Ahh... Someone IS listening afterall... A friend from a
previous job put me in touch with his employer as a
possible candidate for future openings there- made my day.
If you DO know of a job where they could use a developer
of embedded systems, device drivers, etc. please send them
On other topics, new year, a setback, some new progress. I had bits and peices of code in place for the DMA portions of the RagePRO DRI driver for a while now, but nothing concrete and usable- I'm finding a little more time now and I expect to be pushing a CVS update in the RagePRO branch shortly (Hopefully within the next week or so if things keep up the way they have been...). Also of note is the design specs becoming available for the Ronja IR wireless link. Either unit could well be a good modulation scheme, etc. for the IR subsystem for Tux-Tag and I'm evaluating the possible use of either the Metripolitan or Loopipe versions right now. In any case, that's moving forward again as well.
That'd be the progress...now, for the setback...
NBCI, formerly known as XOOM, for some inexplicable reason chose to discontinue their free hosting service (I understand this part) but didn't tell anyone about the change. While it wasn't much, I would like to have had the opportunity to change the content over (I had my online copy of my resume there amongst other things- it'd been nice for me to have had some warning...)- but, alas, they had other ideas for all of this. So, for right now (and maybe indefinitely) it's housed at svartalf.freeshell.org- not too bad once you either get ZMODEM working over telnet (I had to use Virtmodem under Linux- nice little application by the way...) or pay them the one-time fee of $38US for standard FTP, etc. access to the shell account. There is a $1 fee to authenticate the basic shell access (because some twit used the site to attack others with...) but that's okay- $1 for 100Mb isn't a bad deal and I plan on giving them more per year to ensure continued operation.
