So, it seems (that thanks to GraBBeR's expert manipulation!) that I am now a NetCoder on StarChat.

That's excellent, I like the place and the people all seem quite good too.

The code, however, is suffering from a bit of neglect. It has been hacked on over many years by lots of different people of varying skills (take a look at dreamforge, you'll get what I mean)..

I have interesting plans, but it's going to be a long time before the rewards start getting reaped.

One of these plans has already been started (and kind of finished) - services now compile under g++ (C++) as opposed to gcc (C), meaning I can use STL to speed up development and lower overall code-size and maintenence cost.

Great fun, for IRC coder masochists, I guess...
