I’ve started on my next Ludlum – though it’s not really a pure Ludlum since I seem to have run out of those :p This one’s a collaboration between Robert Ludlum and Gayle Lynds and is the start of a new series called “Covert One”. It’s called “The Hades Factor” and so far seems to be sort of a mix between a Robin Cook medical thriller (though I’ve never read Robin Cook :p) and Ludlum’s own espionage stuff. I’ve only got to about chapter three but it hasn’t hooked me yet – or maybe I’ve been reading too many Ludlum’s and need to switch to something else 🙂

I’ve also started work on Blog 7.0 🙂 So far I’ve been able to complete work on the lists management functions since there’s going to be many lists to be managed – there are the include/exclude lists for posters and then the new remote comments facility brings up another set of include/exclude lists. Then of course, there is the list of subscribers for the digest feature – the ability to receive a week or a month’s worth of posts via e-mail – and how to manage subscriptions/unsubscriptions via e-mail. Though I’m working on only two features at the moment – remote comments and digest – it’s already apparent to me that I might have to do some major code shifting/rewriting. Since at least one of the other features I’m looking at – better archival link handling – might mean a lot of upheaval in the code base as well, I’m not sure when I’ll get done with this particular release :p But it’s going to be chock full of features when I do 🙂
