Wow. It's been nearly 5 years since my last entry here. I guess the main reason is that I lost the account details and it's taken a couple of years to get them reset :-) In seriousness, I mailed a few times but never followed up on it - it'd be nice if this stuff was automated.
I'm not the same person that I was last time I wrote here all those years ago - I'm far more optimistic about life now and I've grown up quite a lot too. I've got a great job hacking on Linux kernel technologies for a cool vendor and I'm in the process of moving to the US. For more about what I'm up to check out http://www.jonmasters.org/blog/
