Hm... real work? After my Atari TT has died some years ago, my
involvement in the whole m68k thing has stalled quite a bit :( You
see, kernel hacking without test hardware that you can reboot easily
isn't that easy... So, personally I don't use m68k machines at all
anymore, but I still employ them for building Debian packages.
Specially kullervo, which I still actively care for (as far as my job

Great! ;) Ah, that reminds me of a little, real deployment of an m68k
machine: kullervo runs the Gnocatan meta server for a few people.
(Gnocatan is a Linux version of the "Settlers of Catan" board game, if
you know that...) It was the first non-firewalled machine that came to
my mind for that purpose, and now it does the job... :)

BTW, I've been once to Australia and I loved it! Maybe, maybe, in many
years I can go there again...

Greetings from Germany :)
