Last month, I set up a new community discussion site, www.kerneltrap.com which is a news and discussion portal devoted to low-level systems programming, embedded systems development, and OS kernel hacking. It is with this site that I plan on getting myself back into the hard-core dev world again.
I must say, I'm getting sick of just doing sysadmin work. If anybody is looking for a developer in Tokyo, Japan, I am an experienced C/C++/PHP programmer with Oracle and MySQL as well. I would LOVE to work on projects (especially open source) if they involve significant coding (and I'm not that interested in doing web stuff) especially of a low-level nature. I am especially interested in getting into embedded systems work but I haven't had any experience in that field.
