Burried alive under heaps of email. Spent a lot of time yesterday writing various bits and pieces for future work, and spent some time caring for my sick girlfriend who was home from work.

Other than that, I got around to playing with freeWAIS a bit more. I then got the idea that I should modernize it and spent some time on this. Then I asked myself, "why?" and stopped doing it :-) The reason is that WAIS is based on Z39.50 (I believe), version 1 or so. Version 3 is what most people use and advocate today and there's some free utilities to deal with that already, such as those by the Danish company Indexdata.
