Hmm, long time no blog. I've been a bit busy with my study lately,
I guess. Which is good!
Today I have been checking out IMCom again, a CLI Jabber Client
written in Python. It has matured a lot since I last tried it, and is
really nice. Also, as I have dabbled a bit in Python, too, it looks very
I added the /mood command to publish my mood for fun. Cool!

As I am always trying out new things and new ideas, I am now
playing with a prototype of dj's pubsub component. It
follows the pubsub protocol as proposed in JEP 0024 with the
exception that it uses the pipetree:iq:pubsub namespace.
Now I needed an application for it and I came up with the
following: you can now publish your mood to the pubsub component on my
jabber server and have this mood show up in the Jabber World Map or elsewhere on
this site. To do this you need to download a little perl script (and a
.xml file for the configuration) in the download section. You can also
find the corresponding bot there.
Happy mood publishing!

In the last few days I cleaned up some of the code used to power
this site and decided to make them available. You can download the bots
used for interaction with Jabber and the necessary database creation
scripts here. There's a
small README as well.
Cool. Every first wednesday of June (like today) at 12:00h the
air-raid alarms are audio tested. Wheeeeeeeooooooow.

Today is the day. Twentyfive years on this planet. I'm feeling
quite old suddenly ;-). I got a wallet, some clothing and a O'Reilly book
on XML. Nice! We've got good weather here in the Netherlands (25 degrees
C, no clouds) so we're planning a BBQ. Party!!!
