i'm preparing my presentation for xml europe 2000... i think i'm finding out that i hate preparing presentations. one would think that it would be a good exercise in distilling one's research, lending a higher-level perspective to the entrenched soul, but it's more like a pain in the ass.

also, i found out that the conference people mangled my paper. they uglified it, and i'm assuming that's how they'll publish it. i worked too long on that paper for it to be made ugly. that was knuth's problem, so he created tex. i don't think i can live up to quite that level of intensity.

wow, diaries are a wonderful waste of time. i've avoided returning to my presentation for a good five minutes now.
