Slogging along with this new stuff. I both love and hate this time -- lots of new things to chew on and make more sense of the world, but I'm not getting anything done. It'll pass, but it's frustrating.
Setup a jabber server today so I (using gabber) can reliably talk to people on msn messenger (work). Very cool stuff -- relatively easy setup, and it pretty much just works. Except...the aim gateway works only for about 5 minutes, andthen I get a nice message from the AOL IM server saying that I'm using an unsupported client so they're booting me. Bastards.
Wrestled with reading server config info from a childinit handler in mod_perl for way too long today, on my own time. blech.
These JBoss folks are kicking ass and taking names. Sweet.
Figured out that netbeans <-> xemacs thing - tres cool.
