gary: Yes, there is work on NFSv4. Last year at Usenix there was a presentation by one of the engineers on Sun and I do believe that they are working on making nfs a "secure" network file system. That means certificates and all that jazz. So, you can dig around on the Usenix site, or even take a look at Sun's site for something like: Sun Microsystems Gives Key Component of Network File System (NFS) to the Open Source Community it provides a nice link to NFSv4 Open Source Reference Implementation which says that they want to have a IETF complient NFSv4 system running on the Linux kernel by the end of the month. Hope that helps!

I was about to say it's been a few months since I last posted an entry, but I notice that it hasn't even been a month. Oh well, things are about normal, besides having Netscape 4.76 (Solaris) grow to almost 500megs eating up all the swap and memory. That's about the most exciting thing that's happened.

Does anyone know of a program that adds/edits the EXIF info on JPEG files? I've seen libraries used to read them, but I haven't seen any to write them. I resize my photos and then I loose that information which can be useful. It'd be nice to keep that information will the picture. Maybe I should finally get around to writing my own JPEG image library. It'd be fun to learn all the nasty details of the JPEG file format, and the things you can do w/o having to decompress/recompress the image.

Guess I'll be headed home so that I can go to martial arts class.
