WTF we have a symlink

Much closer to a new DuaLive CD. Reading Ecma 119 (ISO 9660), El Torito, and IEEE P1282 (Rock Ridge). Fixing bugs in makefs(8) as if there were no tomorrow. Even ifdef’d MirBSD deps, so that they™ can take everything back. Finding bugs in the kernel (one harmless, one deadly), and amusing myself over certain students. (Bit 0 == 2⁰ == 0x01 not 0x00…)

What’s left? Actual testing (qemu, real hardware), and I suspect that the RR_MOVED creation code does not split the directory correctly at 2048 byte sector boundaries, like all the others. (How many damn academics did work on this part of the code, anyway? Modularisation sucks, major arse.) Being paranoid and using calloc(3) has saved me from most other illnesses since.

Leider mußte ich den Federroten heute alleine trinken, aber immerhin konnte ich wbx@ überzeugen, sich zur mksh zu bekennen — sie kann UTF-8 und überhaupt Umlaute in der Shell, schön mit nur einmal Rücktaste drücken und so. Und seinen GNU screen hab ich ihm auch noch gefixt. Dafür bin ich den Sharp Zaurus SL-C3200 (und somit auch meine einzige OpenBSD-Testkiste) wieder los… eventuell nutzt er ja MirPorts, denn unser screen weiß, obs in einem Unicode- oder 8-Bit-Terminal rennt, wsconfig/chkuterm sei dank.

Warum sagt mir eigentlich niemand, daß mor…^Wheute die Geschäfte zuhaben? Ich bin ja mal voll für src/usr.bin/calendar/calendars/de_DE/calendar.ladenöffnungszeiten.$bundesland (das geht ja sonst mal gar nicht)!

I discovered that the CD drive in my docking station — namely a cd0 at scsibus0 targ 0 lun 0: <HL-DT-ST, DVD-ROM GDR8083N, 0K04> SCSI0 5/cdrom removable  — neither is removable (the docking station is not exactly hot-pluggable) nor can it write. It can read various kinds of DVDs, CD-ROM, CD-R, CD-RW, but not burn any ☹ And since the lid seems to be custom-fit, I probably cannot simply take odem’s DVD-ROM/CD-RW slim drive either. That said, the sparc still cannot read CD-RW either… must discover some CD-R media…

I had a good laugh at J�rg “schily” Schilling learning English: &dp[14] /* Hunreds of a Seconds */ — That he doesn’t grok licencing is already well-known, so no need to bash that again.
