Finished reading a book called Marcus the Roman, about a roman who happens to be in Jerusalem at the time of the crucifiction of Christ. The book provides an interesting speculation (its pure fiction) about how the events at the time may have been experienced by some of the contemporaries, and is as such very interesting.

Lots of stuff at work, so much to do, so little time. I think I need to learn myself to take the necessary time to prioritize my actions on a given day. Friday I fixed a bug in the search engine which has bugged me for a long time, so that was positive.

I'm involved in a software process workgroup at work, where I have been made responsible for constructing a software requirements specication template for use in our company. We have agreed to use the basic layout from Karl Wiegers "Software requirements", but I'm wondering what's a "typical" amount of standardization in that regard in software companies in general. I guess it's really just a matter of trying some alternatives until you find something that works in the specific context of your organization.

We have started playing some quake arena at office, it's good with some fast-paced action once in a while :-)

Oh, and I bought Dead Man on dvd - Neil Youngs soundtrack for that movie is so cool, so cool.

Btw, I think lkcl's and others work on dce/rpc support is great. I think of their work as one of the few examples of a really constructive effort to increase the long-term viability of Linux as a server platform.
