New Ports committer, Alexander Logvinov, avl@

with 2 comments

Short story long, I was privileged to meet Greg Larkin, glarkin@, at BSDCan 2009. We were chatting during lunch time one day and he says something like, “I really should mentor somebody”. I told him I would take him up on the offer in the near future.

That moment arrived, to co-mentor avl@.

Congratulations Alexander, may your pointyhats be elusive :)

Dennis Herrmann worked very hard since receving his port commit bit, and today miwi and I set him free.

Good luck Dennis, and remember, I like chocolate chip cookies :-)

Day 2 at BSDcan

without comments

My brain hurts.

I sat in sessions today, and hung on the speaker’s every word, trying to cram in as much as I possibly could.

Epic fail. SEGFAULT. Core dumped, brain fried.
