I looked at the comprehensive People
page last night and saw a surprising number of Observers. I
know Advogato is gaining popularity but I didn't expect that
many uncerted people. I'm sure most of them have lots of
good input to give but they can't post in article threads
without a cert. So I browsed some of the Observer accounts
trying to give certs but most of them have no project
listings and no diaries.
Without anything to go on I can't give a cert. So new
people, put up some descriptive content! I prefer to see
project listings, but I think I can also tell a lot about
someone from diary entries - I certified jefft just based on his diary
cause it seemed clear (to me) he was a man with a clue. But
I need something to go on before I can give a cert.
Other random crap:
One of the hard drives in the 486 is making a bad sound.
don't expect it to be much longer in this world. I can
replace it with an old Conner I have, but the Conner doesn't
like to pair with another drive on the same IDE channel. It
works but it's slow. I think it creates a lot of contention
for some reason. Drat.
If all the Layer 4 protocols in the world were replaced
with some form of remote method calls would that be a win or
a lose? I'm inclined to say win.
I have something tedious to do, which I promised
work I would do tonight since I didn't do it this afternoon.
I'm trying to nurse a good buzz to the point where I don't
mind doing it. Not quite there yet. In a world with hard
cider, why does anyone drink beer?
