DragonFly users List (threaded) for 2008-10
Back from nycbsdcon!
I'm back now from NYCBSDCon! It was a really excellent con. Something
like 150-200 people or so. All the presentations were excellent and
were taped w/ full video. I think if you go to NYCBSDCon's sites/blogs
there are audio and video references to them, or will be soon.
My own talk was very well received and, as usual, highly technical. I
also got to meet a lot of people including Pawel Jakub Dawidek who
has been doing the ZFS port for FreeBSD.
It was a great deal of fun. Tons of food, excellent side conversations.
My voice is still horse from talking so much.
If people have URL references to the con, please post them!
I hope everyone survived the financial meltdown! There were a few
no-shows at the Con due to the mess, it being NYC there were
numerous local BSD users working in the financial industries who got
messed up pretty badly.
DragonFly project finances are still fine so don't worry about DragonFly.
For those badly effected by the meltdown we'll hope for a good recovery
at time rolls by!
This week may be a little hairy for me. I do not yet know whether I'll
need to help bring our sailboat back up to the Bay Area from Monterey,
so my presence on the lists will depend on that. A few off-shore storm
systems muffed up the return schedule so I'm on-call now. I'd
consider it an extended vacation but bringing a boat north up the
California coast usually means upwind sailing in heavier seas == I'll
be cold, miserable, and seasick. But at least we'll still be in a
harbor each night and have a nice big seafood dinner at the local
restraunts. Take that you fishies! :-)
I hope to address three niggling issues with HAMMER this week: First I
may at least try to fake the st_nlinks field for directories to fix issues
with 'find' as reported by Joerg. Second I intend to fix the @@
extension parsing so it does not try to interpret certain mail system
spool file names as as-of requests as per another bug report.
Sascha's bug report is still open but further testing is needed, and
I will close the Debugger() entry that 'cont'ing from caused the data
failure he got to become permanent on-media.
