Coding: Found a bit more time to work on the Java EnsEMBL API. It's now connecting to the database and I can fetch a few object types. Hopefully have it complete enough to be useful for me in the next few days, then I can concentrate on getting it ready to demonstrate to the other EnsEMBL developers. Guess it'll be a while before the project really moves away from Perl, though.

Excursions: Went to the Imperial War Museum on Saturday. Lots and lots of aeroplanes (plus various other kinds of vehicle). One of the exibits was an old (late 1940s, I think) radar guidence system for an anti-aircraft gun. How did they do that without microprocessors? If it were designed today, you can bet that it would be running NT or somesuch.

WebDAV: Had a browse through the specs (plus the delta-V versioning protocol), and it looks good. Looking forward to subversion even more now.

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
