Two hours searching the web trying to find a S/KEY OTP or OPIE generator for my new Pocket PC. Another hour trying to get a Java environment running on it and failing to remember how to write Java that doesn't run inside of Applets. Annoyed and frustrated I found the C source to OPIE, grabbed the VC++4.0 embedded studio from Microsoft and within an hour had knocked together a hacky app. It's not pretty (I thought I'd banished such things as CStrings and LPCSTR pointers to the back of my memory) but it works.
I wrote some stuff for Apache Week about the new Apache Planet aggregator, and Joe wrote up the Bugtraq wont-die thread about leaking fds.
