I'm working on several projects in my spare time. Most important is probably my work on the Linux port to MIPS-based workstations ( DECstation, Siemens RM- series). I'm also interested in Linux ports to other 'ancient' systems (I also collect old Unix systems) like DEC3000 TurboChannel Alphas and Motorola 88k- based systems.

During the last months, my interest in MacOS X and its open source foundation, Darwin, grew and I'm currently exploring this exciting new system.

Long time no entry ;-).

In April, I moved east ;-) to Marburg to work as a research assistant/Ph.D. student at the Distributed Systems Group (Prof. Freisleben).

The most recent "toy" I have here is our institute's new server - a dual-G4 XServe from Apple. After fixing a bug in Apple's GMac ethernet driver, this machine is now up and running, waiting for me to finish configuring all the services it's intended to run.

Created advogato account ;-).

Tried to get my Motorola Series 900 88k-based system up and running with OpenBSD - the system is usually running Motorola System V. Failed to locate cable for serial console and was unable to find information on the RJ45 console plug.

Decided to install Darwin/x86 on a laptop here. Also failed, probably due to an unsupported IDE controller in the machine.

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.
