Flooterbuck lives!

Ages ago I mentioned Flooterbuck, the fork of infobot that I hack on occasionally. After a long dry spell and unverified claims of the project's demise, we've finally rolled a 1.2.2 release.

It's mostly bugfixes, and a bit of "let's get a release out so it doesn't look completely dead", but if you're running 1.2.1 and haven't been updating CVS it'd be a good time to update. I'm going to try to get nightly or weekly CVS snapshots available, although I still encourage tracking CVS if you can -- what's in CVS is what dagbrown and I are running as our bots, and modules tend to get out of date with the webpages they scrape pretty quickly, so CVS is the best way to keep things running smoothly for now.

mommy, who's Kibo?

Something odd just occurred to me out of the blue.

Now, nyxie and I don't want kids, but imagine a hypothetical couple online as much as we have been. IRC, LiveJournal, Usenet, flickr, and so on. That couple has kids. Ten years later or so, those kids will be able to search for what their parents wrote on the Internet before the kids were born!

Way too weird.
