Woo! Productive day, finally. We were supposed to have a meeting about Gabber2 development, but temas ended up having a really long meeting of some other kind to attend. However, in preparation for the meeting, I wrote up a little analysis of some of the usability things that I feel we should learn from iChat, Apple's AIM client -- it's intended mainly for those without the fortune of using iChat. I think it turned out quite well. Hopefully Jabber client authors will take note.
Tomorrow I'm going to return to Gabber2 hackage... and overclock my 800 MHz Duron. When 1.2 GHz Durons (the max my motherboard supports) cost only $40, I figure there isn't too much harm in messing with the processor I have now. If it turns out to work well, I'll overclock the 1.2 GHz Duron I buy at the upcoming computer show.
