Muli Ben-Yehuda's journal

SYSTOR 2007 begins tomorrow. I’m so excited I barely slept last night. I keep wondering what I forgot, what am I missing, what will go wrong. It should come as no surprise that I’m tired and cranky. But hey, on the positive side, I think I figured out at 5AM while staring at the ceiling and listening to the sleeping house a Calgary bug that had me baffled for a while. It only occurs on a new class of servers where some busses are on CalIOC2 and some aren’t, a topology we haven’t seen before.

Two papers, an editorial and a short introduction due tomorrow for the Operating Systems Review special issue on work from IBM research, which will also have selected best papers from SYSTOR. One of the papers is nearly done, the other is making steady progress, the editorial needs some lovin’ and the introduction I have yet to start. Oy.


  1. An an old iddish Koan used to say…
    “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single Oy”
    Good luck and remember – when it’s all done you’ll forget the pain and we’ll do it again…
    See you tomorrow at SYSTOR.
