About 12 weeks ago One of the things I end up doing is do a lot of performance profiling on core kernel code, particularly the VM and filesystem. 

And I tend to do it for the "good case" - when things are pretty much perfectly cached.  Because while I do care about IO, the loads I personally run tend to be things that cache well. For example, one of my main loads tends to be to do a full kernel build after most of the pulls I do, and it matters deeply to me how long that takes, because I don't want to do another pull until I've verified that the first one passes that basic sanity test.

Now, the kernel build system is actually pretty smart, so for a lot of driver and architecture pulls that didn't change some core header file, that "recompile the whole kernel" doesn't actually do a lot of building: most of what it does is check "ok, that file and the headers it depends on hasn't changed, so nothing to do". 

But it does that for thousands of header

About 13 weeks ago Interesting.

When you do this the first time, it looks like a simple oversight - left-overs from some debugging perhaps. But when you "fix" it by hiding it, it's very clearly deliberate.

Netgear, Cisco, quick question please? What exactly does it take to actually care about your customers instead of actively trying to screw them?

About 5 days ago Final certification dive. 

My army of scuba-diving minions is (slowly, oh so slowly) taking shape. This is Daniela showing perfect form under water at Mala Pier during her final cert dive.

About 13 weeks ago We're apparently the only people around who have random videos of our kids doing various things shot with random phones or cameras that don't always get the rotation right. 

Because I just went through several different video players until I found one that allowed me to rotate the video to be right side up.

smplayer for the win.

But that's after trying too many alternatives.

Even VLC, that does pretty much anything and has an overly fancy video geometry thing that allows you to rotate the video by an arbitrary amount gets it completely wrong. Not only does it make it unnecessarily hard to actually do a simple 90° rotation (because obviously you want an analog input thing that makes it possible to rotate by something like 82°, but no obvious way to just fix a vertical video?), but then it keeps the end result within the original aspect ratio box so that the skewed end result is wrongly cropped. I'm sure you can use another setting to edit that aspect

About 3 weeks ago Congrats to Patricia.

As to everybody else: you might want to avoid Oregon (and nearby states) for the next few months. It's beautiful here in the summer, but you have to ask yourself: do you feel lucky?

About 11 weeks ago Hey, +Gmail, your spam filers seem to be having trouble.

I started looking through my spambox because Al Viro reported that he got spam-warning bounces when emailing me. His email actually arrived, and nothing from him was in the spam traps, but something certainly seems to have changed since April 23rd: there was a definite uptick in false positives in my spam folder.

Maybe it's just a coincidence that there seems to be an uptick in wrongly marked spam in the last week, but have you perhaps been tweaking gmail spam detection lately? Because if you have, I think it might have become a bit too aggressive.

Of course, maybe it's just that there does also seem to be more spam senders that use Markov chains to make their messages look more like real email (or just cut and paste real email into the bottom of the spam message). So maybe that's poisoning your Bayesian filters.

About 11 weeks ago [ Insert "I need you" propaganda picture here ]

Are you familiar with the OS X bluetooth stack, and how to use it from C? Do you crave fame and fortune and an open source project to show off your mad OSX BT skillz in? 

If so, you're in luck. The libdivecomputer project needs some help with the OS X bluetooth implementation, because apparently it is completely different from the Linux/Windows ones that already has some preliminary patches.

See the link for details.

About 10 weeks ago Subsurface 4.1 has been released

Tons of bug fixes, a very nice visual update, lots of improvements overall.
Windows and Mac binaries are on our server, sources are available via git or as tar ball on our server. Packages for the different Linux distributions will show up over the next few days / weeks / months (depending on the nature of your favorite distro... but realistically, just build it yourself...)
