14

Hint for subject:

final class Age {
  public static void main(String args[]) {
    System.out.println (java.lang.Integer.parseInt ("14", 32));
  }
}

It was last Friday, in fact, but I'm so absorbed by work lately that had no time for anything else.

Today I've been (somehow) gifted with the last album from Henry Snowstorm. In one word: captivating. In three words: craving for more. It made my afternoon despite having to waste it filling a powerpoint with useless project data for a Delivery Assurance meeting tomorrow. That doesn't mean I'm against DA, nope. But starting to do it when the project is nearly finished instead doing QA (fixing bugs) is a waste of time IMHO.

As a curiosity this post is being written from Safari under Mac OS 10.5 AKA Leopard. After being able to get a copy for free (free for me, not for its owner) I resized partitions in MacBook and reinstalled everything again (30 Gb isn't enough for Leopard upgrade from Tiger, but a Leopard installation from scratch takes much less space, which I discovered too late, after having doubled it). Now will see if I can use/build Claws Mail natively on it. For now I can see its display under the included X11 server, which seems to be a new feature in Leopard. Another one is "Spaces"... yep they have discovered multiple desktops now... amazing, isn't it ;-)
