colobus 1.2

it has been over two years since the last release of colobus, my nntp server written in perl that runs on top of ezmlm archives. this new release just incorporates a couple of accumulated bug fixes and tiny features.

i have a proof-of-concept version that uses a mysql backend. i’ll get that code folded in and cleaned up and make a 2.0 release some day.

the videos of the sawstop device are pretty cool. it’s a device that cuts the power and puts on the brakes to the saw blade when something with the wrong electrical properties (like a finger) touch it. (via boing boing.)
