Now the severe beating of a high-school science teacher

Saturday, 22 September 2007

The following companies, or people, are using xen-shell with their Xen hosting product(s):

I'm sure there are more, but I've been lax at keeping track. I do want a list, if only for advertising purposes. I'll update the list here if/when people point out omissions.

In other news yesterday I managed to release security updates for KDM & fetchmail which were missing i386 builds. Not good.

The problem was fixed fairly quickly once it was actually noticed, with the help of Noah. But I did get several angry emails during the wait. *sigh*

It looks like people are starting the notice the downside to having broken security buildd machines which frequently cause these kind of problems for us - so hopefully these kind of errors will diminish in time. (Who am I kidding?)

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.
