Quick SLIME note: the SBCL port now uses SERVE-EVENT instead of threads, which means it'll work on platforms other than x86 Linux. Or should do, anyway.
Helmut has done some rather neat stuff for finding function callers/callees in the CMUCL port. Next job (next SLIME job, I mean) is to port that and put it in SB-INTROSPECT.
Picked up Neal Stephenson's Quicksilver in Borders this evening (link to Amazon.co.uk because the official site is some useless popup thing). I was moderately amused to find it in the Fiction section, not the SF section with all his previous works - yes, including the Steven Bury stuff. Immediate impression after 50 pages: his editor should have said a few words about the purple prose. After 100 pages either it's settled down a bit or I've got used to it, though.
