I worked on my python replacement for rsync. Made some more good progress, in particular I refined the protocol a bit and made the routine which reads the response to each command that's sent.
Showed up and wondered where everyone was so figured out how to get Jonathan's loaner card to work with my laptop (used the wvlan_cs module). Encountered my first "legacy free" (no bios) laptop... not very fun. Mused about knowledge managment applications, was pointed to WikiWiki type apps as a starting point.
