IPv6 video

This is hilarious, if not poignant:

dnet suspend/resume webrev has been posted

I've posted the webrev for the dnet suspend/resume conversion that I did for the 2007 OpenSolaris Developer Summit. Have a look.

An audio recording (MP3, 12M) of the presentation for those who weren't available to attend is available here.

Sun Opening up more...

So I recently was informed that Sr. management has directed my team to move some of the engineering work that we have been doing "internally" to the OpenSolaris web site. This is more than just moving internal web pages outside the firewall, though. This is about starting to do the actual engineering work in the open.

The first two projects that my group is going to be doing this with are the laptop suspend/resume effort and the SD card stack. (The SD card stack needs to go through some licensing approval first, as the SDA organization doesn't allow for redistribution without a license. The "open" specs are "Evaluation Only" apparently.

Anyway, this is a sign that the practices already being done elsewhere in the company (cf. the networking group) are starting to take hold elsewhere, even in demesnes that have historically been strongholds of the NDA.

Watch the laptop project page at os.o over the next week or so to see what we put up there... and there will be mailing lists for the project engineering as well!

Backyard gallery

I recently checked our pool contractor's website, and found my backyard in his gallery. It looks pretty cool on his website. Check it out here.

dmfe putback done

I just fixed a bunch of dmfe changes... most notably, the driver will now support add-in PCI cards. Look for it in snv76.
