Been a while since I posted a journal. I was going to post something early last week about the hectic socialising with london.pm over the previous weekend, but I forgot on Monday and then on Tuesday the World Ended and since then it's seemed inappropriate to post on such trivial matters.
I'm not going to talk about the attacks or the (potential) responses as a) you've read it all elsewhere and b) my views tend to get me in a lot of trouble. I'll just say that it's been ten years since I went on an anti-war demo and I've already got an email telling me about one in London on Saturday.
In other news, I've returned to working on NMS. I released a first draft of FormMail the other day and now I've turned my attention to WWWBoard. This is by far Matt's most ambitious script and I think that perhaps it was a little beyond his capabilities. The whole thing is hugely overengineered - it's one of those scripts that's so complex that it's impossible to hold all the details in your head at the same time. Huge amounts of of simplification are in order, but luckily I've just bought a copy of Martin Fowler's Refactoring so I'm putting his ideas to good use. Expect a first release some time next week.
There's a london.pm technical meeting tonight. Lots of interesting talks planned. I'll report back tomorrow.
 Yeah! Like the others weren't
