Slept hard but not well.
Defeated the telnet protocol! By reading the inetutils source code. That stuff sucks. It's amazing how badly formatted so much of the source code our basic operating systems depend on is. But, I got it working. I can telnet into my server, and enter lines of text when I want, or get a single character (for menus) when I want.
And, as of a few minutes ago, I can render ansi menus with dynamic layout. So THAT's awesome.
Also played some Foundation, and finished relistening to Accelerando. Got a little bit of office cleaning done.
