Interesting Assignment

Recently in my graduate level operating systems course, we were assigned to make a networked semaphore manager.  Essentially, client machines can connect to the semaphore manager and ask it to control access to SOMETHING.  In our case, we’re just proving a point, so we’re controlling access standard error.  It’s an interesting problem because coding anything over a network is tough.  Secondly, creating a reliable semaphore manager is tough on it’s own.  To make matters worse, we’re using a hosted environment called Inferno.  Inferno was once created by Bell Labs, but is now distributed by Vitanuova.  For reference:

LimboOh, and it’s due in two days.  Taking a bit of time off was nice, but probably not the wisest decision.
