Linux on the Surface Book is proving to be too unstable for my needs right now so I'll go back to running Linux using VirtualBox on Windows. Long term I'll be upgrading to a laptop that runs Linux out of the box.
Doh, I guess the markdown parser doesn't do xmpp type of links.
FYI, I've decided to go ahead and split some of my project discussions into their own chat channels. Details forthcoming for those who care to follow along.
I wondered if or when this might happen... - https://www.engadget.com/2017/12/15/blackberry-app-store-closes-in-2019/
Lots to do still on this but it's a clean start. I'll continue to iterate on this over time and make it more flexible. I'd love any XMPP users out there to kick it around and provide me some useful feedback.
I re-kajiggered the XMPP variant of nuttybot and it's now up and running xmpp:email@example.com. Source code is live at https://code.monkeystew.net/thrrgilag/pnut-xmppbot. Discussions in the usual chat room [monkeystew.org].
If I can manage to squeeze a little more time in this next week I'll get some stuff pushed out to my code repos. Hopefully.
