  • ColdStore is the current love of my life
  • I dig tcl for quick hacks, although I know it's not hip, fab or groovy to say so.
  • I started using C++ with cfront 1.2 - C++ is the language of thought.
  • I ported Minix to the 68000, learned a lot, wrote a real-time-kernel from what I learned.
  • I've got to tell you - Linus' views on microkernel architectures are slightly less informed than the pope's views on human sexuality.
  • I use Linux, though, on Intel architectures, because they're fast enough that I will *never* need more than a few lines of assembler again (intel assembler is a study in absurdity.)
  • Debian is my religion.
  • I first saw collaborative development in the Applix 1616 Project by the quietly spoken but *extremely talented* Andrew Morton, made lots of friends, they keep popping up all over the place.

Yay! I've been certified on advogato as `apprentice' by someone who ``Over the past several years [has] created a number of icons for the GNOME project and created many themes (including the infamous E-X and GTK-X themes).''

I'm an apprentice icon-maker. I can't wait to tell mum.

Apparently I'm not certified. Oh well.

Interesting article about distributed trust, in which someone poses the question of how to operate a distributed trust matrix in a context of uncertain identity.

I suspect that the solution to the problem of trust in ``a single statement which many people want to evaluate the truth of, but there is no single authority on.'' subsumes the case in which the single statement is `X is the same person as Y', or should.
