So I'm almost ready to fly to Cambridge, MA, for the International Lisp Conference, where I'm going to present my second paper on the behavior and performance of Lisp... well, that is, if my plane actually takes off. There's a general strike in France on thursday.

Why am I not surprised ?

This year, the conference will have lightening talks as well, so I figured I could take the opportunity to introduce my fellow lispers to Clon, the Command-Line Option Nuker. It's a library for managing command-line options in standalone lisp applications. It's not released yet (I still have some work to do in it) but it's close, so advertising it already is a nice way to sort of putting pressure onto myself...
