Random Developments

So I was actually rather productive this weekend.

I accomplished at least 3 separate things:

  1. At the prompting of Richard Clamp factored the log retrieval code from SVN::Log::Index out into a new module, SVN::Log. Still waiting for his feedback on the final SVN::Log interface before I let it lose on CPAN though.
  2. Finished reviewing PDFs of the first 5 chapters of the book, and made copious comments on the stuff that was unexplainably broken. If I haven't said it before, I hate Framemaker, it mangles DocBook in ways previously unknown to man.
  3. Wrote GenX4r, a Ruby wrapper for Tim Bray's genx library. It's my first real work with Ruby, but it seems to work, and was quite a bit of fun to write.

Plus, I did laundry, since we now have a washer and dryer.

Oh, and Chris hooked me up with a GMail account, (rooneg@, for the curious), and it's damn cool. I'm using it for FreeBSD mailing lists just to get a feel for it. So far I'm quite impressed.
