08:08:59 # Life Earthquake. There was a very strong earthquake in Niigata, second in two years. It's not too usual to have two consecutive earthquakes this size. People in Tokyo are mostly fine, but we expect electricity problems this summer. We rely on nuclear plants in that region to supply our electricity.

09:50:37 # Life qemu user emulation. I was reading Qemu User emulation wiki page, and 306637, and noticed that I could invoke ld.so directly. The main problem I encountered when running qemu (shared library version) within chroot was that the fact that the name of ld.so can be the same for different architectures (mips and amd64 being an exception). If I can directly specify the path to ld.so, then I can work around that. I can even use the --library-path command-line option to work around the problem of not having a shared library path (last time I used /usr/lib/tls/i686/cmov, but that's not something I can take advantage of on every arch)
