Time, Time, Time

I'm glad to see that my recent post on a 0.7.5 release actually got a few people talking. I just wanted to update everyone as to my current status:

  • I'm teaching CSci 297-10 at GWU this Fall, which is basically a second job. Most of the time I spend not at work is spent either teaching or preparing lectures or projects. I haven't even started grading.
  • My day job is really heating up, and will only be getting worse as we get closer to Spring.
  • The last tidbit of time is spent with my new band, jamming and preparing to do some small gigs.

If you can't read between the lines, my schedule is chock full. I love Camino. It will not die on my watch, but it may have to remain slow until the new year. I emplore the people who have stuck with it so far to continue, especially those who have contributed patches. We will be driving to 0.8, I just can't promise when. Your work does and will matter.

FWIW, I love teaching. My class of 16 people is full of students that (surprisingly) seem interested in what I've been doing for the last six years of my life. I tell you, though, a 2.5hr lecture is mentally (and physically) exhausting. I'm spent by the end, and then I get to spend all week preparing to do it again.

Can't wait for the hurricane. It's pointed right at Dulles! Good times!
