Seems to be good news on what me and Todd talked about the other day. Doesn't seem to mention the other bills though. Link is to slashdot because of those stupid newspaper registration things. Draft bill shot down You can probably find a better link through google though.
I watched the VP debate which was lackluster at best, still wish each party didn't conflict with themselves so much. I guess it is much easier to find faults, than fix them.
Laszlo sounds interesting without me really reading anything about it, sort of Flash MX-ish but now open source. If it only didn't require the hopelessly complicated J2EE. Looks like they plan to integrate with Eclipse (only speculation on my part because they chose the same license).
I messed with some more bite-sized mcs stuff today, small error fixes and stuff. Most of the test failures now seem to be where mcs reports a generic parser error, instead of a more specific one, which would be nice to fix but probably not a high priority. I think I am getting to the point that I understand (most) of the process now, but not enough to write a compiler yet.
