Body: Started a license audit of the LLVM source files (see in preparation for Debian packaging (urk, 12K+ files). So far, I'm amazed at the number of files out of the borrowed GCC front-end that have _no_ copyright or ownership info directly in them and rely on the COPYING/README file to cover them. Very sloppy, IMHO. Ate way too many of Eileen's Cookies (mmm...molasses...).

Body: Made some updates to JOTWeb and released a new version. This version includes the ability for a site administrator to have tracebacks of bad code e-mailed to them, as well as a hook for doing something interesting with the exception in their own code. Skif was looking at OCaml, which reminded me of Lucent's Inferno and Limbo. Nobody else seems to have heard of either of those though. Looking at a users site, watching as it took 3 minutes and 200MB of RAM to render the page, and the results pretty much killed my firefox, losing all my opened tabs in the process. I guess I'll recover my ~/.firefox directory from a backup when I get home.

Body: Located a patch to build the guest 2.6 kernel for user mode linux. Tried to figure out an issue with my crontab running jobs on UTC instead of localtime. Between all of the different time reporting/adjusting tools (date, hwclock, and redhat-config-date) and the fact that they sometimes showed different times when run as root than as my user, I don't know if I fixed it, but consider myself lucky to have been able to put things back to the time they were on before. Worked more on exercises from chapter 9 of Learning Python.
