Cool, I remembered my advogato password ;-)
I am getting married in less than two weeks! My wife-to-be has kicked my butt to make progress on my Ph.D... Yes, I am STILL working on my Ph.D. I passed an important milestone a month ago, and I now see light at the end of the tunnel.
A quick open source software update... Last year I became a co-developer on the Warewulf cluster project. If you do or are thinking about doing beowulf cluster work, check it out.
Back to the grindstone... I'll post again in a year or so I guess ;-)
