Mailman, RSS and Mediawiki 

Working on integrating a mailing list with a wiki. The method that occurred to me was to use a RSS feed and a mediawiki plugin to bring the RSS into a side box on the front page of the site.
Unfortunately, Mailman doesn't produce RSS. However, a patch exists which technically works. A bit more hacking, and I've gotten it to actually useful (URL's now go to the actual articles now). There are still some limitations (RSS entries won't cross month boundaries) that I hope to work on, and the wikimedia RSS integration is not displaying articles with duplicate titles (as an email thread will have).

Configured Apache to redirect visitors to virtual hosts with many aliases to one domain name. Tried to find a generic way of doing it (using ServerName vs ServerAlias) but was unable to do so. So did it manually for each of the domains.

Game Forests 

Spent a bit of time today testing parameters for generating the in-game forest. I found some that look like they will work nicely, and have updated the world map:

There are not yet in world, but because I'm using the same data generator in both the map generator and the world generator, I can use the map as a testing ground.
This doesn't yet include tree heights or species. I haven't decided how to do those yet. An aspect of the species selection will be elevation, with random noise included as well.

OpenSim has recently gotten "MegaRegions", which allow for multiple regions running on one simulator to transfer avatars (and vehicles) without any delay. This will be very relevant to what I want to do. The developer who added this is building a 4KM racetrack.
