Ugh, I'm doing 12-14 hour days at work again, which leaves very little time for anything else. Helping a friend by shuttling his daughter from daycare to T-Ball games while he's busy.. boy, this is why I don't have kids.

The Keyspan USB driver has some problems that stem from my poor understanding of sleep-vs-interrupt issues in the kernel, with the probable result that sometimes it could just panic. Sigh, time to crawl this learning curve along with everyone else.

The EGD-vs-Solaris7or8 fix seems to be working well, so there should be a new release as soon as I incorporate some brief docs about using it with OpenSSH and OpenSSL. Neat to see your code used in places you'd never thought about using it. It even got mentioned on the Darwin mailing list, although I'd have to agree with their feelings that it would be better to implement /dev/random instead of shipping EGD.

Built a new GPG key since the old one is about to expire. You can pick it up here.

Saw someone mention FF8. My god, they made more?!? There is something bigger than FF7? I'm doomed...
