My time management skills suck, but I'm trying to find
practical ways to make more efficient use of my time and
arrange more time to do some hacking.
One experiment I would like to try is to start coming into
work an hour early and allow myself a little time to
hack on something that I find personally interesting and
which might be useful for work. I'm hoping this would
be a good strategy to get myself in the right mindset
each morning and hopefully improve my productivity
overall. I'll start once I can manage a full night of sleep :)
Lately, I've been having some interesting issues with some
interesting and difficult people. One guy seems to have
this 'Cable Guy' complex where after speaking with me for
fifteen minutes, believes he's my best friend. I don't know
about you guys, but I find this a little disconcerting.
Speaking of difficult people, I could tell you all all sorts of lurid recent stories about Furries, freeloaders, people who won't shower, guys who like rough trade, etc etc. But I won't. This is a family show, right?
I turn 25 on the 3rd, so I'm starting to feel a little older. At any rate, it's a pretty good excuse for a party :)
I'm pondering doing a photo-essay of my local area (West End) for my own amusement, but I think I'll need to plan my
run in detail beforehand and arrange to have the means to get the images scanned.
Not unlike fifty million other people, I believe that you're
totally missing the point of playing with Open Source software. Remember that most OSS people hack because it's fun, because they're good at it, or a combination of both. Also remember that in capitalism, an object's worth is governed by how much people are willing to pay for it.
Why should the world pay you for your work if it's not useful to them? Why does the world owe you a living?
Notice how very few other people are whining about how unfair the world is for not giving them a living because they're so special and talented and genuises with multi-hyper-complexity and all that guff? I didn't think
Just when we thought Mr Glazer was about to pull his head in
and actually refrain from
stirring the shit with his hateful rhetoric, he's at it
Dude, you're an idiot. There are plenty of other sites on
the net for that sort of thing, and unlike Advogato, they're
full of like-minded uneducated twits like you, where you'll
actually fit in. Do you think that if you post enough crap,
we'll start masturbating over Israel and hating Arabs as much
as you? Seen your diary rating lately? File your
crap in the appropriate forum, not here.
