I'm not very good at this regular-diary-entry thing.

On the XFS front, I think I've got it working as the root filesystem, which involved making remount work, and log-replay-while-readonly, and all of those good bits. I don't think that many people are testing it, which makes me sad--please play with our software! Your future depends on it or something.

I started doing some tests with large-ish non-sparse files (8G or so) and found a bug in our page_buf interactions with the mm code when I try to remove them. I think that it's trying to remove the same page twice (which means that its mapping is invalid the second time around), but I'm not sure why just yet.

Achtung's tktext-based canvas widget should be capable of drawing text real soon now, and then a few more hours of hacking should yield something that's properly editable. Mike has done more amazing things with Bonobo and the view code; I'm told that it looks absolutely stunning, though I haven't pulled that branch to try it myself.

Tomorrow is mang's last day (before he heads back to Waterloo), which is too bad. We are going to miss him, as soon as we finish drinking heavily in his honour. Our favourite Collection bartendette is leaving soon as well, possibly as soon as Friday. Boo!

I'm still without furniture, and every day I think to myself, "Oh well, I've lasted this long, what's one more day?" Tonight will be an evening of mass cleaning and hockey (rah rah go Leafs). Maybe I can have Ikea bring me more nice things sometime next week.

For the record, shaver spends too much time at Globe.
