Nice to see you again - I've noticed your nick a number of times here. And now I speak as a researcher in programming languages and their implementation - what a huge change.
I'd wondered what you'd been doing when you dropped out of UML hacking :)
Just like to say thanks for the UML work over the years, it kept my firewall happy for many years before that machine croaked its last and I switched to a Soekris... UML seems to have been obsoleted by qemu now, which is in a way a shame: it did a lot of things in interesting and unusual ways, and I'm fairly sure nobody else had ever abused ptrace() quite as badly (given the number of ptrace() bugs UML teased out, I think we can be sure of it).
