Long time no entries. I think I'll set up a log/diary on my own server, I might have more motivation to keep things up to date there . . . or not. Whatever.
So we've been in Santa Barbara since early April. It feels good to be here - things are just generally nice. The beach is great ;) and the water's getting warmer.
TOOLS conference here this month. Bummer, it's all about .NET and Eiffel - two worthless (in my opinion) technologies. Worthless because . . . well, Eiffel's a polished turd, and .NET's just evil. Miguel de Icaza evidently will be giving one of the keynotes. His inexplicable fixation on .NET is just sad. So, here's a conference in my own backyard on a topic I'd ordinarily like (the object orientation and all that), and the focus of the conference sucks.
