What a whirlwind I've been living in. Last week was spring
break for the local HS' and my gf's college. On top of tons
of Jabber work the gf was
extremely demanding in my time. Then I had a few meetings
with some lawyers. They keep pressuring me to finish their
HUGE project sooner than scheduled. No chance of that
happening, I hated the entire project and started a rewrite
of it tonight. Networked the lawyers office the other
night, and today they called to complain about network slow
downs on their file shares. Guess I'll have to go check
that out tomorrow.
Well I redid the entire Jabber build system
twice. Finally I found a system that I think works nicely.
It uses sed to process the type and how to compile a module
from a file. It also stores your settings for later use.
I'm currently happy with it, but I have a few bad reports on
Solaris 2.7, maybe I can get access to a machine with that
on it tomorrow. On the future front, I've begun work on
cleaning out aim-t. Hopefully that nasty random race
condition gets hit out of the cob webs in the process. I
also began a stock ticker, and news transport (going to
borrow some of TCharrons code for this one). I'm doing them
in Python so I can force myself to learn the language, so
far the language it is quite cool. WOW! Just started
talking with a guy on AIM about adding a Skytel Pager
gateway and then client to Jabber. That would be amazing.
It was going to happen eventually, but sooner is always
better. On another front I'll be heading to Denver, CO for
Thur and Fri. We're having a little summit up there, should
be fun. I could have sworn I had something else on the
Jabber front. Oh well. Signing off.
