Well everyone else has one why can't I..

I'll mainly be putting up info on work I'm doing on Open Source projects:

I'm currently involved in:

Linux Kernel - 2.6 DRM Maintainer - http://drm.bkbits.net
DRI/Mesa/Xorg - DRM Maintainer & 3D driver developer - radeon/r200/i810/i830/i915
pam_smb - my little worked on windows authenticator module for PAM.
pam_ncp - my abandoned netware authenticator for PAM.
Linux/VAX - glibc/kernel/gcc porting - I used to be quite active, I've little time now though...
Linux/MIPS - still read the mailing lists :-)

At other times I've submitted patches to
grub, etherboot, uclibc, eCos, libwmf and a few other minor ones....


Well tomorrow is a day off here, (Australia day) and after spending Sat/Sunday finding and fixing Xorg bug 2361 (https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2361) I think I'll take it off....

That bug luckily enough was work related so I can get paid for it :-)

I'm still working on ATI_fragment_shader support for the r200, I added 16 state atoms (one per instruction, not sure if better with that or just having one huge 64 word atom...)... still not sure where I hook this into Mesa, but I'm sure I'll figure it out..
