New IRClogs features
Also, I've been brushing up my IRClogs webapp recently; it now features:
Showing a configurable amount of context around search hits, so you can make more sense of search results without having to go back to the page for that day.
Matching phrases in the search results are now highlighted.
Each search result entry now links directly to the corresponding day-page entry.
See [this link](https://r0tty.org/irclogs/freenode/%23scheme/?q=(nick rotty) (base-date "2009-08-07") IRClogs&c=5) for an
example that shows off the features listed above. On the
non-user-visible side, there's now support for gzipped logs, which

I'm using feed2imap to get all those RSS and Atom feeds into my beloved MUA. As I run spam filtering, and split incoming email into Maildir folders on a small server at home (in a setup involving SpamAssassin, Postfix and scmail) and serve those folders over IMAP (using Dovecot), I've decided to add Maildir support to feed2imap, so I no longer have to place my IMAP password in feed2imap's plain-text configuration file.
As feed2imap is implemented in Ruby, this has provided me the opportunity to get my feet wet (or rather moist) in this language. Having a good grip on Python and Scheme, my one-word summary so far would be: Unsurprising!.
If you're interested in the patch, have a watch on the bug report — I'll attach it there once it's in a reasonable shape.
