Quotes of the week

As every parent knows, a tidy bedroom is very different from a messy one. The number of items in the room may be exactly the same, but the difference between orderly and disorderly arrangements is immediately apparent. Now imagine a house with millions of rooms, each of which is either tidy or messy. A robot in the house can inspect each room to see which state it is in. It can also turn a tidy room into a messy one (by throwing things on the floor at random) and a messy room into a tidy one (by tidying it up). This, in essence, is how a new class of memory chip works.

"RFC" always worries me. I read it as "Really Flakey Code"
Andrew Morton

Sorry for the late response, was too busy drinking with other kernel developers in San Diego and laughing at all you that are still doing real work.
Steven Rostedt

Yes I have now read kernel bugzilla, every open bug (and closed over half of them). An interesting read, mysteries that Sherlock Holmes would puzzle over, a length that wanted a good editor urgently, an interesting line in social commentary, the odd bit of unnecessary bad language. As a read it is however overall not well explained or structured.

Alan is awesome. His dry humour is (sorry guys!) up there with that of the world-famous Lwn-editors.
