Long time no entry ;-).
In April, I moved east ;-) to Marburg to work as a research assistant/Ph.D. student at the Distributed Systems Group (Prof. Freisleben).
The most recent "toy" I have here is our institute's new server - a dual-G4 XServe from Apple. After fixing a bug in Apple's GMac ethernet driver, this machine is now up and running, waiting for me to finish configuring all the services it's intended to run.
