Voting In Texas

Okay - I need to post this information somewhere so that if someone is voting in Texas and is unsure where to find info he/she will get this in google.

Call this number to check voter registration: (713) 368-VOTE

Check this address to find out where to vote (this is for Harris County in Houston):


Thanks. Hope this helps someone in the future.

Jabberd 2

I have written two patches to Jabberd 2. One for imap auth and the other for sqlite support. Sqlite support is currently kind-of borked but as soon as I finish a big project I promise to finish it up. Promise.


I have been reading the threads on Python/Mono/Java. I have been learning Python and it is refreshing. Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems like the one language that actually considers itself a tool and not the one-and-only-true-language. In the book that I have been learning from it shows how to write extensions in C - and it seems simple and natural.

Plus, the idea of every file being a module is pretty darn beautful. Still trying to get my head around the syntax, though. Years of programming in c-like languages has really retarded my ability to grow.
