Yamit microkernel and boot finally made peace.
Everything seems to be working (enough to be useful).
This also means - I gotta make BSD server available.

I finally got everything to work. It worked once and does not work again.

Is it unfortunate or what?

I had a colleague that used to say: "Computer Science is not an exact science"

It sure seems so.

Random thought:
Moderating an Open Source project is tough job. I wonder, how long does it normally take, before benefits outweigh time invested?

I figured what was wrong with Yamit boot. Now I just have to fix it. Easier said ...

I found CVSWeb for NetBSD. VM is in much better shape. The only question is should I work on NetBSD VM or debug my own code?

Wanted to see what will happen if I apply my stuff to OpenBSD and/or NetBSD VM. I could not find CVSWeb access for NetBSD. OpenBSD VM is just a mess from maintanance point of view. UVM (which is good thing) added another source branch. I started *really* appreciate great job done by FreeBSD guys.

I made some changes to Yamit website. I also applied some optimizations to VM code. 2nd stage boot is such a problem. I should just stop being lazy and go thru this debugging nightmare again.

OK. jmallett certified me, I did the same for him. I also think he's got an interesting project, although our goals may be somewhat different. I think Yamit developers should/might want to have goals discussion at some point. However, I am not going to the one to provoke it.

jmallett best of luck at BSDCon. Europe is nice, I suggets going to southern France if even for a day.

Now, we are exchanging emails. Well, maybe something productive will come out of this.

And I think I should also have more people to talk too.

Looks like some people just live here. I looked at xMach's page since it came up in somewhat unrelated search, then at jmallett's and a few others. Man ...

Do people read kind of stuff I am writing now?

Nah...

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
