And The Dog Ate My Homework

After relocating from London to Buenos Aires my HD broke. Then, the pile of DVDs and CDs got lost including the OSX rescue (finding Mac install DVDs on christmas to borrow was quite a challenge) and my pre-flight backup DVDs were gone there too. Oh, and my hidden TrueCrypt volume got trashed by stupidly adding things to the outer volume (paranoia doesn't pay.)

Luckily the outlines of upcoming posts were stored on Blogger, and I remember most of the code's ideas. I'll try to move on from this.

Besides that hiccup things are doing very well and even got a suntan.

Backup now to a pendrive, to some DVDs, to an external HD, to Gmail, everywhere. Use TrueCrypt, but wisely, get yourself some subtle warning if you do the hidden volume trick! (And at least write-protect the drive.)

I'm looking forward to your future posts.
There are a lot of comet servers out there:

But none of them are in pure C (except for the commercial and closed source liberator).

I've started work on one using libevent, but it's still in the very early stages.
