I've spent the last few days getting back to the grindstone hacking NetBSD, doing various housecleaning tasks on my computer systems, and chasing up things for Wasabi.

This makes a change from last month which wasn't as productive (in hacking terms) as I would have liked given:

  • I spent two weeks in the USA (for LISA in New Orleans, and work stuff in San Francisco)
  • We (Australians) effectively have a week off between Christmas & New Years (it's our summer break in the southern hemisphere)
  • I was seriously distracted out of work hours playing Half-life Counter-strike on-line. I un-installed Counter-strike on New Year's Day in an attempt to increase productivity and improve my social life. So far, so good.... ;-)

Most of the NetBSD hacking over the last few days has been stuff like finishing off my _DIAGASSERT() project. There's a lot to go, but I've done a few of the system libraries already.

On another front, I've had my car (a metallic black Audi S3) for nearly ten months and it's due for its second service at 30,000km. I've really enjoyed driving it so far, although I expect that the next 15000 km service interval will probably take a year to get to because I'm driving a lot less that I was (due to travel and the fact that I now work from home).
