The Bag of Holding

*Cue angelic beam of light*

A funny thing happened today.

Actually, it happened a couple of days ago, but the effects have taken a bit of time to fully hit home. I was reading around in Steve Yegge's blog archives, Lambda the Ultimate, and a few other places that I forget at the moment. The other important bit of background was that I was fooling around with some concepts for the...

Procrastination and such

Well, I ended up falling asleep last night instead of working. Story of my life. I'm going to make a quick effort at making up for it today, but I have four challenges that will defy that:

My parents left Florida today and will by stopping by in the area on their way to Indiana. So my weekend will pretty much be consumed by bumming free meals off my...

Ever since I got back from Florida I've been dragging my feet. (Heck, I've been dragging my feet for quite a while now.) I finally got fed up with it and decided to sit down and try to figure out what the heck is going on. I've tried before to attack the problem analytically, with no real results; so this time I figured I'd just sit down and write...

Being in a slap-happy, hyperactive, party-like-a-hamster-on-crack mood at 2:40 AM on a Thursday really sucks.

That is all.

Mmmm... games. With sugar.

Today we got the first really official roadmap for the Next Project. I can't really give much detail due to NDA restrictions, unfortunately. The bottom line though is that we basically have about twice as much time as I was expecting to get certain major features to an alpha-complete phase.

I already more or less have my own private roadmap spelled out for...

Someone please reboot my brain.

Well, I more or less just got home. I've stuffed a few things away and cleared out the spam that showed up in my mailbox since 2 AM last night (when I last checked it), but for the most part haven't had the energy at all to unpack or anything. Being trapped in a minivan with a hyperactive five year old for nine hours has that effect on me, I guess.


Is it bed time yet?

Moving furniture into a storage unit officially sucks.

My line of work is not, shall we say, physically demanding. I don't exactly haul around large heavy objects all day as a matter of course. No, see, my lazy pasty white butt likes to sit around on soft surfaces. The most action my arms see in an average day involves moving food and beverages from...

The last two days feel like about a month. I've been running around fixing odd computer problems for all the friends-of-the-family in the area, which is always... interesting, if not actually fun. Today we took my five year old nephew and his four month old brother to the beach and hung out for a couple of hours. Huzzah for physical exercise, and...

Me no smartness.

So yeah, we're supposed to leave in two hours. I haven't even had a chance to look wistfully in the general direction of bed yet; still cramming together last-minute notes and code blobs.

This is going to be "fun." Thankfully, I don't have to drive.

The Great Journey commenceth!

So tonight I have to shut down all my equipment and pack up for my trip down to Florida tomorrow. I'm actually already packed except for all the last-minute stuff like toothbrush and such. That, and I have to get my laptop set up with VPN connections and such so I can work on the road.

For the next several days, I will be unavailable to harass GDNet...
