I have finally my own chat server. The light weight and clusterable ejabberd is up and works fine. Even made it federate with jabber.org. Erlang is an esoteric language I am not familiar with but it looks quite good.
Trying out Python and converting stuff from Python to Java. I wish Jython had asyncore it would make my life so much easier, but then again Java threading is quite useful as well. If I learn enough python I might even try making a Worldwind Python scripting plugin and switch RAT to numeric python. SAR processing in Python will be fun.
Worldcup is exciting as usual. Italy will be pretty tough to beat for Australia. Germany is thrashing Sweden.
Had my driving lesson today. Nearly perfected my U-turn hopefully will be doing 3-point turns next. Finally freedom in the wide open places of Australia.
