I've got a new job! I'm no longer travelling the nation chasing robots. Nowadays, I'm doing more network-PC stuff. My exposure to Windows-based systems has increased, but that's what happens out here in the wilds of the IT industry.

braden's been doing some serious work on OpenVRML. I think I'm finally beginning to understand some of the profound architechture changes he's been focused on. It's a big project, but if you can wrap your brain around some of the code you'll learn some C++.

SGL finally crashed and burned, and I must admit that the final conflagration was Much more impressive than I thought it would be. It's lead developer kinda went nuts and tried to claim that his GPL'd code was his proprietary stuff. That was strange to see. Currently, I'm running Linux From Scratch. It was an educational transition. I don't think I could go back to a binary-based distro if I had to...

Now that I've been free of travel a while, the house is fixed up (now more leaks in the roof, painting, etc), my wife is happier, and I've begun decompressing from the mercenary robot-wrangling lifestyle. Yowsa! Things are much better than they were. I've even joined a local LUG. Spooky, innit?

I'll try and post more to this site. It's nice to have a venue that's passively attentive. Pax --
