Yow.

I got to Master level while I wasn't looking. =)

In other news, FreeBSD/powerpc slowly wends it's way towards single-user mode.

Singing is fun. =)

Well here I am in Adelaide. Spent the last most-of-week in McLaren Vale (south of Adelaide, one of Australia's better wine-growing regions) rehearsing Leonard Bernstein's Mass among other things and drinking far too much beer. Life's tough. =)

Now I'm back in Adelaide and staying at a friend's place while we continue to get the first concert (not the Mass) ready for performance on Saturday night. Then we go back to getting the Mass ready for the following Saturday night.

But before I go...

It compiled! It compiled and it linked! The latest snapshot of the FreeBSD/PowerPC kernel compiles and links. it doesn't boot though, unsurprisingly. It's a nice milestone to take a break on though.

The busy times are upon us.

I'm not going to get much work done (Open Source or otherwise) for the next month. Firstly this weekend I'm off up to an old mining town called Walhalla where my partner is finishing the hike she's been on for the last seven weeks. Then in the middle of next week I'm off to Adelaide for a choral festival that runs until 11 February. Then I'm back in Melbourne for four days, then back to Adelaide again for Womadelaide which is a three day world music festival that runs every two years. After that, I finally get to stay in the same place for a while, I hope. =)

locore.s isn't as scary as pmap (I think^H^H^H^H^Hhope)

I printed out the locore.s from NetBSD/macppc last night and managed to read through most of it on the tram into work today. I also printed out FreeBSD/alpha's so I can try and work out how they differ in what they do. Then I get to go through and implement a locore for FreeBSD/PowerPC. It doesn't look _as_ scary as pmap. I'm probably cursing myself here though. =)

I finally got my car back today. I had a close encounter with another guy coming out of a petrol station last year and hadn't got around to getting it sorted out until now. The car looks a lot happier now. =)
