My first diary entry. Hopefully it's not messed up.

Bad luck. I released MirBSD #5 today, 09.06.2003, and sent out a release announcement. Due to a combined effect of PEBKAC on my side and a mailer system error, it was sent out twice - I seem to have made enemies.

I'd like to apologize to the people who got it. I know that several of you will be reading this.

And the FreeBSD people were faster. Well, I can live with that...

Anyways - the new release is the most well tested binary snapshot of my tree ever. It rocks in other ways too - for example, you can install it on a system with root on software RAID, where the install tarballs live on a Microsoft® NTFS partition, or online with ISDN (T-Online + Fritz!PCI v1 (v2 should, too) works, tested that) and SyncPPP. Or PPPoE.

Okay, stop the advertising. Let's write a bit about myself.

I'm tired, have a lot of headaches - do I work too much? I'll not do much tomorrow. Swimming will be fine to chill down; I've got to work on Wednesday, in contrast to a friend of mine who's here at the moment, he's got school on Tuesday. templeofhate.com has been updated to OpenBSD 3.3, so mySQL (a piece of crap I usually seek the largest possible distance to) doesn't work any more. Wow, after days I find out by reading some error message Robin showed me that it's got pthread errors. Okay, update to -stable. WTF, who installed OpenBSD 3.2's gcc? Fun, fun, fun. I need recovery. Soon.

I can't even apply for a free day in order to go to Linuxtag yet, because it's still unclear whom to ask. Argh. Symlink T-Shirts and the usual BBQ party will make us have fun again, like last year.

And now I 9999 GOTO 32766:REM BED
