I am really anticipating the new Ximian release. From the screenshots is looks absolutely beautiful and functional. This means that I will be wiping Gentoo from my harddrive and installing Red Hat 9 (I have a RHN subscription that I can use from work so I can just use that). gentoo keeps crashing on my Thinkpad and dmesg and my log files don't report anything that I can send in a bug report.

Also have been hacking a bit lately on some outside-of-work projects. Wrote a frontend to nmap in gtkmm (can be found on my site), a php-xwindows extension that I have yet to release, and a pretty cool GNOME/gnet/vfs webserver that works a whole lot like KDE's kpf. gnet documentation leaves a whole lot to be desired, but it feels wrong to write the server with portable libs like GNOME and use Unix sockets (which is what I might just end up doing anyways).
