Not dead yet!

I know, I haven't posted in a while. I've been otherwise occupied, by a whole host of other things:
  1. I've returned to working on my rewrite of MediaWiki into Java. The work is progressing much better this time. I've discovered some really glaring bugs, too, although probably most of them are uncommon code paths and so don't often affect anything. Unfortunately, the way I'm using phc as part of the translation process strips comments and destroys line number relationships, so it's difficult for me to back-relate the logic errors to the original PHP.
  2. Sims 3 has occupied some not insignificant part of my time lately. I'm not going to comment a lot here about the Sims; suffice it to say that I think this release is an interesting addition to the franchise with enough difference from Sims 2 (which I also enjoyed) to seriously capture my interest.Link
  3. It's the warm season again, and that means it's time for household projects of all stripes.
I just haven't had a lot to say here, and so I haven't said much.

See you all at Field Day.
