The latest issue of Dr. Dobb’s has the greatest cover art thus far (being a subscriber for three years):
I’m haulin’ ass to C++ Palooza! Actually, I’ve been there for a while and I think I’ll try All Tomorrow’s C++’s next time.
Note: For those not in the know; Lollapalooza and All Tomorrow’s Parties
Shout out: Chico in his everything-old-is-new-again digs.
I was anxious to hear the new album from A Perfect Circle and with good reason. It’s a rawking album that never needs to actually rawk.
Golf was a fertilizer-filled good time yesterday, even though I joined them on the 12th hole.
Playing courses that you’ve never golfed before is fun; blind shots and hail Mary’s abound. That’s the plan for me after work at the plainly-titled Cambridge Golf and Country Club. Most of Dena’s office, including Dena herself, are on the course right now. [sarcasm]Yes, she finds it ever so tough to maintain a job that forces her to get paid to skip afternoons of work to go golfing.[/sarcasm] I’ll be meeting up with them on their back 9, because some of us do have to work a full work day 😐
In other news, SourceForge needs to fix up their mail system. I’ve been trying to reply to a “project help wanted” and it’s bouncing back. SourceForge tech support has deemed this issue a moderate problem (level 5). Tune in for further adventures…
Spittin’ out thoughts like a lisper with a retainer and a mouthful of sour candy…
Could the project from hell be completed? Ethereal saved the day today. NFL football = makes Sundays worth while again. Sedgewick‘s stuff is a fun back-to-the-basics read, in a macabre sort of way. Chico says “hi”. Too many llamas playing Frozen Thone on BNet drop at the, um, drop of a hat. I buy into Java‘s promises and .NET scares me (it should scare you too). The Postal Service‘s Give Up is a fine side-project of synthy sweetness. I’m invincible thanks to green tea. PHP file wrappers are a pointless thing when Perl‘s I/O stuff just works (Sentex, are you listening?). I need a haircut. People are weird. So are you. But not me, though.
I’ll get organized next time.
It’s going to rain. The much-feared hurricane Isabel that was supposed to march on past the US’ east coast and into southern Ontario will probably simply bring rain (it’s drizzling right now). When the hype machine gets rolling and it’s powered by fear, watch the people flock. I believe Ned’s Atomic Dustbin had it right when they said “Kill Your Television”.
Tomorrow, I’m going to see a Baby Leafs inter-squad game. [sarcasm]I hope the Aud is still standing tomorrow, after Isabel has her way with it.[/sarcasm]
Last weekend was filled with golf and The Texas Chainsaw Masacre. Mmm, good. This week will be filled with more of the same from the past 12 weeks. FB & the C’s “Show Me Your Tears” is a fine album. All new albums that I purchase this year must make up for the horrible GbV album.
I think they’ll throw the book at Adrian Lamo. Why not free him? At least Lamo told the companies he hacked how he did it and how they can fix it. Leave this guy alone and go after annoying spammers and those lil’ script kiddies that unleash all these stupid worms and virii that make me dread reading my email.
Livin’ the open source life. Open Office, NetBeans and more. However, my neverending project for Krug is NOT open souce. Damn straight! 😉
The “take ya up 100 feet and drop ya” thingie is actually called The Drop Of Fear. And it’s not 100 feet, it’s 179. Either way, we didn’t go splat. Whatever.
We rawked The Ex yesterday. That “take ya up 100 feet and drop ya” thingie really compresses your spine. Let’s go again!
Happy Labour Day. The best part of Labour Day used to be freezing my ass off while ball-spotting during the Holinger Golf Course Labour Day Tournament. Almost every Labour Day was friggin’ cold. It could’ve been warm before Labour Day and usually was warm afterwards, but the Labour Day weekend in Timmins was always cold. Ah, the Hollinger Pro Shop with Norm Claire; best boss I’ve ever had.
It’s fun watching all the students move in. It’s a fun game trying to guess who’s going where; UW, Laurier or Conestoga. It’s even more fun watching the students get frustrated with their parents while moving funiture and stuff. Why is that fun? Because it’s not me, anymore 😉 Finally, it’s fun watching them get horribly intoxicated after the parents leave. Ah, to be a student again. Dena says that university was the best time of her life so far. I’m not sure I can agree since most of my time in university was spent with my face in front of a text book/computer or chatting with CS professors. Besides, who would want to party when you’re stuck with American beer. Yuk.
