More work on the new web site for my open source project. hope to throw it open during the next week. Things seem finally to be sorting themselves out.

Just read loic's article on SourceForge. I have to say that I agree wholeheartedly. I've watched SF since they founded it and must say that I am happy neither with their policies nor (over)regular maintenance cycle.

That said I am planning on listing my new project on SourceForge (but only as a placeholder for the real site). I am undecided as to whether to host the project on savannah or to use a few of my own conveniently deployed boxes. The project as a whole does really need a few boxes for development since the point is to tie together services on multiple machines. It would be useful to provide such a service to the other developers (and I am fairly sure that I can find very cheap hosting for it).

My car (Hector, 1969 MGB Roadster, Snowberry White) is running beautifully after being tuned. Not having to cringe every time the engine misfires means that I can finally relax and enjoy the ride. Going through London this weekend with the windows open (but the top up unfortunately) I got a good chance to hear the exhaust as it should be. Music to my ears.
