Some of the other guys working on CPU hotplugging are really beginning to nail some bugs. I'm glad that it's making progress, i'm hoping to get some time to actually start contributing again soon.

In other news; no one loves an immigrant, still waiting on Canadian immigration. I wonder if i'll be able to get some news before Christmas so that i can at least go visit some family. The weather is beginning to approach shite levels so i may want to scarper anyway..

Various bits and pieces for the new build box are creeping in, it's not spectacular (dual 2.0 xeon, 1G RAM, lotsa disks) but it'll be a whole lot better than the dual 400MHz box i'm currently using for compiling. This should up my productivity quite a bit considering that i have 15-30min waits inbetween most project compiles (with ccache enabled) at present.

My Token Ring card also came so now i can finally get the PPC32 toasters running Linux, more targets!!

Since kerneltrap posted the kernel hacker diaries link, i now have an audience for my endless drivel and mindless jabbering. This is a good thing. Thus far, the highlight of my day has been managing to keep breakfast off my shirt. A close second has been spending a bit more time writing (what i believe should be) a semi functional Intel Xscale PMU driver for Oprofile 2.6, now if only the infernal thing could get past uncompressing the kernel, i'd be home free!
