I'm interested in computer graphics, algorithms, combinatorics, mathematics, and meta programming. Languages I use are Prolog, C++, Objective-C. I make graphics and educational applications.

Thanks. $ sudo chmod -s /usr/bin/login is what causes Terminal.app not to launch.

I have no idea how the symlinks and the malloc are related. The files are not less readable than before, just more writeable. Maybe something to do with the system refusing to run world writable binaries for security reason ? @HalosGhost: the files seem to still be executable.

comment How to install an old version of OpenBSD inside VirtualBox?
Just wanted to add that the default network card did not work for me. This one works: Intel Pro 1000/T Server. It's downloading base30.tgz right now.

I think you meant 'Smashing The Kernel Stack For Fun And Profit'.. which is possibly an allusion to Aleph One's Smashing The Stack For Fun And Profit (1996). And yes that's the one I'm reading.
