I'd given BJ the wrong ip for the server to connect to Solr, so I wasn't able to get anything to work. That's now fixed, and I'm able to issue queries from the server using GET and get useful responses as expected. I still have a lot of work to do on the XQuery library for eXist to do this, though; it complains about the URL I'm contacting being invalid -- it has complicated query-string components that need escaping in various ways, and I haven't yet figured out the right combinations and escape mechanisms to get it working. Slow but steady progress.

CS interview done, audio files processed.
In preparation for the upcoming MoEML build, and for future projects, I started working on an HTML diagnostics to test to check for referential integrity in the generated HTML. Spent the entire day working on this with some good results. There are two major issues, however. The first is that we can't use doc-available in most of the Endings projects since the document collections are too big and the doc-available function stores the file in memory. Got a work around for that and I now have a version that works in XSLT 2.0 and pure ant that can run against MoEML in about 5 minutes (when given nearly 3GB of RAM).
I would also like to experiment with a XSLT 3.0/XPath 3.0/Saxon EE version of this that uses the EXSLT extension and the file functions. I think these would be more efficient and more accurate than what I'm doing now, but has the downside of not being usable on remote build servers. If we decide to package this with the other diagnostics suite, then we should really have both versions.
Very useful interview with DO, recorded. The audio level on the backup recorder is way too low, though. Had to squash a bunch of spikes and then normalize to get it audible at all.
Monthly meeting (minutes will be on GitHub). As follow-up, made the svn repo for interviews available for everyone, and also added some Author-mode CSS for easier reading of the XML encodings of the transcriptions.
With JJ and EC. Very interesting indeed; different perspective from previous ones.
