[Dang Netscape sucks. My brother showed me his webpage which promptly killed Netscape, and my partial advogato entry. Doh!]

Odd. I feel a disturbance in the trust network. :) This morning I discovered that I had been certified by more people (thanks, whoever you people are), but that my overall trust level dropped back to Observer. I don't get it.

Update: Weird. I'm back at apprentice again. I don't get what happened.

In other news, we had a bomb threat in the building where I work. It's got a whole bunch of laboratories and offices. The police "inspected" the building and decided to let people back in. My boss and I wondered how the police are supposed to tell the difference between a bomb and a vacuum pump, or a lithium oven. Heck, any complex electronic device could be a bomb. I don't get it. Oh well, I've decided that people who make bomb threats are jerks.

I've decided that I don't like programming with a mouse. LabVIEW is a neat concept (graphical programming), but it is fairly cumbersome to do anything other than data-flow style programs. Loops are kludged in for completeness. I want source that is a text file, not a picture. I can't grep a picture.
