Here are some of the things I'm working on:

rfbproxy is a program that I use for demos at shows. It captures X sessions and plays them back, using VNC.

It can also create scripts for rfbplaymacro, which can be used for scriptable control of VNC sessions.

Similar to VNC and screen, vtgrab is a program for monitoring the console of another machine. It's part of a master plan for having complete remote control of computers. (Jens Wagner's x0rfbviewer is the next step.)

Patchutils is a package containing some programs for manipulating patch files: interdiff is a program that creates an incremental patch from two patches against the same thing; filterdiff is for extracting (or ignoring) patches from patch files.

The Selfdocbook is a thing I wrote while learning DocBook (in turn in order to write this); the twist is that it includes its own DocBook markup in an appendix. It's a lot harder to do in DocBook than in LaTeX..

I wrote a mail summary program, but Jules made it a lot nicer.

I also maintain some drivers for Linux.

There are lots of things that I'd like to do if I only had the time.

While playing around with some DocBook XML tools for Red Hat Linux, I thought I'd actually use them and write an article.

Released notary-0.0.2 today. Now all my emails get automatically signed and timestamp-corroborated (thanks to an early-adopter). Cool.

Just released vtgrab 0.1.1: now it's possible to actually control the machine whose console you are observing, 'just like' you're at the console (for very limited 'just likeness').

Got communications going with the jazPiper, albeit unreliably. I'm stuck at how to get the thing to switch directions from reverse to forward, so at the moment I can only send one command to it before the game's over. :-(

Today I received a jazPiper MP3 player in the post, two days early! I'm going to try to write a driver for it before Wednesday, so that I can surprise Laszlo with it before he even expects me to have started..

First problem: it needs some batteries.

I have to move out all of the furniture in the living room in order to make way for a carpet that's coming on Monday. That will be fun..

Read some scary things yesterday about the (already scary) RIP bill. I think I understand what a key-signing key is for now. Maybe I should make one. The trouble with doing that is that my fingerprint will change, and so I'll have a bunch of business cards with the wrong information on. Plus, I'll lose the signatures on my existing encryption key. Grr.

It's table soccer time, but Jules has gone back to Holland. Now what?
