More bullets

I’ve got a number of little items, so more roundup:

  • How much disruption happened in DragonFly after introducing a dynamic device system?  Surprisingly, very little, as most of pkgsrc still builds.  Thanks are due to Hasso Tepper for the corrective work.
  • _why makes some very perceptive comments.
  • Jordan Gordeev’s been working on the very difficult AMD64 port as part of his Summer of Code work.  He says thanks for the help, and others reply in kind.  Speaking of which, it’s possible to boot 64-bit DragonFly now, though it’s not production-ready.

  1. He seems to have vanished, suddenly.

    The original quote was along the lines of “For program immortality, write games. All other applications stop working after a while, but people rewrite and emulate entire processor architectures just to play a game again.” Of course, he said it better.

    Wait, I found it: “if you program and want any longevity to your work, make a game. all else recycles, but people rewrite architectures to keep games alive.”
