Friday Morning I ordered an 80Gb iPod classic.
Friday Afternoon I discover Apple Cuts Off Linux iPod Users
Saturday / Sunday I follow along on IRC the reverse engineering effort
Progress is being made, but still a little bit away from having a result. In the meantime I'm ripping Megan's cds.
In other news Debian Security Advisories are being held up by missing buildd machines for several archs.
Previously I supported the position that Debian should release for 14+ plus platforms, but given the regular frustrations and delays I'm now of the opinion that we should only release for platforms that have at least two buildds - one for security, and one for regular use.
(Benefit of two? If one dies we can both use the other.)
Finally I'm still doing more SMTP work, and it is going extremely well. The next job is to wire up a payment gateway which is tedious and dull.
Update - Looks like the ipod issue is fixed. kudos to wtbw + nopcode .. and everybody else who put in the work.
