Notes:

All round Debian Guy! My Debian responsibilities are quite wide and varied, because of this some people accuse me of being The Cabal Leader (it is not true, There is No Cabal!). A brief listing of my permanent Debian involvment would be, Admin (root@debian.org), Postmaster, quasi-Listmaster, Mirror Master, and possibly some things I will add later..

As for software, I am the primary author of Debian APT, the installer front end people seem to like. I also wrote and deployed the back end of the Debian Developer Database (http://db.debian.org/) and some other internal debian-admin software. Some of you might be using my RSAREF GPG module too, but I hope not anymore since RSA is unpatented now.

Years ago I co-wrote the Muse/2 music player on OS/2 and the Peripheral Evolution OS/2 Demo . Muse is OSS now, but nobody should care - PE's source is currently misplaced. I also co-wrote Intrack (another music player) more years ago than I care to count [non-OSS]! I would be completely amazed if anyone reading this has ever seen any of my commercial products.

In other areas, I played a minor part in the MTD project (memory technology devices) and wrote the FFS2 filesystem , a boot loader and some other things - not much is included in the official tar, and what is doesn't work

A project I participate in during school is the University ARVP project - all done using OSS software of course.

You can find me on IRC, on the OPN network, with a nick of Culus, for reasons unexplained. I have permanent type connectivity so my client is always there, even if I am not.

Mm, more length.

I finally graduated, degree in hand and fancy square hat on head.

I continue to be employed. Fancy that.

Ah, it has been a long time since posting here. Good thing nobody cares.

I had to forsake the DVORAK bit again, since I started a job, and it just wouldn't do to sit down at a QWERTY keyboard and type really slowly. So, as the message below suggests, I am actually employed now, at an Edmonton company called YottaYotta. We make storage system. Big Storage. I think I pass a couple terabytes of disk on the way to my desk, internal test systems. Heh.

So now, I am a 'Hardware Designer' which in practice means I get to write VHDL and think Big Thoughts about Big Storage.

Debian's BTS is killing our servers, and we lost a few more machines for various reasons that are still in the process of being recovered.. Debian Elections draw nearer, I think I might interview the candidates again, like all the past years!

I can almost type at a reasonable pace on a DVORAK layout, but still no touch typing action.

I had my first ever job interview today (at a local company called YottaYotta). My poor expectations were shattered, I was expecting to find an interesting but generally failing company, but instead they actually seem fairly reasonable. So now I may actually have to make some sort of choice and I'm not entirely sure how you go about doing that..

Finding a place to work always seemed so abstract, but now confronted with the brutal reality that there is a choice things seem rather dire. .

Being very indesicive sucks.

My forsaking the world continues at a good pace.

For no particular reason I thought I'd achieve something by learning the DVORAK keyboard layout. Several days into the madness and I aw still trudging along. This makes communication difficult which explains the forsaking

Perhaps eventually I can rejoin the world of the typing - it took several mins just to enter this diary entry!

It has been another month so I guess it is time to post something.

Debian had another disk crash and got a new box (klecker.debian.org) in order to replace the failed one. Lots of data was lost but nothing irreplacable. We still have two boxes that won't stay up more than a month, watchdog works good on one so the downtime is only about a half hour, the other nothing seems to work for. Sigh.

I never got to start my document, apathy rains supreme around here. Plus I'm feeling a major amount of aprehnsion about the future. How odd.

When did the diary entries turn into a chat line?
