At USENIX today. Speaking tomorrow. It is nice that the conference is here in Boston, but I think I am getting tired of conferences.

The Red Line

Last night JimmyK and I stumbled into yet another bar doing trivia. Despite arriving late, we took second place. If we did not drink so much beer, I think we could make money off of this.

Apple is raising the bar again - and, finally, OS X will be 64-bit. I remember my despair when I printed sizeof (void *) and got four on my G5. Now, Tiger will rock. And 30" displays! If only Apple did not totally jack Beagle, eh?

The Swamp, on my last night in Gainesville

Happy to see Mono 1.0 released.

Joey sent me the following written word from Justice Stevens: For if this nation is to remain true to the ideals symbolized by its flag it must not wield the tools of tyrants even to resist an assault by the forces of tyranny. Wonderful writing.

Back from Ottawa, which was good. Tired. Both Kernel Summit and Ottawa Linux Symposium were good. Stopped in one day at the Desktop Summit with Alan. That, too, looked good. Discussed my kernel events layer at KS. Gave a talk about it at OLS. Submitted the patch Friday. Looking good. Off to Portland next week for the O'Reilly Open Source Convention. Hopefully it will be good. Then the conference ban kicks in and things will be really really good.
