Random ramblings about some random stuff, and things; but more stuff than things -- all in a mesmerizing and kaleidoscopic soapbox-like flow of words.
Systemtap looks promising... If it is already available for FC4, I wonder why it was less known than dtrace on the latest Boston Summit 2005...
Mikael Hallendal (Hallski): Back from the Summit
: "Arrived back from the Boston Summit 2005 earlier this morning. The flight back went well and it feels good to start the process of getting all the cheese out of my system.
Was a lot of fun to meet up with everyone again and the summit was great even though I didn't get much hacking done. I mean, it's not everyday you hear Alex comment that: 'Daniel you look like David Hasselhof' and get an 'I second that' from Jonathan.
There was a strong focus on performance which is great, we really need work done in this area. D-Trace looked really useful but at the moment is Solaris only and what I heard was intentionally made GPL-incompatible. Mark showed me SystemTap which seems to aim to provide us with better tools too.
There was a scheduled BOF for discussing IM for GNOME but it was sadly canceled. Would have been good to get something happening in that area.
