Olympic and ibmtr updates have made it into the pre-release kernels (there are so many of them now, from Marcelo's rc-, to Alan's rc-ac, to Davej's -dj and everybody else's that I'm not going to even try to list them all. Unfortunately the first olympic patch has caused a problem with one person's machine. Now the driver actively reports error conditions rather than just subtly ignoring them as it used to. This one machine seems to have hit upon one of the errors. Not good. Hopefully this will be an isolated case, if not it'll be back to the grindstone to create a driver that will handle all this.

Finally, only more than a year after finishing it, I updated the 3c359 driver to all the latest api's and sent it off for inclusion in the kernel. Alan and Jeff have picked it up and hopefully it will be in a kernel near you very shortly.

Perhaps more importantly though, I took and passed my private pilot check ride on Friday, so now I'm a fully qualified private pilot. (Kinda of scary really that they'll trust me with a plane !!).
