I should put out a new release of Dia soon. The next
release will be the first release as an official part of the
GNU project, which is pretty good. Lots of nice user
interface improvements. Just one more feature before the
release 🙂

Over the weekend, we pulled through a few CAT5 cables in
the house. By putting the cable through the wall cavity
there is no coax running through the doorways anymore. This
should also reduce the problems of trying to find out which
computer’s network card has gone crazy when the network
stops working.

The Sun open office source release should be
interesting. Some of the details are still being thrashed
out, but things look good. In a worst case senario, the
code will be released under GPL, so we can grab all the good
features and integrate them into existing apps 🙂
