PKTP is running for proof of concept and seems to work ok (if looking untidy) now with java based transaction formater

What I really need is some people to test it and see if it breaks. Individuals who can generate pgp/gpg signatures can test very easy. someone with Linux skills can set up franchise servers to test intra vault operations.

Help from programmers to make it more scalable would be welcome.

2 years done, 2 to go....
proof of concept for distributed electronic payments seems to work ok, but does not seem to have a visible market.
Ideally want to squeeze it all into a smartcard. The test server it runs on is not always up as it was supposed to have migrated to a PC104 board board but getting the boot loader to sit happy on a compact flash card is seemingly more difficult than expected.

Well I might be starting to get publicly active again. Yoiu may or may not be aware that ICANN/GNSO is looking at some new constituancy formations so I am pushing for an all inclusive general public one. Global Reach Internet Participation (GRIP). At the moment just a facebook group page to see what level of interest there is. I thourouly recomend *everyone*, yes even *YOU* go join express interest and be active.Get a GRIP

On a more personal note Uni is going remarkably well with commendations for both semesters so far, I am not sure why I am doing so well as I am sure I fluffed exams. I am not going to argue :)

Other projects progressing, although a little slowly.

another year, another entry. I see we have now gone from diaries to blogs.

I recently contemplated coming out of net seclusion to become active again, funny thing I noticed is how many others seem to have disappeared, perhaps all the old timers are watching what the new people do.

Feels like the stakes are going to be much higher this time.

well shorter intervals did not happen :) but my edumacation is going well, uni next year.

Not much else to really report on. Tcl/Tk is cool, if you have not already tried it then you should.

In middle of exams right now, (should be studying), so have not read any books for a couple of weeks, up side is after exams there are some new ones to read available.

I have both myspace and facebook now. Felt funny venturing into such reaches of the internet but did prove usefull in establishing a web of connections to people I have been bumping into, rather than people sharing technical or ideological common grounds.

As a general note on education, I would recomend to others that refreshing those brain cells is a good idea, even if you already seem to know a subject, going through the process of formalising knowledge is very usefull.

Next post, I guess I'll be in uni.
