Patch 43 commentaried!
this week was a hard week on me. still no job prospects
(lots of prospects, no panning out). in addition, a car i
had put in a lot of work to get got towed off while i was at
akon. i'd have been notified about it, and done something,
but my openmoko was a brick in dallas. to make matters
worse, the car was a gift from a family member that i've
been very estranged from, and would like to know better.
there goes that. i got into an argument with my best friend
of.. egads, 14 years? once upon a time, we were very close,
now he can only stand me in "small doses", and thinks i
can't even be rationally debated. *sigh*. i fear i have lost
him completely, to an "its all about me" corporate speak
mindset. he believes so much in the Accursed Linux Company
he works for, that he's forgotten open source philosophy,
and replaced it with corporate policy.
He really needs to re-read the cathedral and the bazzar.
i'm having troubles with my landlord, as well. he's moved
in, and taken over half the place. he's willing to third the
bills with me and my other roommate.. but he's not even
helping with rent. and the kind of people he brings around...
all that, and i havent even talked about the patch!
patch 43 is the "central clearing house" of migration. it
dosent do any of the migration related activities, but it
handles calling the right function, and asking permission
between kernels/tasks. i concider it the highest level of
the migration API. and its horrid. :) rare error checking,
wrapper functions that are later ignored.. it even uses 0
for success AND failure in several functions. at least thats
one more patch down.
i'm still waiting on the person who popped up to play
administrator to get done setting up anongit. i'm using the
git tree myself, but no-one else can get at it. oh well,
thats why my docs are on the website, right?
again, quite a difficult week. lost a friend, lost a chance
at a real relationship with a long-estranged family member,
problems with my landlord, problem with finances, and no job
yet. i've got some friends who seem to want to help, but
i've been in such a funk, its hard to ask for help. i don't
heres hoping next week goes better. and that i don't take a
week between posts/patches!
