Quotes of the week

Quite frankly, most programmers aren't "supposedly bad". And if you think that the hard-RT "real man" programmers aren't bad, I really have nothing to say.

The last burst of checkins has brought Tux3 to the pointer where it undeniably acts like a filesystem: one can write files, go away, come back later and read those files by name. We can see some of the hoped for attractiveness starting to emerge: Tux3 clearly does scale from the very small to the very big at the same time. We have our Exabyte file with 4K blocksize and we can also create 64 Petabyte files using 256 byte blocks. How cool is that? Not much chance for internal fragmentation with 256 byte blocks.
