There was an excellent Haifux meeting last night. 8 people gave lightning talks on various subjects, with a mostly-common theme of retro computing. I gave my “world’s smallest kernel” aka “here’s how to write a bootsector” talk, which went ok, I guess. (tarball with the code). I particularly enjoyed Oron’s talk (various old Unixes running on a pdp11 simulator…), guy’s “ascii art” talk and Alon and Boaz’s talks (almost full talk list available here).

It was also nice being in Haifux again after a long time and mostly listening. I forgot how much I enjoy the geeky atmosphere and conversations.

Amazon was kind enough to inform me this morning that Dan Simmons has a sequel to llium coming out. Now to wait for the paperback…
