Life is unbelievably complicated!

I had a nice time with Zack this weekend and got to talk to him a bunch, have dinner, and do some errands.

I found my CueCat and scanned a bunch of books. (I hadn't scanned anything since moving, because I misplaced the CueCat when I moved, so that's quite a few books already.) I still haven't published my scripts, just because I'm ashamed of how ad hoc they are. No great elegance, generality, modularity; just quick hacks. And they work really well, but I'm still ashamed to publish them.

I talked to Zack a bit about computer chess, and he showed me a really excellent chess-playing program called Crafty. We're curious whether we could make this run on a Mosix cluster (say) and do deeper or faster game tree searches. I wish we had some extremely strong players to make Crafty play against in case we managed to make that work.

I'm planning to see my cousin Ronnie on Monday night.

I wrote a poem called "Infandum: for March 26".
