Status, and future ideas

The last few days I've just been cleaning up the existing LiveJournal code and preparing to port the code from Unix/Apache/MySQL to WinNT/IIS/MS-SQL. No, no ... I won't move LiveJournal to Windows, but another company that wants to license the code runs on Windows, so I thought it'd be a good idea to make the code portable, in any case.

Now for some fun news... I just emailed this to evan and he agrees it'd be fun....

1) give paid users email aliases @livejournal.com .....
2) setup cool crap like reply-talkid-uid-authcode@post.livejournal.com to reply to comment #talkid from user #uid authorized against a authcode.
3) setup posting like username-password@post.livejournal.com to post to LJ (some people have requested this to make it easier to post from cell phones....)
