I'm a Tocotronic addict.
I think so, at least. The flight to Berlin (CCC Camp) is booked, EUR 163,- from Vienna VIE to Berlin TXL including the journey from Linz to Vienna and back.
The slides for my talk at the CCC-Camp Conference (I'm not sure whether I will hold it) are ready, I could start with it now. :-)
Two ideas I was recently having was
- rewrite parts of akpop3d using libowfat. stdio stinks, definitely. Transition to libowfat would make akpop3d way cleaner, for sure. Who wants to help out? ;-)
- write an API-compatible wrapper around libedit to emulate libreadline. libreadline is GPL, which makes it virtually impossible to link non-GPL software against it and to ship it.
Started a little bit of playing with Minix. Minix is really nice and small, when I saw the memory allocation routine, I immediately recognized that it implements a first-fit algorithm. I also recognized that "Operating Systems - Design and Implementation" sucks in some ways, since a number of Minix details are only documented in source code. What do I need a textbook about it, then?
