28! and big news from C & M

At the Indian Restaurant Sunday evening
Oh yeah, while it’s still the 24th, I should probably mention — it’s my birthday today!! πŸ˜€ It was a good day — first me and the crew from work went out for lunch at Pad Thai (I had Duck Red Curry, mmm, soo good) — Jeff’s treat — and then, this evening, upon discovering Sarasota Country had YET AGAIN screwed up the field bookings (so we didn’t have lights to practice by), went to Applebee’s where I was treated to a couple 23 oz Fosters AND received six very nice beer glasses (which I so desperately needed!). Thanks Cam and Melissa!
In other news, looks like Cam’s going to be a Dad soon πŸ™‚ Congratulations you two, I’m so excited for the both of you. πŸ˜€

Hey I just realized you and Linux share the same birthday

Subject: What would you like to see most in minix?
Summary: small poll for my new operating system
Dat e: 25 Aug 91 20:57:08 GMT
Organization: University of Helsinki
Hello everybody out there using minix –
I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won’t be big and
professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones. This has been brewing
since april, and is starting to get ready. I’d like any feedback on
things people like/dislike in minix, as my OS resembles it somewhat
(same physical layout of the file-system (due to practical reasons)
among other things).
I’ve currently ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), and things seem to work.
This implies that I’ll get something practical within a few months, and
I’d like to know what features most people would want. Any suggestions
are welcome, but I won’t promise I’ll implement them πŸ™‚
Linus (
PS. Yes – it’s free of any minix code, and it has a multi-threaded fs.
It is NOT protable (uses 386 task switching etc), and it probably never
will support anything other than AT-harddisks, as that’s all I have :-(.

In addition to the comments above (and the present Cam and Melissa gave me, the card i got in the mail, the emails from Dad, Mom, Anand, and Neil, the iChat well-wishes from Ron C, lunch from Jeff yesterday, lunch from Carlos today, Davin calling me an old man), I just received three more birthday emails! It’s almost overwhelming. Such a nice feeling… to know you’re loved. Thank you all so much, it’s really made my day. πŸ˜€

A (belated) Happy Birthday Krishen!!!!!
you are invited to visit me here in upstate New York! Tell me when you are coming….

Dani, Shy thank you πŸ˜€ Dani, yes I shall most certainly have to come up and visit. After my trip to Victoria I have one vacation day left for 2004, and I’m thinking I should use it for a long weekend. Any chance you’re available between November 25-29th?
