Life remains as hectic as ever – day-job still amazingly busy (but good-busy) and things are in the same state at home: I’m typing this entry from my in-laws house in Carrickfergus, where we’ve retreated for the week while we get some building work done to our house [ we’re dry-lining the interiors of all external walls, which hopefully will make for a less chilly winter, but it’s a messy job, and E’s creche is shut for 2 weeks. Migrating north seemed like the sane thing to do ]

As a result of the above, I haven’t been able to give OpenSolaris the attention it deserves, except where my day-job contributes to it of course :-) So, with some amount of guilt, here goes with July’s (slightly shorter than usual?) news report – as always, please add missing stuff to the comments section.
