Jetlag caused me to not get any good sleep in my trip to Paris. On Friday I was woken up at 3:30pm by the hotel staff asking whether they could clean the room. Oops. I overslept.
I am a fan of Fabrice Bellard since he wrote lzexe on the DOS days. He later wrote the smallest C compiler, then Tiny C Compiler, QEMU, FFMPEG and many other wonderful hacks.
Olivier blogged our dinner with Guy Lunardi from Novell here.
It was a pleasure to interrogate them about their hacking projects and to get the history behind Fabrice's projects.
