Whoa. Nice to see that KernelTrap is alive and well once more.
I used to come here a lot, back when I was a idealistic larval hacker who tried to write stuff for netfilter and kept getting flamed down by all the experienced hackers on the netfilter-devel mailing list. Not any more.
Now I'm a grown-up cynical veteran hacker who hacks the old devfsd program (devfsd is the userspace companion of the 2.4/2.6 devfs filesystem, but since devfs is dying, devfsd is going away as well), and gets flamed by its creator, who wakes up the moment I upload it to ibiblio! Ugh >:( Too much flamage......
Anyway, I've since moved on to college, got a new computer, lost interest in Q3A, gained interest in DooM 3, Stargate SG-1, LOTR and the upcoming Athlon 64 (/ME WANTS THAT!) and now occassionally hack the odd program, like devfsd and tcpscan, the TCP scanner app written by whats-his-name.
Life is good; my social life is far better at college than it used to be in high school; I'm growing up, getting drunk, chatting up girls, and having a hell of a good time (with the occassional lapse into obscurity, but it happens to everyone), and so on and so forth.
If anybody wants copies of my hacked versions of devfsd and/or tcpscan, send me an e-mail at $USERNAME@NO_(BLEEPING)_SPAM.YAHOO.COM (parse that accordingly).
Nice to be back!
