Murder Status
[19:59:18] matt [wronka.org]/Psi.generay I was working on http://matt.wronka.org/stuff/projects/murder/ and hoping to push out a second point release in March; obviously I didn't do that.

Murder, for those who aren't aware, was my attempt at bringing back finger(1) and modernizing it for our Web-first world. Finger and the finter protocol was an easy way for computer users to provide information about themselves and for other users to get a little bit more information about them or check their status. It's what you used before Friendster, which is what you never used before you used Facebook. The benefit of Murder over either of those is that it's designed to be descentralized (as was my Orkut-inspired [this is what you would use instead of Facebook if you are Brazillian, Indian, or a Finnish kid just learning about the lintu and mehilainen] Cork). Murder goes beyond those inspirations to be configured entirely from a shell account much as finger(1) was used, which also means it requires minimal permissions at the server level.

While I haven't pushed the point release, because of lots of craziness going on this summer, I might not push out the next release until August. Sorry for the delay. Hopefully I'll add some beneficial features for then.

[14:09:01] matt [wronka.org]/tkabber The N900 should come, pre-installed, the phone app, address book, the microb web browser, the application manager, settings applet and that's it. Why do I need to remove the stupidly installed installers for crap like Amazon and Facebook.com--and the AP news widget is a joke; why not just use the outdated RSS client?
