If all goes well this should be posted to Advogato and to zork.net.
After 2 years of stagnation, I'm yet another person testing out the XMLRPC stuff here.
Went to the park. Saw Stacy Earle, folk singer chick with band.
Went over to Beto's, the best mexican food in Reno, ate.
Rode my bike and saw The Uninvited.
Last night we had a talk about firewalling and IP Chains. The talk was ok, but the real fun was after the meeting when we headed over to the Silver Peak brewery, sat at the bar talked the future of technology, politics, and the pervasive evil in the nature of man. You know regular stuff.
On attempting to ride my bike home later that night, I continually got my shoelaces tangled in the front gear. It's weird. I ride my bike everyday, and the only time my shoelaces get stuck is when I'm drunk.
Sometimes writing software is a pain. I'm writing some software that keeps a couple machines in sync with each other. It sounds simple... but then you add users and they screw it all up. It will be cool though when it's finished.
Bah. Two months of no diary. Probably like everyone else that doesn't remember to post here.
Massive amounts of moving. Our company bought a building. We had to get a T1 installed for our office connectivity and had to move all of our major equipment in our old office into collocation space. That was what I did all July.
More recent past
New furniture! In our office that is. I have a chair that actually isn't painful for me to sit in. I can lean back really far and stretch and I don't fall out of the chair. It's great.
New desks too. I have lots of space to spread papers and stack trade magazines. Hurrah for new desks!
Cleaning the apartment. It's amazing how much space you can get when your roomate moves out, and you're not afraid to throw things away.
Going to be at Linux World Conference and Expo. This time I have a place to stay for free that isn't 30 miles from SJ. Will probably be visiting Zach up at Linuxcare since I'll be in the area.
- Red Dwarf - a few more episodes to the collection
- True Stories - great movie with David Byrne
- Box o' Monty Python episodes
- Monty Python's Life of Brian - I don't know why I didn't get this before
- Sasha & John Digweed: Expeditions - ambient dj'esque music
- Luka Bloom: Riverside - saw him last year at the Guiness Fleadh. Very cool irishy folky poppy. (description vortex)
- The Bobs: Sing the Songs of... - more vocalism
I forgot to put this in before, but we caught the Young Dubliners, a fun Irish/Rock/Folk band from LA. They're friends of a friend, and quite cool. If they come near you, you should see them. They're touring with Jethro Tull this fall too.
I've always known crypto regulations suck. There are no good interfaces from PGP to Perl, and I blame crypto regs. Sure there is GPG now, but I need compatibility with RSA keys.
Had a tremendously fun BBQ last Saturday. Jay tried sailboating, but stangely enough for Reno there was no wind.
Wow. Advogato finally seems to have forgotten my cookie. And I almost forgot my password.
Things going on
I'm learning python. That darn Linux Journal supplement has effected my brain. Yes advertising does work. Also got two fun koosh guns for work. Also due to advertising on Slashdot and Freshmeat.
New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.
