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 *want* it.

heres hoping next week goes better. and that i don't take a week between posts/patches!
