Started work on my guides for the impatient today. First up: email encryption. The guides are intended to give a brief introduction to a topic, but cover everything you need to know to use it effectively. They are not intended "for dummies": if I don't explain a technical detail, it's because I don't think one needs to know it. Note that the PGP guide is a work in progress and is not intended for public consumption yet, but please let me know what you think.

Judas: If you don't hate CVS, you're not trying hard enough :) Subversion seems to be the most promising replacement, but it's not ready yet.

jmason: I agree that recentlog scales poorly. I think that ideally it should present entries in chronological order, starting from your last recentlog view or to an arbitrary date. I currently read diaries chronologically to avoid being confused by backreferences, but I'm wearing out my arrow keys :)

Just finished Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintainance. Recommended. Strongly.
