Digital camera goodness: a Canon PowerShot A40. And it even works perfectly with the Linux USB stack and gphoto2 (at least once I remembered to turn the mode switch on the camera to the "playback" position rather than the "take pictures" position ...).
ncm: Actually, the Debian/BSD people have known about the glibc-on-BSD effort for a while (in case you didn't know - I read your diary entry as if you didn't), and I believe the FreeBSD part of that group is already using it. I remember the news came out just before the Debian conference last year, which would have been July or so.
A parallel effort based on BSD libc is useful too, I think, despite being a lot of work, since it makes our code more portable and thus more useful to the wider community.
