ChainChat development status...

Once I handled the socket glitches, I made alot of fast progress. The basics of message reciept are finished, which makes alot of other functions pretty robotic. The next real work that has to be done is setting up the XML parser to handle the incoming messages. I'm figuring that the actually message will be XHTML encapsulated in a simple XML document. I'm going to have to brush up on my schema design to handle validation, but that'll come later. I'm at the stage where I code for the perfect world, and in a perfect world, all the clients will be sending well formatted XML.

Suddenly though, ChainChat is turning into one of the simplest applications I'm working on, rather than the most complicated. Of course, that's because the GUI is pretty straight-foward. I hate coding GUIs. Loathe it passionately.
