A lot has happened, and I'm sure a lot of it won't make it here.

Compass has been building a lot of momentum! First of all, lemme reiterate: Ted is da man. Say it with me folks, "Ted rocks." Not only might you see MouseMove in the near future, this guy committed an initial version of ActiveWindowDetailing and a froody new icon. In fact, I think I receive a good five emails from him every morning about Compass development issues. (Taiwan being 13 hours ahead of GMT -5).

This is not to say that I've been fruitless in my efforts either: Hotkeys are now fully functional, I made some modifications to ActiveWindowDetailing, fixed a couple of major bugs (Office toolbars are the weirdest things), and had time to squeeze in some new preferences in my spare time.

Seeing things come together is a great feeling. :)

Speaking of seeing, hopefully this means that you should be seeing a public release soon. In fact, I'd like to have the first public release of Compass coincide with a version of the Virtuallab (work-work) all in celebration of a new semester of classes. And for dinner tonight, we'll be serving... yes, stress.

I finished reading Ender's Game and am now on to Huxley's "Brave New World" (both XMas gifts from John :) Ender's Game was a great novel, and hopefully I'll make a dent in Huxley before my DVD player arrives. If you don't see a diary entry here for a while, check inside my TV.

Personal Revelation: I realized this week that it doesn't hurt any less to dump someone else, than to be dumped by them. It still sucks.
