Jump breaks? What?

Long time no see! Happy way-belated New Year's and whatnot.

So I just discovered that blogger finally supports jump breaks. This is the stuff that some news sites/blogs have where they say "More after the break" and there's a link with "Read more" or something. I've always wanted that for this blog, because coding stuff tends to take more page real estate than I want it to, and now I can. So, maybe I'll post more. Who knows.

I've been up to various things since the last I posted. Some more latte, lots of coding.... In particular, I've been working on my own custom forum software. Its purpose is not to be more sophisticated or even as sophisticated as, say, phpBB, but to be lightweight, quick, and with nice features. It's tailored to forum-based role playing, which I do with my friends. To this end, it loads new replies to topics in real time (more or less) and supports drafts of posts, so you never have to worry about losing your post again!

I also finally went through and abstracted the network stuff from my series tracker, so I'm one step away from freeing the thing from my old, crappy TCP library which it had been entrenched in. (Also, it should be a bit more efficient and quick, though not noticably so.)

I'm sure there's more, but that's enough for now

PS: The more on the jump breaks here:
