Still almost boring. Remember the occasional cracker-hunt, coming back on backdoors, and you play wack-a-mole with him. Weird to do that with the former boss, who hired me almost exactly three years ago..
Interesting times (as in the "Chinese" saying..). Linus just started to use BitKeeper, slashdot posted an article about arch.. Now I can see that the discussions on slashdot have very little value, even if you are bored all day... arch is a bit weird, it looks as a patchy maze of shell scripts (all different), but otherwise more likable...
welisc: funny, I've just seen that C++ book in my native language, and let me tell you, books are here getting *expensive*. The last time their price got so high was a few years ago, but this Christmas seems to have made all the publishers (not just of technical books) a lot greedier.
