I haven't blogged much lately because I've been distracted from kernel hacking by bitcoin mining. For some crazy reason I took it upon myself to make mining software that did what I wanted, writing it the way I write kernel code. Anyway since it's unrelated I haven't posted about it here before, but if anyone's interested, the development thread is here:
Now about the kernel. To be honest I haven't followed the development of 3.0 almost at all, being totally pre-occupied with other things as I've taken time out from work as a sabbatical while I reassess work-life balance, long term career management (even to the point of considering changing line of work - anyone need a c programmer?) and spend time with family, friends and random other personal development things. No, I'm not quitting kernel development any time soon (again).
Anyway the thing is I'm going with Interplast next week to Nauru (of all places) as a volunteer anaesthetist for needy children for 10 days. I'm not sure if I'll find time to port BFS to 3.0 before then, or if I'll be able to do it while I'm actually there (doubtful). So just a heads up that it might be a while before we BF the 3.0 kernel.
