Don't count rfsd as dead quite yet; rather, as significantly side-tracked. After finishing my degree at CMU and leaving Pittsburgh I took a month of vacation, and then headed off to a new job at Amazon.com, in Seattle. With moving across the country and starting a job, I have been quite busy.
I haven't touched the project throughout that time. It's in a state of 'it works for me,' but I know that a more complex testing setup is needed before the code matures that little bit before it works for everyone.
For the moment, lack of time and a dead laptop hard drive means that I can't work on the code, though seeing that the download counter has stayed quite high, I'll certainly want to return to rfsd in the (hopefully) very near future.
