Well, I just read this, and now I'm hungry, thinking about pita with hummus. You seem to be an evil magician.

Bah, the encrypted USB jumpdrive I store my gpg private key on just died. Thank God I made a backup on another encrypted drive. Now only if I can figure out what the passphrase I used for that backup!

+Steven Rostedt Don't be too optimistic. You'll live longer than that.

When you look at a patch, and all your mind says is "I wonder what is happening on G+", taking a 2.5 mile walk sets things right again.

If you really have to know, it was this patch:

Grumble,  I really hate it when a git bisect for a crash ends on a commit that just modifies documentation. And it's not even a comment in code. It's the help text in a config file.

Now to search where the bisect failed.

Reminds me of bisecting the "your multi_defconfig kernel became too big to boot" problem...

Subject: Reminder: End of Support for Windows Server - Webinar - March 25

Really? How the heck did I get on this spam mailing list. And this was to my Red Hat email address!

I am sure you commented sometime somewhere that it would be a good idea to migrate some machine from Windows to a linux distro.  For the email that theiy choose, clearly you suggested Red Hat.

See????  There is not so difficult to find a valid reason to receive SPAM.  Now search for one explanation for the ones about penis enlargement O:-)

Hugh Grant calls my Alma Mater (where I got my Masters), "a not so great university in the middle of nowhere".

Hey, it is ranked 88 out of the 201 national universities, and for price has been listed several times as the top 10 best valued universities.

But he may be right about me living in the middle of nowhere.

I don't really care, but it is cool that they made a movie about my old university. Too bad the outside scenes were not filmed on location. But some of it was.

Ever go to bed thinking about that tough problem trying to come up with an algorithm, then wake up at 4am with a solution?

Screw going back to sleep until that algorithm is written to code :-p

The issue is, my "dream" got me down the path to a possible solution, but implementing it seems to be a game of whack a mole. Something that will not be going out for review till I have a full grasp of the situation :-)

I love it when the email I used for stripconfig.pl (stripconfig@goodmis.org), aka localmodconfig, gets spam....

"Hello stripconfig!!! My name is Evgeniya, to me of 25 years.
 I live in Russia.
I saw your your profile and you interested me very much!
I want to find the man of my dream."

+Paul McKenney I really hope that is true, so it could mobilize Linus spend some time to have something like git!!!

This can't be. After spending the day writing crazy IPI scheduling code that sends request back and forth to CPUs, after getting it to compile, it booted on my first try!

This means there's something really wrong with this patch.

Well, if it makes you feel better, earlier today I managed to mess up a patch to RCU's CPU-hotplug code.  Seems I set the bit when the CPU went offline and cleared it when it came online, the opposite of what the rest of RCU expected.  Needless to say, rcutorture objected rather strenuously.
