Wow, been a *long* time. To top off the real big new since my last diary entry, my wife and I had a new baby boy on Aug 4th! That gives us two in all :)

On the Debian front, we have just released potato (2.2). So now I can finally move on to new things. I've taken over GLibc from our recently departed developer, Joel Klecker (we miss you Joel). I gave up about 6 of my smaller packages so I can concentrate more on the core packages I maintain, aswell as new and exciting things with the SPARC/UltraSPARC port.

Been messing with firewire a lot lately. I'm still trying to get it running under Linux on my non-x86 boxes (damn the h/w centricity!). My main problem is the fact that parts of the DMA'd area that isn't suppose to be affected by FIFO lag, is in fact two cycles out of step :/ So much for OHCI specs and the like. Oh well, I'll get it working sooner or later, and have this 45gig native firewire drive running under sbp2 soon.
