Today, I start my vacation. That's sweet.

Also, I would like to let you know that I'm thinking about moving this diary to my new, all-fancy, cool home page. Hope you won't mind.

I just felt like writing some about my hacking business. I feel I haven't done so in a long time, but as usual, most everything can be read on the chaos web site. Anyway, here goes.

We fixed memory allocation for regular user processes the other day. We use a combination of an AVL tree (for physical and virtual pages), and a slab system for smaller bits than that. It gives pretty little overhead, and feels pretty neat. Now, things are getting pretty interesting...

I haven't really had the time to write anything lately. Don't know really why. Anyway, I've got the laptop now. Very nice, indeed, except for the Winmodem with only a binary kernel module for Linux 2.2.12 (which I don't use). Anyway, I'm using for pretty much of the coding nowadays. This weekend, I was on a funeral in Falun (for my grandfather's woman). After that, I was out in Uppsala for the night, played some basketball on Sunday and did some cleaning of the appartment.

Of course, that's not everything. :) I hacked the initial_ramdisk and fat servers to more-or-less work; the FAT12 code seems almost complete now. I'll just get everything together and start doing the VFS calls, and we'll very soon have (hopefully) full read-support for FAT filesystems. Isn't that great indeed?

Of course, FAT is just a first step; ext2 or others would be cooler but is more work. Besides, FAT is needed anyway, so someone'd better do it.

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.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.
