Since I announced that this would shut down, there have been about half a dozen comments, but no-one willing to put any time into it, so I will probably pull the plug in about a month or so.
Proceeding well without my input (such is the benefit of larger projects) although I need to do a couple of minor modifications to the wiki and tools site.
Erm... it's still there. I need to remap the shortlink function, but otherwise I think it's fine.
Books (reading) -
Need to update my list.
Books (writing) -
Cycling book Will Not Happen. Sci-fantasy one isn't looking all that likely either.
Infection WILL NOT BLOODY HEAL. Guts > 90% functional. Unlikely to be able to drink if I go on more meds.
Network infrastructure -
Entering Interesting Times.
Now has some MP3s uploaded; nevla is doing some work on it. I've recently recoded parts of the site to mitigate the apalling speed performance it had lapsed into.
Functional; LJCards will be discontinued shortly. The whole could probably stand some optimisation, but it's not a priority.
Needs major work done on it shortly; will be converted to a far more powerful XML-based CMS; permissions system needs to be torn out and rebuilt because it's dog slow. Site in general will be better optimised. RSS viewer will be rebuilt from scratch according to feedback.
Feature requests welcome.
I'll probably wait for my laptop to return before I start this though.
Resolve / Resolutions -
Conclusions to the "How to be myself" essays at the start of the year have proven very useful.
Feeling fairly happy in mysel(f|ves) now. Mrowl.
Erm yeah, I nominally have one, don't I? Not hugely demonstrative but that's the model that seems to work for me.
News Aware -
Will be delayed by lack of available time on my part (and of others), but Will Happen; IPP recode will be specifically geared to supporting this, and should thus make site development simpler.
UPD Syndic8 covers a lot of this ground - we need to work out what we can do that doesn't duplicate effort.
