What am I working on right now? Probably the Sprog project [sourceforge.net].

I arrived home from OSCON yesterday morning local time. My luggage arrived 6 hours later. As some of you will know, I was the lucky winner of one of these Gibson guitars. It came in a soft zip up case, so I went to visit the Apple music store and got myself a hard shell case to protect it on the long journey home. Sadly, the protection proved insufficient
I opened the guitar case as soon as the courier delivered my luggage and was dismayed to find that the head of the guitar had snapped almost clean off. Strangely, the exterior of the case bears no signs of having been dropped or crushed - draw your own conclusions.
I can't say I'm surprised. I didn't want to check the guitar but was not allowed to carry it on. I didn't want to leave the case unlocked but was not allowed to lock it. The airline of course have disclaimed all responsibility. It's by no means clear that travel insurance will cover it since I didn't specify the item when I took out the insurance so their maximum payout is about half the replacement cost locally
As they say around these parts: bugger!
