Well, not much to report, generally. One problem kirby and I have had with COFFEE is within reach of a neat solution, all thanks to Python's neat string formatting operations. Thanks to John for pointing these out (and making the other sort of coffee).
Coventry, amazingly, has a LUG. I've been meaning to go to a meeting for months, but never seem to make it. I'm determined to be at the next meet on Tuesday. Someone punch me, or something, if I don't make it.
Life, etc.
The next few weeks are looking quite daunting, ATM. I might be moving house soon, but we've no idea when. Apart from work on COFFEE, and various other jobs at work, I need to make some serious progress on my PhD. The first job will be to tidy up some XML DTDs. I've been looking around for some nice tools to assist in writing DTDs, but never found anything much nicer than emacs with pgsl-mode (which doesn't seem to do syntax-highlighting for XML or XML DTDs). If anyone has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.

Right now, I'm not sure if everything's going to work out. Not least because my sleep cycle has been completley up-turned by the 'flu I had the other week. Grr!
