I've been working on a few different things.

MySQL cluster: Brian Aker (krow) and I have been discussing different ways to make a MySQL cluster. All of the known ways seem to have faults. I went ahead and made one that uses PVFS. What I did was make one master/metadata server and 3 IO servers. PVFS distributes a files data between the IO servers. The master keeps track of the meta info and where what parts of the file are on what server. I built MySQL on the master server and made the MySQL database files sit on the PVFS filesystem. Unfortunatly the benchmark results were very poor. So right now I'm playing around with the MySQL code to maybe have it use the PVFS library. This might help with the speed of it. There are a couple of other things I might try to see what speed increase I get.

Honeynet Project: The Linux kernel patches I put together were mentioned in the honeynet projects white papers "Know your enemy: Honeynets". This was a pleasant surprise.

openMosix: I havent done a whole lot for openMosix these last few days. But I have some plans in mind about openMosix's filesystem oMFS. I'm still thinking about it though so nothing I want to make public yet.

Well.. thats it.
