Walked one child to school with the mutts, they like the snow so much they barked all the way.
Seven people suggested that I needed a sledge in about a mile..... would have been fun if
I'd had one.
Other one off sick.
Fighting trying to copy an old audio tape onto CD on the x86 box.
I can use audiorecord and then audioplay and it sounds okay, but if I use cdrw to
blow the cd ( type aur) then it comes out all soprano.. everything says it is 44.1khz - more
#audiorecord -s 44.1k -elinear -c 2 -v 90 /var/tmp/out.au
# file /var/tmp/out.au
/var/tmp/out.au: audio data: 16-bit linear PCM, stereo, 44100 Hz
#cdrw -a -Taur /var/tmp/out.au
Looking for CD devices...
Writing track 1...done.
Finalizing (Can take several minutes)...done.
Yet it sounds like pinky and perky!
Gave up and went for a curry - My wife lets me have a curry on Friday night!
Stared at a crash dump - solaris 8, didn't make much progress, hopefully I will get
some inspiration on Monday.
Used a preload library to show that an application was the cause of the scsi error messages,
I interposed on ioctl() and if the command was USCSICMD ( man uscsi) then we print out the
command and use printstack() ( man walkcontext) and when real_ioctl() returns we printout
the status. Absolute proof if they needed it.. Of course on solaris 10 it would have been
about 20 lines of D and a much quicker answer for the customer.
Code reviewed a sd target driver fix, looks good. The process for introducing changes to
solaris kernel code is quite heavyweight but this is what has lead to the quality of the
kernel. Back in the 2.5 days crashes and hangs were easy to diagnose not anymore! now they are
subtle timing races or deadlocks involving chains of threads.
another 15 miles in the smart ( watched a loon speed in the snow - straight into a fence..)
another 0 miles for the bike...mind you there was an inch of snow.
