I had a thought today. Now don't get me wrong on this... but I think "diary" here on Advogato should be changed to "journal".

Now, I don't give too much a shit about the whole "apprentice"/"journeyer"/"master" thing and all... and I tend not to be picky at all about wording... but I just got to thinking today how that would be something a tad bit more approprate.

Think about it for a second... "diary" implies "personal"... like what you're thinking about someone, whether good or bad... your own "for yourself" log of how you feel and what you think, and what you would write in a traditional "diary", as the term is normally used, most people would never put online for everyone to read. It's like admitting to the sick fuck thoughts in your head.

The word "journal" on the other hand, refers more to something of a written log of experiences... something more written as a record of events and such, and where are journals mostly kept? In a more professional environment... something I think embodies what these logs are a bit more closely.

If it's not changed, well, I don't give a rat's ass... but I figured it would be more correct that way. What do you all think?

Changing subjects... I had a great day hanging out with yosh, slow (actually this whole weekend), mjs, stephane, vicious, and mjs and stephane's friend Rebecca... a fun day with a lot of food, laughs, silliness, hacking and such. I do have to admit that Eazel currently has a much nicer office than Linuxcare. I mean, it's a place where people can actually get work done. :)

I'm picking up steam with the cscope I'm working on... I'm not rushing things. I want to do things right...and have something that works decently... but I'm basically still in planning, and I won't leap until I feel I have a proper design in mind...
