Notes:

I tend to get buried in new interests so I may be absent on this kind of fora for long periods and then come back and be too tired to list all the things I've done. Don't expect the diary to be very active :)

I occasionally Package stuff for Irix. I read quite a bit and work as a systems administrator.

Dillo seems to work with Gmail if you enable SSL. Neat.

Testing Technorati Profile claiming.

More and more things going on. Nothing quite computer related as I'm swaying towards electronics again.

Installed plan9 recently. It really has loads of wonderful ideas that I sorely miss in other systems. Still, it doesn't fill enough of my needs to do much anything with. At least there's still quite a bit to learn there and it looks interesting.

The strange Guile/mailutils bug persists. Sent report to Debian.

Oddly enough my OpenBSD/sparc firewall also threw a panic the other day. Didn't find the energy to report that. Just noted that the console was showing a debugger when I turned the terminal on. After reboot, it has been running fine.

First time I had to do percussive maintenance. My unused hppa workstation hard drive made weird sounds. Eventually I decided that the disk wasn't turning and the odd sounds came from the drive head and/or some kind of recovery procedure. Hammer→bearing and all seems well again. It's not an important disk and merely holds an experimenting system, so I'm not too worried about its state. Also came across Tor.

More scheme code at work and home. Much fun. Except that I got Guile to segfault using mailutils libraries. Seems that if I explicitly close a mailbox, the interpreter eventually segfaults. In a thread. From gc. With no debug symbols. I figured out how to build a -dbg deb and traced a bit more and then just removed the closes and so far the thing works. It should be no problem if I don't close the boxes while running a batch job. I'm almost itching to try something with the bigloo object system and C bindings and perhaps libdbi.

Back from a week of low-tech work/holiday. I keep feeling more and more that I should finally start making a picture organizer after my own taste. I seem to be behind some kind of threshold that I should get past in order to start hacking anything. Instead I'm reading, practising for Bujinkan and watching the snow pile up and temperature creep down outside.

GT4 release date here is only a few weeks away, I believe. Would be nice to finally get that. I hope the non-driving related components have improved as they were really irritating in an otherwise great simulation.

Firefox still doesn't accept mozex. At least some other extensions and features work and help remove some of the netrape braindeadness. Every time I hit ^U to erase a text field I get homicidal. Otherwise the new release looks acceptable.
