modern plagues

Last year I read The Coming Plague by Laurie Garret and it scared the hell out of me. Today I saw this WHO travel advisory that reminded me of it. Not being an alarmist, I took it in stride, but it made me wonder about the kinds of new diseases that we'll see in the next few years, and how fast they will spread. We definitely need some new thinking on how to approach disease and health care in general.

more on the spaces storage changes


"Good news, everyone!"

Okay, so the basis of the new spaces storage system changes seems to be working, basically within the bounds that I wanted. The next couple of days will be spent integrating the new code back into the program, and in the process trying to optimize (memory-wise) things in the interfaces between the storage system and the UI. After that, UI changes and bugfixes and an initial beta release will be ready (no, I'm not forgetting about IMAP!).

Note to self: remember IMAP. :-)

I'll post another update as soon as the integration is done.

ps: Futurama rocks.
