Week Ending 24-Jan-2010
Well, not Led Zeppelin, but seems Carl has disappeared into his cave again apparently spending all his time on redoing the rebol.com website. Meanwhile developers are chomping at the bit (terrible pun) for bugs to be fixed. What we need is a hero as depicted here but can Carl really do everything by himself? The R3 chat system, his own source code repository, and now the website redesign seems just another distraction as though he does not want to finish R3.
A long awaited upgrade took place ... and now you can no longer lose messages. Instead you get to stare at a blocking gray box ...
On the bright side, you can now set all the posts as "read" so that they are no longer "red".
On the network schemes side, Graham ( yes, speaking of myself in the 3rd person ), has created a new fax:// scheme to interact with hylaFAX, and also a imap4 protocol. Since he doesn't use Imap, it would be nice if someone tested these schemes out.
There's also some initial work done on using Amazon SDB which seem to work.
