Don't mess with the guy with the way-back machine, Dave

Did much LAM work today, and very little dissertation work. :-(

The good news is that pending some final approvals and Arun finishing his part of the FAQ, and Brian making the RPMs, we should be ready to release! We're waiting on the approval of some of the Llamas, and then I might release it to the Linux distributors (RedHat, SuSE, etc.) and let them give it a final test -- just to ensure we didn't do anything stupid.

I did find one bug tonight; not in the MPI functionality itself, but in the new program lamnodes, which I fixed up. Amazing that it lived so long. We'll have to think of a way to test that kind of stuff -- our current test suite really only tests MPI things, not LAM things.

I'm downloading the new Mandrake 8.0 beta; I'll install it on my laptop. It has some things in it that I really want to try out (Eazel, Nautilis, Evolution, KDE 2.1, etc., etc.). I haven't used my laptop seriously in a while, so there's nothing important on it --
this is a perfect opprotunity to wipe it clean and try out 8.0.

Not much else exciting happened today. Did a bunch of house followup stuff, and, as I've done before, I'll spare you all from the boring details. Suffice it to say that everything is proceeding right on track, and things look good for Monday. T-5 days.

373 of the current processes running on queeg are xmms; that's 80%.
