Well, a month later, and I decided to write to myself again. Once a month ain't bad. People shouldn't think that I'm that crazy for writing to myself once a month.

I'm not really sure what I have to say today. My life is currently all about the 2.6 kernel and managing deadlines for various conferences.

The code freeze for 2.5 is looming. I don't really care. I have all necessary changes in. At least, I think I do. I suppose something could come up, but I'll deal with that if/when it happens. The last fews cleared up the last of my pending changes: I finally shrank the sysfs methods so that attributes may look like

struct device_attribute {
        struct attribute        attr;
        ssize_t (*show)(struct device * dev, char * buf);
        ssize_t (*store)(struct device * dev, const char * buf, size_t count);

It was somewhat of a PITA, as I initially removed the 'size_t count' parameter from the store() methods, and Linus pulled while telling me it was bad interface. 'Well duh, of course it is,' I thought. So, I had to re-fixup all the implementors. Ugh.

I leave for sunny Australia in three days. I can't wait to be someplace above freezing.

Speaking of freezing my cute little buns off, I found this chart of wind chill the other day.

The deadline for OLS paper proposals is coming soon (in two days). I need to figure out something to talk about. Or, decide to talk with Greg. Blah.
