Been quite busy lately. $Dayjob is getting even more ramped up, somewhat due to the buzz created from the merger/acquisition but also simply because open source in IT is expanding like a fiend in and of itself and Covalent/SpringSource is a known leader in that area. There was, of course, ApacheCon EU 2008 which was a total success IMO, but also a whirlwind event for me. Within the ASF there is a lot going on as well, both regarding the various projects but also administratively as well. On the personal side, there also seems a rush in people contacting me to do some keynotes, some outreach as well as join some advisory teams. Factor in just the busyness with also having a social life and a family (and their social life - as the boys get more involved, Mom and Dad get quite busy *grin*) and I'm likely busier now than ever. And I'm loving it.

When I updated to Leopard 10.5.2, X-Lite no longer worked, so I needed to purchase eyeBeam. Anyway, the latest version of eyeBeam is out: http://tinyurl.com/2ehbqp. So is another build of X-Lite, which may, or may not, work with 10.5.2.

So it's official: Blu-Ray has beaten HD DVD. Like so many others, I've held off buying either format, since I would almost certainly pick the wrong one. And, like so many others as well, we looked at purchasing a PS3 not so much for the gaming aspect, which would have been a nice "extra" (which is ironic as all get out for a gaming system), but as a subsidized Blu-Ray player. At least both technologies were pretty well matched; I've heard valid technical arguments for both formats being "better" for HD video requirements, and so whichever way the market went, for those of us who still like watching DVDs (and not downloaded content), we'd be pretty happy. The bad part was the waiting, which is now over. Of course, the real question is whether it's too late, and whether those people like myself, who prefer using bandwidth for other things than downloading huge media content, have our days numbered...

The latest Leopard upgrade (10.5.2) is out... and I am happy. So far, it seems to have addressed all the weird and troublesome problems I've been having.

No Leopard for me... at least not yet.

I'm holding off on upgrading to Leopard, at least for the foreseeable future. Yeah, the real and potential incompatibilities do worry me, but the real reason is simpler. Chances are very good that I will be upgrading to a MacPro from my Quad G5. That will, no doubt, cause at least some upgrade issues. Why handle these twice when I can lump them both together and do basically 2 upgrades but suffer the ills of a single one.
