So. It's been a while since I updated my diary. Shame on me! My life has been a horrid mess, however, so I'm excused.

I am now properly settled in Ottawa after the excruciatingly painful and lengthy relocation process. Got a nice apartment, and took a day off yesterday to assemble all the stuff I got from IKEA. Yes, I know it's a defeat for a dane to buy swedish furniture. Jes did it too, however, and we have proof! But wait! There's more! He also bought a french bike. He'd probably kill me for making this public knowledge, but he's currently booth babing at LWE so I'm out of reach. Hah!

Work is good. I'm still full time on the XFS project, but I spend most of the time hacking the Linux block I/O layer and LVM code. Currently teaching LVM to do kiobuf-based I/O. buffer_heads must die! They are e-v-i-l.

Oh, I need to chastise Mr. Ryan "Honeybun" Tilder, who still can't spell my name correctly after all these years. *smack*
