Body: Put together a patch to the 'file' command to recognize LLVM byte-codes properly; will send that to the debian bug report for it -- it was fun to play in 'file' a bit. Wrote a script to register the LLVM byte-code interpreter with the kernel so that it will execute byte-codes directly. Started playing with some timing of generated code and it so far seems competitive with GCC. While I've got a Debian package for LLVM, it still seems to need lots o' work. Very puzzling behavior with STREAMS compilation and LLVM -- as in, I prolly didn't compile it right. Must need more caffeine.

Body: Screwed around, built new kernel for the nc6000 w/ 2.6.11-rc4 + swsusp 2.1.7 + latest cvs madwifi. Now the red light on the mute button goes on when I hit it... ooooh. Installed Ubuntu's on Debian unstable, couple quirks, but mainly seems to work.

Body: Helping Roger a bit with his kernel. Got him to install KRUD FC3, the easiest way to get the 2.6 kernel. Caught up on slashdot, showed off this KVM-over-IP thing that runs VNC. Did some chatting. Ran out of steam, mostly. Tried out the new Pre-N WiFi thing, but it had huge problems.
