mostly because the world needs a easy to impliment jabber server.
I want a reliable Jabber server with conference support and pluggable authentication that doesn't crash when someone looks at it funny.

I chose "other" because I'd like all the above to get done. I need to work on fostering community better. Giving people commit access, etc. :-/
I would have chosen DJabberd, but since you're posting this poll it sounds like you've already decided you need something else for a bit.
Would have chosen OpenID, but I don't think it will take up copius free hacking time.
So I ended up with Memcached since I think it has been the most unloved of all the choices the past six months. :)
Dude. I really don't know what any of those are... but they all sound sexy to me. ;-p Just do what makes you happiest as I'm sure they could all be pretty fun. And btw, do you have any single friends who do this kinds stuff in their spare hack time, too?? LOL!! *Hah - I'm crackin' myself up* Oh man, this computer geeky stuff always gets me going. ;-)
Oooh - the OpenID one looks rad! Great idea!
And how wonderful are you putting up a quick reference list?! ;-) Thanks!

our fusefs/p2p idea on the car ride home from monterey.. :)
P2P FUSE (i think it's caps?) sounds very cool.
I toyed with the idea of extending the bittorrent module to handle writes but that was way over my head.

Definitely merge patches from the community, which means memcached in this case. Otherwise the community goes away. Everything else will be the same if you put it off another week, but putting off patches blocks other people.

This of course is a lesson to myself as well, as there are pending LogJam patches I haven't looked at. :(

Yeah, I normally do, but this one is a megapatch of twenty things in one (for memcached) that I'm not looking forward to separating. And I'm against mass-merging tons of changes on principle. And I also just kinda suck at svn/svk still. Nowhere as good as Artur, for instance.
Why don't you have the guy send you 20 different patches, instead? People are usually willing to put in the work, if it actually makes it more likely that their stuff will get in.

You could just ask the requester if he/she wouldn't mind re-sumbitting it as separate patches to make testing easier. I learned, eventually. :)
That's why I said memcache as well...
Real seach for your journal. If paid only, let it work on any journal please (sometimes I want to dig something up on a friends journal).

What use is software that only runs on Windows?
memcached- because IMO it is the dopest technology, and i would think the most widely used as well-
Seconded. memcached has become an essential technology to many people now (myself included), and further improvements and tweaks will probably come in very handy. One thing I'd like to see it handle is the thing with the buckets and different item sizes (can't think of a better way to put it, but it's when you can't store something successfully even though it 'should' work).
I dare say a lot of people would even contribute to further development on memcached if necessary :)

I think all of those sound boring.
I think you ought to figure out what to do to make people stop defecting from LJ to Myspace, because I hate having to ever look at that piece of crap.
As stupid as this sounds, I think it's the music playing and the large pictures that people are able to make. I also think that it has to do with the fact that to view said pictures you have to create an account. God I hate that place.
Yup, free hosting for 10mb jpegs plus turning the HTML cleaner off would have done it a year ago. Now people are on crapspace "because everyone else is."
Although Brad did have the right idea like 4 years ago with this
. Too bad I made him limit it to 18+-year-olds. :P.
"I think you ought to figure out what to do to make people stop defecting from LJ to Myspace, because I hate having to ever look at that piece of crap."
Ahahahaha. Myspace drives me insane too. So very true.
I say hack on brackup and make it encode data in files and use pp/sb to backup. Then I'd use it.
Failing that, LJ search
Ahh janrain, that's Larry Drebes' (of 411 and rocketmail fame) company. I still don't get why they didn't hire me...
