Patch 46 commented! Even as i was going through this patch, i thought it was simple. just add some entries to /proc, right?
I underestimated how much of a pain it is to dig through incomplete code. after documenting all 391 lines of the stuff, I'm convinced that this version is being called by nothing, to accomplish nothing. later patches touch this file, however, so *shrugs*.
I went to a great dylan rymes show the other day. one of the neatest things was that he plays the stuff that my local associates at xaphan.us are playing.. then takes it farther. starting up, it sounded like xaphan's regular monday night show.. but then it built into something amazing.
other than that, i'm still job hunting, after 5 months. i've out-stripped the job market in the local area. the most advanced stuff i can find to do is port $EVIL_COMPANY's applications from one version of *nix to another, and i don't *write* non-free software, so thats out. Ugh. I guess its time to move out of the area.
one more patch down.. some 52 hunks to work through before i start actually laying hands on this stuff.
