Considering everything that I could have done this weekend, I got a lot done around the house. There is a really spiritually and emotionally rewarding feeling after baking some cookies or cleaning up a room.

I've been thinking about Konfabulator this weekend a bit. It uses the Spidermonkey Javascript runtime from the Mozilla project as it's core. I think it's worth noting that we are seeing more and more fruits of open source code on the Mac OS X platform all the time now. Open Source seems to be enabling innovation, and writing something like Konfabulator from scratch would proabably have been a much more daunting task without the ability to embed the Javascript runtime. I seem to be seeing people note on a regular basis that Mac OS X is the best platform for innovation by independent developers now, and open source code is one big reason for that.

Google Buys Pyra. Woah.

Sorry about the lack of updates this week. The port that my admin tool is running on is blocked at my new office, and I haven't had time to reconfigure things so that I can get to it. Lots going on offiline, I really feel like I've gotten myself off to a fresh start this year thus far, although I still need to work a bit more on those pesky resolutions.

I walked in on the tail end of this conversation last night while out at a charity kickoff for Kate's Club. It's an organization that I think I'm going to get involved in in some capacity. Moral of the story is that most people do not like to be told they look like elves.

Today is my last day.

I'm having an interesting week so far, not free of stress by any means. Over the weekend, I played paintball for the third time in as many months. It's an addictive adrenaline rush, and has left me wondering why it hasn't taken off more than it has. I followed that up with a softball practice on Monday for the team I joined for this spring, "Team Bad Guy." So I've been a bit sore the last couple of days, these sports use different muscles than my normal gym workouts. Aside from that, lots of house maintenance tasks this week, and a lot of worrying about finishing tasks properly at my current position before moving on to the new one on Monday.
