Here it is, only a year late:


It's still a work in progress, still only theoretical, but I'd
welcome any thoughts from those of you who understand the deeper
workings of filesystems in Linux, before I go and make a fool of
myself broadcasting my theory to the unwashed masses at Slashdot, etc.

I presume we are meeting up tomorrow on the 2nd Thursday as usual?
I have no talks planned as yet, but look forward to hearing yours.
If it was Wednesday this month then I guess I'm late...
