Um. Me. Iain Truskett. Can be found as either Spoon or Koschei around the place, and as Braxiatel in rare circumstances. Um. Cool. Ta.

My perl svn repository [] if you want bits of code by me. Also see [] for most of them in action.

My friends [], foes [], fans [], and freaks []. And you can see what my friends are journalling [].

And everybody's journals [] (in order of updating).

Good news, bad news.

[ #7252 ]

Good news
I convinced XS to le tme export a string with NULs in it. Of course, I had to push it onto the stack myself, but nevertheless I'm happy I worked it out =) Would've seriously hindered tai_pack() otherwise.

Bad news
The machine which collects my mail, and serves my websites, and other assorted things developed a disc fault the other day when some idiot turned it off without shutting it down.
Unfortunately, I didn't notice it had disc faults until the disc was semi-corrupted. As of today, the disc map is hosed. (Regrettably, there wasn't anything much I could do with it in the meantime to fix it; it's not a convenient machine, geographically speaking.)
Thankfully, I had some backups (albeit not too recent with the exception of the web part), and the machine also had two drives (one for / and one for /home --- it's the / one that's buggered).
So I guess I'll be spending part of the weekend reinstalling the system. Joy.
Oh, and it's the machine that the books site was on, so that's definitely going to be a bit delayed until I get the machine up and running. (Although the stuff is on the good drive, it's hard to get stuff off it until I'm physically with the machine and can take it out.)
