early morning, EST
Heh. Despite my convictions and concerns about the GPL, I find
that I have made changes to a GPLed package. I did not realise
it was GPLed when I modified it for my own purposes, but
discovered the fact when I wanted to contribute the changes back
and outward. I double-checked before sending the mail, and it is
cool with my employer (under certain non-onerous conditions, like
not doing it on company time), but I still feel weird about it. Thought
We made the session selections for
last week; we chose 74 sessions from the 165 proposals
submitted. The schedule will be posted later this week,
and registration will open as well.
I have been doing some work in my spare time enhancing
one of my Perl text processors. It started out as a lightweight
way to maintain a single file with some variable content, but
I have been adding features lately as the ideas occurred to me.
A little more work and I will post it on Freshmeat.
Tired, but so what else is new? Insurance sucks; we have
been getting yanked around and overcharged for months
for some lab work and office visits; I have no intention of
paying for things covered by the insurance. I had an
appointment with my dentist yesterday, but he called
Monday to say he had to cancel because my insurance
company did not renew its contract with him. Bugger;
having him in the plan was one of the reasons we stayed
with that plan when the selection had to be made last October.
Now it is January, when the choice goes into effect, and
they have kicked him out. Grrr.
I have been exchanging some email with artist/author Donna
Barr, whose work I really like. Quite cool. My correspondence
with Alexei Panshin seems to have petered out; looking at his
Web site, it appears he is more obsessed with Heinlein than
I thought. Get a grip, Alexei; in its own way, your stuff is better
