Sooooo... No luck attempting to work with Mono. I just don't have the time to read so many emails a week.

I did get Visual Studio.NET installed on my computer, however. So I might play with C# (1, 2) that way some. Who knows?

On a different topic, I still want to get involved in a non-academic, non-commercial development project. This has lead me to look more at doing stuff with WU|ACM. I am a member of our local student chapter of ACM and we have a good sized library of books in our lounge. And our webmaster thought it might be good to do a library management program with PHP on our website. Well, I know that nobody else is going to do it soon, and I still like working on ACM (even though I'm no longer pres), so now I'm thinking of doing something like this to replace my attempt at working on Mono.

There won't be nearly as much work just trying to read emails. And I can even meet with people and not just talk via email (which is always nice).

And it seems at least one other person is interested. He is, after all, the one who's talked about it the most. I previously thought of doing a whole website portal system to integrate message board, library management, email system, and other stuff. But now that seems like a lot of work. That may be a summer job.

We do have a good phpBB message board (finally). It's efficient, nice looking, and flexible. So I just came up with the idea of using the user database from that for our library system. And why can't we use that for an emailing system? Hell, we could take phpBB's MySQL database and run with it! Ahhhh, the excitement! :)

Stay tuned for more!


(P.S. You may find this funny. I know I do!)
