Wow.. I hate working late, and last night was no exception. I finally stumbled out of the office at 11:30 PM. I arrived at 8:30 AM. Ugh. HOWEVER, I finally got my Matrox Corona Frame Grabber card and my Matrox G200 AGP card to work in Dual Monitor mode, AND I was able to capture live video into my development environment. Wicked cool. I LOVE having cool toys to play with :)

Before that stuff, I had a pretty mundane day. Finally patched up the last of 3 customer databases I had to fix. (Why do BLOB files have such a propensity for getting currupted???) Worked some more on JabberIM. The client is really starting to come together. I still need to tweak the graphics I got from Tom @ Webb to deal with transparency issues, but otherwise, the thing is Really starting to look slick. AIM and MSN beware. I got a MUCH improved message history working in Winjab, and it's ready to be merged into the JabberIM codebase as well. I talked with temas about other ideas for displaying message history, and he had some good thoughts, but I need more time to implement them yet. Maybe post 1.0 stuff.

I feel pretty good about both the JabberIM and WinJab clients... they are both coming along nicely. The Flush meetings on Friday went well, and we hashed out tons of remaining issues. I'm still waiting for some JUD portions to get coded out on the server side, and am eagerly awaiting the file transfer (oob) stuff.

Today I'm hoping to plow through the rest of Andre's comments about JabberIM and deal some more with my Frame Grabber and CNC machine...maybe the phone will be relatively silent and actually let me work today... I can hope.

Last weekend was busy but fun. I had a Koinonia team meeting on sunday where I'm playing my guitar for a retreat on Mar 24-26. Afterwards I showed off WinJab to a good friend and blew him away with ideas Jabber World Domination Theory :) Finally cleaned the apartment on Saturday afternoon, my bathroom and kitchen were beyond disgusting, and actually got to the gym Sat nite to climb. Full day. Sunday we had an amazing Footsteps Reunion after church (30+ kids showed up) and had a good meeting afterwards.
