hey, I have a new patent

I got a surprise on Saturday.  I opened my mailbox and discovered a letter from a patent certificate company congratulating me on my latest patent.  What?  I submitted that puppy four years ago!  Man!  that's a long time to wait.  What's the patent on?  It protects the idea I developed for aggregating devices to find a common cause for hardware problems.  It's the method I implemented in the Solaris Crash Analysis Tool's dev busy command and I documented in this article. The patent is available for review on Free Patents Online.

Now to bug the powers that be at Sun for my certificate and $$$ reward :)

Don't ya just love toys and taking them apart to see how they work? To me it doesn't matter if it's an iPod, a laptop, or the biggest baddest thing a company makes. And nothing makes me more happy than showing how easy it is to develop stuff on Oracle Solaris.
