git-lkml for stupid people (like me)

OK, as Stephen recently asked why there is a double inclusion of in kernel/sysctl.c (and I asked Greg and Randy); I finally decided to write a patch to the LKML for possible inclusion.

But, git ain’t easy for people like me (who are used to the easiness of say – subversion or even cvs). So here’s what I did (thanks to Fernando for the help earlier today):

Now you should have a mailable patch, ready to be sent upstream that looks like this:

And if you wanna delete the branch afterwards again, just do this:

continued #gentoo-dev fun

OK, today I finally took the steps of adding Hans (that’s Hans de Graaf), and just after I kicked him from #gentoo-dev so he gets his +o and suddenly Astinus took over .. but see for yourself ๐Ÿ˜€

#gentoo-dev fun

O boy, have I had a wonderful evening. I was watching We were heroes (after the eponymous book “We were heroes … and young“), while I took a peak at #gentoo-dev and look what I found:

Mood sucks

christel, you remember the mood-swings we were talking about ?

I think I’m undergoing just another ๐Ÿ™ I’m currently pretty much pissed. Basically everything is pestering me currently (except #gentoo-dev and Gentoo work).

Work just ripped another piece of me (hah, thanks VMware & BigBlue). I started the day with a ice cold shower (if I’m talking about ice cold it was ice cold), they’re currently replacing our old gas heating and unfortunately that means no warm water at all! *arg*


Ok, I know I’ve been absent the last 2 or 3 days (but only in the evening). I know Seemant ๐Ÿ˜› and I’m pretty sorry for that.
As some of you may know, I recently aquired a Linksys WRT54GL to replace my stupid, crappy Netgear WG602 (which, sorry for the words, is completly junk right now).

I managed to flash an dd-wrt image to it, right the first day I got it. But a recent update made it broke and now I’m completly unable to reflash the device (as in bricked).

And I’m about as lazy on the evening as hardworking on the day. So I ordered another one just yesterday. It should arrive today (hopefully) so that I get the damned wireless back.

The other thing currently is, that work is getting pretty stressing. Everyone (of my co-workers, mostly the young ones) is pestering me with his/her problems (and my main problem being, that I can’t ignore that, because I care pretty much for most of them). Plus provisioning is on my tail because of some damned provisioning processes.

Gentoo-wise I’ve recently come to know some of the #gentoo-dev people (yeah, thats you Chris and Christel) along with kloeri, kingtaco (heya :P), fox2mike and not to forget Joshua. I really think they are pretty amazing from a people POV ๐Ÿ™‚

Another thing I wanted to say: thank you Diego for the work you did with kde-3.5.4 (especially the prerelease thing)
I’m looking forward to September, who knows maybe I’ll meet one of the two in Munich (along with some other people).

Ok, I’m now finished with my morning tea (some nice green mate tea) and will now start eating my pudding ๐Ÿ˜› (white chocolate and normal chocolate with cream).

P.S.: christel, I really liked that poem, thanks a lot ๐Ÿ™‚

P.P.S: Chris, lol ๐Ÿ™‚ nice visual-ascii-faces ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve not yet had the time to take a look (as in hear) your “songs” ..

P.P.P.S: tsunam, I hope you excuse me for not blogging about my puzzle yet, I promise its the first thing I’ll do on the weekend

Chris (the White variety)

Hrm, I think I tortured christel a bit too much, earlier ..


Actually Chris, I think that was your and Diego’s comment(s) in combination with esammer (thanks for the decent laughing flash I had btw ๐Ÿ˜ฎ )
