Update: "best of" : TopThoughts
My online playground is [Synaesmedia], my weblog : http://blahsploitation.blogspot.com (although I have a couple of other more specialist ones like http://platformwars.blogspot.com) and my blogroll at PhilsBlogRoll
ThoughtStorms is my PersonalWiki : A place to jam with friends and adversaries from around the net. It was open to the public, but I closed it due to SpammingThoughtStorms. I hope this is temporary and I'll find a wiki-way to open it again.
I hate photos of me, so if I have to post one, might as well be somewhere interesting. (Atacama Desert, Northern Chile, Jan 2004)

Actually by and large your areas of interest match a lot with mine, but I am not into Social Justice as much as you do.
Cheers (and responded)
Are you taking a short (or long) break from SdiDesk? I do think the current version is a meaningful step forward. Too bad with the regular expression performance problem :(
Actually I got side-tracked on a number of other things : the new script for PhilsBlogRoll, some contract work for the government which I need to learn Zope / Plone for, some blog writing ... and I had this idea that I wanted to produce a DebugCast? ie. a ScreenCast? of me fixing a couple of the bugs that people had reported. The problem is that these debugging sessions turned out to be very long and crashed the machine when I tried to make them. Instead of fixing the bugs I've been trying to fix the screen-casting process. Not so productive.
I'm not taking a planned break exactly, but SdiDesk is not getting 110% of my free time as it was in the weeks immedietely before and after the last launch. But it's also not going into hybernation like it did last year either. New releases won't be long.
As for regexes. It's no big deal. I'm managing to do what I need with my own code.
I have moved house since I last corresponded. Saw exciting contribution in Sdi wiki and go have a look if you have not done so already. So can I expect a good diff in next release and that it will be available in early Jul05?
cheers from David the MS
Thanks, hadn't seen that. Yep, looks very interesting. Will check it out. (Once I've finished writing a toy programming language to show to my students tomorrow ;-) Hope the house move went OK. Also, are you checking out the new blog where I'm doing some public thinking about SdiDesk's future : http://smartdisorganized.blogspot.com/2005/06/bill-seitz-agrees-about-importance-of.html
Thought I get an update from you re: SdiDesk new release.
