Dear Diary! I got certificied as Journeyer by my friend shapr. Cool, but my global level is still Observer. I must be too far away from the seeds.
Unfortunately, the graph library I used (FGL) feels kind of strange. My "naive" program quickly exhausted my 512 megabytes of memory, throwing the machine into thrash mode. (I've always found it amusing to see people wearing "Thrasher" T-shirts, by the way.) However, because I like "naive" programming, I've just decided to make my own graph library. Finding my distance to the nearest seed will have to wait until it's finished. ;-P
It's funny how quickly I can completely lose interest in practical problems ("What's my distance to the seeds?") in the light of solving something more abstract ("Write a graph library kind of like FGL but cooler, and with which my program works better.").
Anyway, I fully expect the following events to happen next (in any order):
Wow, I just finished the slides for my Haskell talk
(to be held at 21C3).
Another Sunday in burst mode.
And strangely, it's fun... I think, I'll do it again.
Oh, and I'm writing an entry into a weblog, for christ's fucking sake! Yeah, there's a swear. I feel much better now. What is everybody's obsession with 'blogging? I don't feel like finding out, actually. But I can hardly resist the urge myself, to unleash on an unsuspecting world, the shocking facts that be. For example: I'm going to start a game of VGA-Planets soon. Nooo!? It's not true! Is it?
I guess the 'blog is giving me a chance to feel special. Thank you, 'blog. ...Blog.
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.
