The Bag of Holding


Posted by ApochPiQ, 25 April 2006 · 92 views

I am ridiculously tired.

I have a lot of work planned out for this week that I need to get done (deadlines before I go off and lose a week at E3 next month) but I'm slipping behind.

Bleh. Sleep first, care later.

At the recommendation of a commenter on one of my previous entries (thanks, btw, even though I'm too lazy to find out who you were [wink]) I've been watching the video lectures from Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs.

It's very entertaining, because the poor HP employees are clearly getting a very concentrated dose of brain-rape....

Short Journal Entry! Anathema!

Alright, fine, I just can't do it. I can't post a short journal entry [grin]

Actually, this is really just a half post-script. I have a feeling it won't make for anything long, but usually, the stronger I get that feeling, the more wrong I am - and the longer my posts get. Oh well.

Anyways, I just realized something about myself. I was working on...

A new Books-A-Million just opened up about a mile from my apartment.

They also do not have any good books. In fact, the store is tiny, and barely has any computer-related books at all.

I'm looking for a book. (For those not inclined to suffer through my tomes, you may skip to the end [smile])

In today's society, that's not really a remarkable thing. Just pop down to your local Borders, grab a double caramel latte with whipped cream and cinnamon, and bum around scanning shelves for a couple of hours. If you absolutely must get all...

The right place for objects

During my usual bouts of procrastination, I dug back up Paul Graham's essays, thinking that I might find some useful stuff in there since my Lisp conversion. Specifically, I started reading Why Arc Isn't Especially Object Oriented, looking to compare notes with Paul's work on the Arc language (a Lisp dialect, for those not familiar with it) with my own...

Oooh bandwagon!

I just joined LinkedIn. I don't know why, as usually I avoid those kinds of things as a rule, but for some reason it sounded good. Or maybe I was just bored. Maybe I thought I'd get on this bandwagon "early" while there's still leg room. I dunno.

In any case, if you add me, make sure you get the Mike Lewis that works for Egosoft - because there's a...

Some useless pondering

Bill Amend is the smartest person in the universe.

Hang on... maybe I need to back up a bit and explain this properly.

So I was sitting around doing whatever, and suddenly, unbidden, something came to mind: an old Foxtrot comic strip where Jason writes a multimedia book report for school. At one point he's shown with a pile of thick,...

Back in the swing o' things

Well, it seems I've finally found my productivity gland again (after a three hour nap this afternoon, of course).

Stuff is flowing nicely and I should be able to get the plans for this cutscene system totally done here soon. I ran into a fun challenge today with controlling fine-grained timings for different events in a scene. My previous model was barfing...

God Wills It!

Well, if there's one thing every new Spiritual Convert needs, it's a good Crusade to fight for.

As a Newly Reformed Smug Lisp Weenie, I feel it is my deep responsibility to the Faith to join a Crusade. The thing is, I'm too lazy to see what Crusades are currently being fought, and I justify my laziness by telling myself I probably wouldn't want to...
