You are pure, you are snow, we are the useless sluts that they mold:

  • You know a band has hit the mainstream when a 40year old checkout person tells you they are "a brilliant band". I knew the Manics had sold out, but it had never hit me till today.
  • Did the biggest food shop ever. I'm never going to need to buy food for the rest of my life. 30quid (although that did include a 7quid CD). Got lots of cool food now.
  • Was sitting in a revision lecture about Baysian Belief Networks, when I suddenly switched off and started thinking about how I (or someone else) could implement scaling gnome-canvas-text items. Came up with the solution that there could be a cache of all the zoomed in levels, so when it draws the item, it actually uses the larger size. When I switched back on again there were lots of squares drawn on the board and I've no idea what they were all about. I'm going to blame Harold if I fail KBS
