10 Sep 2000 wannabe   » (Apprentice)

Once upon a time, someone thought that the best way to measure your knowledge was making you a written test in which you (supposedly) would show that you knew enough to be "apt" (no, not the Debian tool). And so, exams were invented.

That person was evil! :-)

Ok, I shouldn't complain too much, as today was quite a light study day. My stomach, always helpful, decided that it would hurt all day long to make my day easier. Great, isn't it?

Anyway, studying (or more exactly: trying to study) has in me the positive effect of making me think on any other unrelated thing. It seems that the more I need to study, the more ideas pop in my mind. Weird. There must be a scientific reason for that, and I'm sure it's something bad :-)

Today's Big Idea (tm) was play a little with CDK (Curses Development Kit) for Perl. The thing has something to do with the fact that Fidonet (a BBS network, spread all over the world) is quite dead nowadays. I was thinking that maybe if the software used for it in linux was easier to configure, more people would try to put a BBS online. Or maybe not, who knows. But I need an excuse to do something with CDK, and that would be a fine one :-)

And not much more. Heat. Too much heat. Hopefully, next week weather will begin to cool down. I hope so.
