I just got back from a one-day Artifex staff meeting in Las Vegas. Tonight's entry will be light.
Thanks to everyone for the positive feedback on my diaries. I am having fun writing them. Similarly, I hope David's self-proclaimed thin patch is shallow and brief. I particularly enjoy the interplay between his blog and mine.
gary: your work on mod_virgule and Advogato is very much appreciated, but please don't feel that you have an obligation. If your hands still need to heal, give that priority. But of course if you do some work, I will be happy.
Mamading Ceesay wrote me a nice email calling me on my inability to find references from Psyco. It turns out that Psyco is inspired by the Fabius compiler. I'm not directly familiar with this work, but I do know Peter Lee from my ML days. He's done some ML performance work, including a rather interesting Web server written in ML. It's good that Armin is reading the literature.
A couple more haiku
AFPL: free for use and change / but if you charge money / we get a
SCSL: we give you the source / but we control the process / for better or for worse
(I slightly prefer these versions over the strict 5/7/5 variants)
