Argh. So much for keeping up a good, up-to-date diary.
Scary stuff. I'm slowly wading through the current squid filesystem layout, trying to build something better(tm). Exactly what that is is up for debate, but it involves more abstraction... Seriously, it's interesting stuff, trying to make ufs and aufs share more code while at the same time present a more useful interface for plugging different things (like sfs and coss) into. Will get there, slowly.
Way too slow - need to find time and space to put some serious hours into this again, it's languishing for lack of world-level coding.
Still happening, main client was purchased by some telco or other, so they're madly trying to justify the product's existence I suspect - hope they do, because it is a good product, and I do actually enjoy working on it, mostly ;)
Other clients are slowly appearing - atm, I'm doing html/zope work that I really don't want to be doing because we seem to have a surfeit of low-level techies and a shortage of html-types. Ah well. Have also picked up some unix consulting work for a gov dept, which looks like it'll be ongoing - on the strength of making sure the work done is done well. Note to people doing consulting/contracting: When you're asked to setup tripwire, and you just install it without actually removing all the bodgy stuff/configuring it, that's a good path to not being asked back for more work. So we've been spending time setting up the installation of tripwire the previous guy threw on there. Hehe.
Well, dogs, but he looks like a ferret... pjf got a rabbit, Jimmy (half-blue heeler, half-jack russel, all ferret) is currently running up and down the fence-line whinging because he can't go, um, introduce himself to said rabbit... Oh boy.
