Yes, you're right.  It's great to be to a point where the content is
coming in so regularly.  It's interesting how decoupled the content
creation is from the technical website management, but there seems to be
a really good synergy.

I'm doing pretty well.  Most of my freetime coding has been sucked up by
Inkscape, as I'm heavily focused on the interface redesign work.  I
think this is going to take a few months to complete (at _least_) so
that is taking away coding time I had been devoting to dms previously.

However, the underlying architecture I'm using for dms (SOAP, etc.) I'm
also using for a project at OSDL, so I've been able to apply things I've
learned there for this.  Hopefully I'll be able to get something up and
usable before y'all write it off as vaporware!  (I may be too late!)
