About 13 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 1 week 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 5 days ago Heh. I have a Finland section for google news, and today it talks about the heat warning in force for most of Finland.

Yeah, that's three days of over 30°C. That's 86° in Freedom units, for those that can't math.

The record this summer so far has apparently been 31.8°C, which is not quite enough to break 90F.

About 4 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 12 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 12 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 11 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...)
