First post :)

Another day, another journal. LiveJournal looks a bit easier to manage (from the humble “blogger”‘s perspective) and as an added bonus it doesn’t make use of all kinds of weird client-side scripting, meaning that there are many more choices w.r.t. the client that you can use.

I attended another shoulder replacement: this time a full replacement lasting a good 5 to 5.5 hours performed by the same skilled surgeon as the previous time. Very educational, with a relocation of the teres major and latissimus dorsi thrown in for good measure.

I have also decided to take a more relaxed approach by returning to level-set and fast-marching methods and dscas1 development: I’ve been spending lots of time on and getting all stressed up about some crackpot neural system ideas that I had. Thus, no Nobel prize this year.

BTW, that kernel patch is now in the ac kernels and should filter through to the main kernel tree at some stage.

Note to world: w3m still rules. I can use it to update via (not even opera can do that) and when I edit my blog, w3m automatically opens my favourite text editor (jed, doh) to do this with.

After quite a bit of work, I’ve fixed a bug in linux kernel 2.4.4 on the VT82C686A south bridge. The patch is submitted to the mailing list, so now hold thumbs that it appears in 2.4.5 (or something).
