I seem to fit into the "not posting much lately" category of
advogatorist rather than the computer programmer, computer
scientist, or angry young man (notice the Oxford comma).
This has been a good week for me. Been a pretty hard
hittin' kinda guy at work. Lots of weird problems. Lots of
trouble. Lots of people calling me at 7am, which is the
best way to make it in to work at 8am. This week definitely
went by quickly. That is usually good. Finally broke down
and bought an Andrew Vachss novel. I'm not sure what I
think. It is his latest book. It is ok. Very dark.
Pretty well written. I haven't read any of his earlier
books. This is the tenth in a series about the same guy.
An anti-hero named Burke. I think I am going to have to go
to the beginning and do some reading. We'll see.
I've been working on a cgi frontend to mon. There are a few
out there but they aren't really what I want. I'm going
with more of a devpatrol kind of look. I've been
familiarizing myself with the Mon::Client module and I've
put together a mock up. Once I get some functionality I
will pull things into subroutines or maybe write a module.
I'd like it to be just a one file drop in kind of thing. It
seems like everything I write is incredibly localized.
Makes distribution difficult.
I'm pumped to see Almost Famous tonight. I think it will
totally rule. I'm psyched. I also want to see Original
Kings of Comedy. I dig Spike Lee Joints. I don't have a
car which makes it difficult to go see movies which are
located on the outskirts of town. I'm a downtown kind of
guy and all the downtown kind of movie huts have closed. It
is a shame. squiggy and I are hopefully
going to see Almost Famous tonight.
I've also been feeling kind of loopy. I don't know why.
Doing lots of ed-patter. Which I find entertaining, but
tends to annoy people. Conversation just gets kind of
boring after a while. I think I probably have ADD. Looking
at the lit Skud posted makes me wonder. Of course I always
answer yes to all those questions. When I think I am
depressed I answer yes to all the depression questions. I
don't know. I think I am dyslexic as well. I'm just a
depressed, dyslexic, ADD dude. And I think I've got
testicular cancer. The good news is that I noticed that my
body is shrugging off what appears to be poison ivy on my
arm. Last summer I got poison ivy thrice in a two month
period. It was rough. I took the prednisone cure which was
surprising effective. Worked better than my old rub clorox
bleach on it to kill the skin cells method. The good thing
about bleach, though is that it is cheap. I think I am much
healthier than last fall. I spent most of my last august
drinking, smoking and doing bad things. Clean living.
Will make. You healthy.
