There's a trick to flying. In fact, there's a knack. The knack lies in the ability to fling yourself downward, and miss the ground...

I've been trying that for weeks, doesn't seem to be working.

In the works, unofficial omniorb 3.0.1 debs. These are officialy brent's turf but I haven't heard from him in a while ;). So they remain unofficial until woody freezes. If we haven't seen anything by then I'll consider asking for permission to NMU.

I'm going to be done with my project at work today! hoorah! PPC assembly is fun, but it's getting old. Time to finish it up and devote more time to the Beowulf project. Always on the move ;).

Automating the process of cloning a cluster has been a pain in the butt. I've got it mostly working, enough to expedite the process for me (partition the hard drive, download tarballs, unarchive, boom! fresh clone) but the little finishing tasks are a bit too interactive to make it worth automating them. Problem is, it has to be 100% easy for someone who's not a unix god. Bah. That's the next one I have to finish up, shouldn't really take all *that* long.

We'll see.

In the meantime Farewell, and Thanks for all the Fish >:^P.
