The next minor thing is an update to the last post. I talked to David for a bit about the archival filesystem thing, and he pointed out that deletes didn't make a lot of sense in such a system. So, to clarify what I said before: the goal is to adjust filesystem semantics so that replicas can be arbitrarily out-of-date without affecting the correctness of applications. This means that there can be no deletes, and no updates to existing files. Not all applications are amenable to this sort of meddling, but many are.
Bugs: Houston has a lot more of them than Austin, and that makes me sad. :(
Anime: At Kiriska's urging, I've been watching Nodame Cantabile. (Kiriska: Why are all your recommendations so awesome, it's uncanny D:) Only halfway through the first season; may write something about it here when I finish it.
Christmas: Oh hey so it turns out I still haven't bought gifts for anyone. There's still time right?
Sleep schedule: It's not even 1 AM; why am I tired already :(
