is yet another xml-rpc library for php, which currently just implements the server-side. it takes a rather different approach from most xml-rpc libraries. some day i'll finish up the client side, document it properly, and release it as its own project.

so many half-baked projects, so little motivation.
