18-Aug-2013 - State of TCP networking in Rebol 3 
It would be great to work out the remaining kinks in TCP for Rebol 3.
I'd heard recently about a mysterious TCP bug, so as a test, I wrote basic TCP client server scripts today. They worked pretty well over the local network where thru-put averaged 61 Mbps between two Linux boxes running Rebol 3. While doing that the system monitor on the client (TX) was at 4% of the CPU (although, I think that's the average over all cores.) I did not test it on the Internet. I guess that's next.
You can find the sources here:
Feel free to modify them and send pull requests if you've got some good additions.
These also serve as a basic example if you want to get started on your own networking in Rebol 3.
There were some issues:
18-Aug-2013 - Let's switch to .reb suffix 
We've talked about this a few times before. Using .r creates confusion between Rebol and other software (and even in editor syntax coloring rules.) Using .r3 implies too much.
Seems like .reb is about right.
(And no, I don't want to use .rebol -- just a bit too much.)
17-Aug-2013 - Home Automation With Insteon - ReCode conference video 
Here's a link to a video of my presentation at the 2013 ReCode Conference where I show how easy it is to program Insteon home controllers using Rebol 3.
