First entry. Or maybe not.
Woke up at 8:30. Not much to do on the outside, university is still before warm up phase, fooling around with freshmen and stuff so got home at around 17:00. Sunk in front of the tele watching a re-run of Fight Club.
Spent most of the night reading (lkml) mail which kept me from investigating further on Con Kolivas' contest. This is a benchmarking application designed to test different kernels under different workloads (no load, process load, memory load and i/o load). It seems senior kernel hackers are delighted with this. So worth checking out.
Had to juggle a bit with the router machinery which has to leave its headquarters since the new guy in the apt will be arriving soon and I don't think he'd be happy to sleep with a couple of fans and a couple of hard drivers buzzing on his ears. Considering there's not much (closed) space in the place, decided to put it in the living as much hidden as possible. However the noise is decidedly inconvenient, even if we get used to it in a while. I'll look out for silent fans anyway.
Set up a stale machine which had been lying around for a while (well, it's not really mine) to serve for kernel testing/benchmarking. Disaster strucks when rm'ing a couple of files, a nice oops ensued and a filesystem goes bye bye just like that. I think it's the first time I've thrashed something with such efficiency... I'll have to see what I can do/recover tomorrow, cuz honestly today I'm a bit too tired to investigate.
