Things are hectic, but relatively quiet. Xcode 1.5 looks like something I ought to start using, and everything on both my Macs is updated to the latest bleeding-edge version (well, not everything, I haven't the heart to update Fink today), an activity which has burned away most of my leisure time.
Since Shtoom seems to be dead in the water, I've been trying to get a grip on Twisted and its built-in SIP support. Anyone who has managed to get a very simple SIP client running is encouraged to drop me a line, since even after perusing the unit tests for the packages I've been unable to cobble one together. And no, I don't want to use a C++ toolkit, I want something I can hack a state machine in with vim in a blink of an eye.
- Windows Service Pack 2 breaks raw sockets - which means nmap, for one, doesn't work. Bruno also complains of partially broken (or at least incredibly slow) WPA support, so I'm definetly not looking forward to upgrading. There are plenty of other problems, if you are thinking of plunging in.
- Palm.net is dead - about time, if you ask me.
- WAP is dead too, so they say. If it were me, I would call Baron Samedi for a second opinion.
- Airport Express as an NTP server. Real neat.
- Erik has built a cool Sherlock channel that turns it into an RSS reader. Yes, I agree that's what it should have done in the first place.
- Marc Lyianage releases PHP 5.0.0 for Mac OS X. Definetly something I'll be picking up soon, no matter what the zealots say.
- Mono got an update too. Not terribly important for me right now - I don't feel the need to boogie in C#.
- The new RIM handheld - if the photo stayed up this long, then it's probably safe to link to it.
- The BugMeNot Mozilla Extension (via Bruno). Guerrilla browsing at its best.
- Pixels. Lots.
