I'm going through a bit of a rough patch right now. Heather and I are trying to keep the divorce amicable, but now it's looking likely that we'll need to bring in adversarial lawyers.

Emotional turmoil like this does bad things to my productivity. I'm trying to keep work obligations and fun stuff balanced, and mostly managing, but hopefully my dear readers will understand if this diary is a bit thin these days.

I'm not asking for help - I have a great network of friends who are helping me through this. But maybe it wouldn't hurt to think good thoughts in my direction.


I've gotten some very nice feedback on my recent posts about fonts, especially my musings on juicing up the web presence of free fonts and free font developers. Thanks!

I've been making steady progress on my Cornu spline editor. It now handles both corner and smooth points, has undo, and can save (but not yet load back). There are still lots of rough edges in the code, so I'm not really feeling like making a release right now, but hopefully soon. When I do, I'm also likely to ask for help porting the code to other platforms so that I can get more feedback from graphic designers. Probably the most bang for the buck will be an OSX package with gtk and libart libraries, for use with the native X server.
