Remember me? Did you miss me?

Another world-beater I am sure (groan.)
You aren't ready for a release. I can say that with authority as I wrote
99% of the new code (and rewrote a lot of the old BS.) A lot of it is still
undocumented. And, of course, you and the other SVN dolts have locked the
repository. I guess this will be the typical arbitrary release of years
past. Good idea to release it without the email and IR updates. Those
following at home should realize that these two critical areas of mh are
botched beyond recognition (and have been for years.) I rewrote both (just
like sound, volume, display, X10, AP news, Internet Weather, Robosapien,
long file names, responses, IM, FroggyRita, Beta Brite, chimes, widgets, tk
interface, Eliza, DVD info, MH release info, Weather Items, weather upload,
event sounds, security, motivational quotes, top ten list, voice commands,
generic items, Winamp, etc., etc.) BTW, Winamp was just a patch (I recently
rewrote that to use the SDK and xAP/xPL, no httpq or WACtrl kluges
required.) Apparently all of that made certain "mh geniuses" uncomfortable.
Now they are attempting to block the rest of it. The release is meaningless
until my "final" updates and documentation are in place.
On the email, I am reminded of the security system in a Simpson's episode
that goes like:
"Emergency. Dialing police..."
"Busy signal. Shutting down..."
Something like that. The POP3 client in mh does this all day long.
"Couldn't get through to server, etc." "Giving up." You lose all n minutes
worth of messages. Worthless.
On the IR, just worthless. After I fixed a bug in the USB-UIRT SDK (the
thing that Girder is based on), I rewrote the entire mh IR layer. Universal
remotes beat the hell out of PalmPads (especially if you have more than 8
discrete commands!) I have hooks that tell user code when a button is
pressed and when it is released. You could write an mh video game with it.
Mh now makes Girder (and uICE and the others) obsolete. At least my version
of mh does. Now if a certain weasel will get out from under my feet,
perhaps I can get some of this stuff checked in...
Hope you all enjoy the new X10 scene support! The underlying packages are
from 2005. I submitted them last winter (to Bruce Winter) and they never
got checked in. Who knows why? I didn't care, so I just started uploading
everything myself. Then this Matt Williams idiot jumped in the way. Funny
I don't see him actually removing any of this stuff. He just wants to take
credit for it. Good luck!
