9:46 PM - a few ports

I've been quite busy with real life lately.  ctriv and wintellect have been working on the MidnightBSD mports system.  Our ports tree changes have been coming along nicely.  Many ports are working on i386 and amd64. 

Tonight I've been adding some benchmarking applications.  Here's a run from bonnie

This isn't a real "benchmark" since I didn't follow proper testing procedures, but its still interesting.  I'm running UFS2 on a Western Digital SATA I 80GB 7200 RPM disk, Pentium D 805 2.5 GB RAM, and an intel ICH8 chipset.
