Linking MonoTouch into Reference Assemblies

Jonas Follesø made a nice Visual Studio 2010 extension to allow for loading and compiling MonoTouch projects in Visual Studio. This requires us to copy over some dll files from a Mac computer to the computer running Windows. Once in a while a new version of MonoTouch is released and this process needs to be repeated. Since I am lazy I do not want to do this copy/paste work so I made a small bash script for this which copies the stuff over into a shared folder on my PC called VSMonoTouch. The folder is hard linked to the Reference Assemblies .NETFramework v1.0 folder. So the script looks as follows The script lives in the Windows shared folder, such that when ran it copies it into it. I also link the VSMonoTouch folder the Reference Assemblies like so When a new version of MonoTouch is released I simply run the script :)

Reiser4 FS update on SourceForge

I just read a news post on slashdot about Reiser4 FS was updated on SourceForge very recently and it seems that it is still being developed, even though Hans Reiser was convicted for murdering his wife. This news stirred up some very funny comments, which I will posts a couple off them here:

If you can find any name that's not related to murdering your wife, go for it. Bonus points if it's catchy.

My vote for MRDRFS.
a reply from tobiasly:
REDRUMFS. As long as you don't use it for mirroring, no one will know.
A comment from serviscope_minor:
There's going to be a few off color jokes. May as well get started.
* It's a killer filesystem.
* My disk died. Was ReiserFS the murderer?
* It's more cutting edge than Reiser's knife.

There are probably more jokes in the comments.
