Paper deadline was today, I have to set up a large survey this week, but I am
starting to surface again from this insane series of deadlines. There is a lot
of FreeBSD Kernel work coming up, hopefully both at work and at home.
I have already poking at an implementation of UDP Options, there is also the
possibility of me being given a TCP ABE implementation to port. For this work,
unlike the stuff I did before for NewCWV I am going to provide a solid set of
tests in the form of VM images. To do that I will need to figure out generation
of images from just a git commit id.

I have finally after nearly a year started setting up data stores with git
annex, I am going to try it out with my stash of datasheets, documents and
books for a while. If it holds up to what I expect I will use it for the rest
of my static binary media, video, audio and images.
I have also been revisiting the infuriating torture of learning haskell, with
the real world haskell book. I did a haskell course and uni and it was
horrible, so far the real world haskell book has been equally unenjoyable and
git annex is written in haskell so the two things sort of tie together. Not
that I plan to hack on git annex.
