Comment: Your old school is new school to embedded (Score 4, Insightful) 429 429

If you're into programming, think about moving into the embedded. I work for an embedded company, and I recently got the company to realize that remote gdb works pretty well.

When your connection is only over ssh, telnet, or *gasp* serial, your old school will be very handy.

Bug

+ - A BIND bug you never heard of->

Garion911 writes: Several months ago, I discovered a BIND bug. When BIND is a slave, the master can send some bad data in the zone. When a query for that bad data comes in, it crashes BIND. This is fixed in the most recent versions of BIND, but anyone hosting DNS with BIND will want to upgrade! Read more details here.
