A report from pgCon 2013
Little things that matter in language design
It is good to see that the kernel now has address space randomization. Hopefully we will soon see good support for non-exec mappings (besides support of the NX bit on AMD64 CPUs).
2.6.12 kernel released

What's odd is that I recently installed Fedora Core 3 on my Thinkpad T30 with a P4 mobile and noticed that addresses change with each invokation of one of my applications and that trying to execute code in a not PROT_EXEC mmap'd area segfaults. But of course I'm not running this Kernel so how could I have these features already?
