Catching up on stuff...
PCI Hotplug

Things have been pretty quiet with the code lately. I've been playing with the ACPI version of the driver on a machine in the lab at work, and it is almost working properly... At least until the next ACPI update comes along and changes everything again :)

Made a new release of pcihpview this time making .rpm packages up to try to relieve all of the questions I had to answer about building the program from the tarball.

Linux USB

More tiny fixes all the time. I want to sync up with all of the USB changes in the -dj kernel, so will attempt to get that finished tonight.

Articles

Been having quite a run of articles published lately:
Hopefully they help people out.

OLS

OLS looks to be a lot of fun this year. My talk is on the first day, so it will be nice to get it over and have fun going to the other talks. It looks like there are a lot of very good papers being presented.
Misplaced anger
In working on syncing up the USB code in the -dj kernel into the latest 2.5 tree, I ran across this rant about the use of EXPORT_SYMBOL_GPL() in the kernel tree. As the first person who used this macro, I don't have much sympathy.

Also pay attention to the last sentence of the second to last paragraph of that page, I think that says it all :)

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
