@ljs @oleksandr @jarkko @vbabka research UNIX kernel's malloc/mfree routines take the "map" as the first argument, which represents either memory space of swap

was this not actually the part SCO claimed linux stole? (edit: it fucking was! http://www.catb.org/~esr/writings/smoking-fizzle.html)

@lkundrak @oleksandr @jarkko @vbabka that doesn't bear any resemblance to reality and is extremely brain damaged.

Which sounds a lot like that whole lawsuit, allegedly etc. (given I'm in UK libel laws + all)

@jarkko @vbabka @oleksandr oh mate I am trying to avoid it lol.

Though at some point I'll have to give in...

Music has gone on hold until this damn book is done as otherwise I'd genuinely burn out, but when that's done (should be 3-4 weeks for 1st draft completion) it'll be back to synths ;)
