Chipped away some more at the Mac IIfx SCSI driver today. Resisted the urge to buy anything at the mall.

In the 'old news' column, I added MySQL support to Red Hat's 'php' package last month. You will have to make sure you have MySQL RPMs already installed, download the php .src.rpm, and rebuild it yourself after uncommenting the unrelated parts in the php.spec file. If MySQL could be distributed by Red Hat, this would not be an issue, but such is the case with 37 different 'open source' flavor licenses, I suppose.

More 'old news': check out the Interactive Disassembler. While a little pricy, this program kicks total ass. It disassembles m68k, x86, 6502, Java byte-code, etc. etc. etc. I need to re-new my license so I can harass the poor author to add more Macintosh support.

Speaking of Macintosh, has anyone ever tried to get the 'sigcontext' to work with a signal() handler? My flailing attempts have failed repeatedly. Any pointers would be great: mail me at jason@sdi.cluephone.com. Thanks!
