GPIB RPM again

Another reason to blog again is that someone read my post about GPIB
packaging and enquired whether he could download the package or spec
file from somewhere. I've now made the latest spec file plus some patch
files available at http://www.ini.uzh.ch/~amw/linux-gpib/
Note that it's only known to work for openSuse 11.2 at present.

Time to blog again

Shortly after my last blog entry, I was re-assigned to a new project. I didn't really feel I could blog about it, since at the time the project had no other web presence. So I stopped blogging altogether. Since then, a lot of water has flowed under the proverbial structure built to span a valley, road, body of water or other physical obstacle. Notably, for me at least:
  • I met Alan Cox at a conference (he's the one with the beard, I'm the one crouching down to talk to him with my back to the camera in the bottom left hand corner);
  • I moved house;
  • I learnt Python;
  • I learnt Java.
One of the things I've worked on has been the home page for that new project, CX3D, a tool for simulating the growth of cerebral cortex in 3D, so I've no more excuses for not blogging anymore. Let's see how long I go on for this time :-)
