Hello

Hi! I've been planning to introduce myself to the blogosphere for a while now. I've been tweaking a draft of my initial posting, describing both what I do and what the Logical Domains (LDoms) project I'm involved in is all about, for a couple months now, but the pace of work on our virtualization stack for Sun's SPARC sun4v based platforms (LDoms in eight words) has been preventing me from finishing and posting it.

So why am I posting now? And not at all with what I had initially planned to use to introduce myself? What got me off my duff was Josh Simons' Why Blog? entry. I already understand the benefits of blogging to Sun, its customers, and our own engineering community. But what compelled me to respond was his comment: "...one of you growing up had Howard Stern for a summer camp counsellor". Well, I couldn't just let that comment lie there. Yes, Josh is referring to me.

The year was 1974, the camp was (the now defunct) Wel-Met, and this was no ordinary summer camp experience: Imagine 40 15-16 year old kids, three counselors, and one chartered bus, traveling cross-contry for six weeks, camping out every night. That was the Wel-Met Western Trip. One of those three counselors was a relatively quiet, unassuming guy named Howard Stern (we knew him as Howie). Look here for some photos from our trip.

Okay, enough of that. My goal with this blog is to talk about what we're doing with LDoms, as well my role in the project. I'll tend to stick mostly to technical topics, ranging from a high enough level for my family to understand, to nitty-gritty details only a true geek would enjoy.

I will post my previously planned introductory entry next. But first, thank you Josh, for your none too subtle attempt at goading me into joining the conversation.
