A mean idea to call my own

I've spent some time the last few days working on MacOS kernel module stuff for OpenAFS. At the moment, trying to fix something which we'd previously left unimplemented, I've got a situation that results in a deadlock. I can, to a limited extent, figure out where, but not why.

Many people have people they can talk to when they get stuck. I appreciate that as someone who started with a mature distributed system, I am standing on the shoulders of giants, and so I don't think I'm anyone special. This just drives it home. It's not so much that it's lonely at the top. It's lonely on the shoulders.
