experience the loveFalconer
There was a new The Falconer
on SNL last night. The Falcon got coked out. Where do they come up with this stuff?
I wrote Will Forte a fan letter like a year ago telling him how hard The Falconer
rocks, but he never wrote back. I guess he does not use Linux. I ought to become a crazed fan and send him another one.procps
was released yesterday. Lots of fixes, including improved support for big machines and 64-bit jiffies. A couple new slabtop
(1) features, too.
If you use use a pre-3.0 gcc and compile from source, you will want to grab the source from CVS
, though. There is a simple silly compile bug in in 2.0.18.FOSDEM
Been invited to FOSDEM
. Tentatively going to talk about the required kernel and system-level development we need to make Linux on the desktop the single greatest user experience known to man, with the aptly named talk The Linux Kernel and the Desktop
. I am really stoked about the oppurtunity to go. At OLS I talked on Kernel Interactive Performance
, which went over the performance improvements in 2.6 that benefited the desktop. But this talk will cover the important stuff for mass exceptance: better hardware support, desktop integration, et cetera.
I am also really
looking forward to seeing Brussels. Havoc
was there last year and he tells me that the food and beer in Belguim is great. Nothing else really matters but good food and good beer.CFQ I/O scheduler
' CFQ (complete fair queuing) I/O scheduler is super nice on the desktop. An SFQ-esque algorithm distributing the queues by process is exactly
what a desktop system ought to be doing.OAR and Athens, GA
So got back from my roadtrip to Athens, GA to see OAR
. The concert rocked.
What shocked me was the unilateral hatred from UGA fans onto UF. It is such a one-way rivalry
. I guess that is what happens when you win, what is it, 13 out of the last 14 meetings? Example: we went to a bar entitled Gator Haters
. Wow. At least downtown Athens was really quite pretty and fun. Lots of cool places to hang out, including any one of the 11 bars we made our way into the first night there.
