Several patches are available from the site for minor updates to the token ring code. One of the more important patches is the support for big endian machines in ibmtr. I've now got two independant patches for this, one developed for the ppc and one for parisc. Of course, they both take a different approach to the situation and are not interoperable. I've got to got through the patches and get a consolidated approach to the issue.

Started putting up the old linux-tr mailing list archives on the web site for people to look at. It's quite amusing and informative looking back at the old posts and realizing just how far the token ring support has come over the past 5 years.

Still working on the flying, getting close to taking the check ride now. Hopefully this will be in February some time so I'll have my license after that.

Still working away in Chicago during the week. Its been a year now from what should have been a 6 month assignment. The travelling up and down is definately getting tiring, but its better than not being employed at all.
