"I was born yesterday" (some years ago); can only make this statement once a year, I suppose.
Certified straznp, a long-term friend (as far back as high school). I remember chatting with nate about the benefits of free software, pgp and things of the sort quite a few years ago. We both had freenet (in the original sense of the term; the BBS-esque system written at CWRU) accounts back in the very early 90's and frequented the local BBS scene. Nate is now working for SGI on their Linux Kernel testing suite (recently mentioned on LWN and KT). We chatted for a bit about copyright assignment things this morning.
I've been working quite a bit with phpWiki from an internal perspective; Wiki's are an excellent resource for developing your thoughts, creating outlines for projects and things of the like. Have thought of a couple useful features I'd like to implement in phpWiki if given the time.
Talked yesterday with snippy about one of the ideas I had; he took to it happily, so it may pan out. dexter goes back to class soon; heard he bailed out the local school when they encountered netware issues a day or so ago.
Have been hacking on Spruce a fair amount, though not for the last few days. Working on spinning off some of the code from Spruce which might otherwise be abandoned when one of the upstream libraries obtains sufficient support to meet Spruce's needs. 0.7.4 is out now; the release after 0.7.5 will probably have an additional chunk of my work. fejj is an excellent maintainer.
Have a few new projects going. Also took some time to visit the local library three times in the last month. They have an excellent CD selection and, of course, books. :)
