I made a new release of CKS my openPGP Keyserver. I'm going to mark it 0.2.5 very soon, which is the version I've designated as Beta. It's not there yet though, I just released 0.1.3. I've learned allot about project development from that project. I've been surprised by how long it's taken me almost two years now (thousands of hours). Certainly something I will keep in mind before I start my next free software project.

This release is a good step though, because it's able to do full syncing with the other pks server networks. It was very nice to see its first syncs show up on the MRTG es keyserver graphs.

It's still not ready for other non-developers to run though.


ehhh... still working for an IBM bp. Still living in Miami. Still going out to SoBe nearly every weekend.

I finally started using mozilla for my email. It's catching 400+ spam messages a day for me - nice! That saves me allot of time. I'm using enigmail too, which rocks. It's very nice to have easy to use PGP mail support.

I set up my own mailman mailing list server, and my own cvs server. That's helping allot with my productivity too.


I had to architect an LDAP solution for some customers so I created a support community for them. Specifically LDAP in higher ed. I set up a mailing list w/ archives and got a bunch of people running openLDAP in higher ed to joing up. I'm trying to get everyone to share code and war stories a la the MIT AI lab in the 60's. If you're not running LDAP in higher ed please don't join. But, if you are running LDAP in high ed, please do join.

Due to advogato's inspiration (thanks raph) I'm still very interested in understanding on-line communities and how to build vibrant and thriving ones.
