The ub made it to Linus tree and this means testers, which means they find totally retarded bugs. It's just unbelievable what my finest driver actually contains despite my best efforts. In one place, a NULL-terminated list wasn't. In other place, REQUEST SENSE was sent out with zero allocation length (thanks to Pat LaVarre for that one). Good heavens.

Also, I've seen some pretty silly reports where ub was blamed for system lockups on rmmod, shootdown of KAL 007, destruction of an SDDR-88, and hunger in Somalia. They are totally idiotic but considering what kind of bugs good testers found I really have no standing to dismiss these reports.

Somebody really needs to beat USBmon into shape. Maybe I. Darn it, so little time. Where are those vaunted legions of open-source programmers when you need them?

My birthday came and went quietly, I am 38 now. Fortunately, nobody but my family noticed.

Koyomi suddenly had a rush of updates in the diary not seen since March, thus overwhelming my ability to translate utterly.

I have passed the first quiz in the basic Japanese class, which was, naturally, too easy. But I am full of foreboding about what should happen when the class runs out of my Anime based language and I have to study for real.
