Quite a silent week on my behalf. I had an interesting struggle with one of our terminal servers; some processes on it went into 'uninterruptible sleep' while waiting for I/O from NFS, and never woke up, elevating the loadavg of the machine to ~15. Signals didn't help, and I didn't want to boot the box, so I had to play around in kernel space (modify task_struct) to get rid of them. I enjoy this sort of challenges alot, since you always learn something from them.
I was happy to find some bug reports on my new spong Debian packages and spent some time on them. I am trying to get the spong-server and client to run as a non-root user, but am not very confident that the upgrade from older packages will go smoothly once I do this change.
