The Bag of Holding

Is it bed time yet?

Posted by ApochPiQ, 08 April 2006 · 72 views

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...

So today I dragged my sorry butt out of bed at the unholy hour of 8:45 AM. At 9, our meeting started, and it ran for over 3 hours. Virtually all of the issues that directly concern me (at least for the immediate future) were hammered out, which is good.

The topic of discussion today is a very hefty system that will, among other things, automatically...

There's too much stuff in my brain. I want to get some of it out. Sadly, I am not aware of a way to separate brain-stuff from actual brains; this means that, should I want to get brain-stuff out of my head, I would be required to also remove brains themselves. I am not particularly attracted to the idea of being separated from my brains. They do nice things...

Blah, blah, blah GINGER. Blah blah.

Just a quick dump of thoughts here before I stumble off.

If you haven't already, check out the Pragmatic Programming Language for the Future discussion going on in the Software Engineering forum. There's some absolutely excellent feedback coming together from this thing, and I think that with some real effort, we might actually have a winner on...

It's aliiive!

Wow, that generated substantially more (and more positive) response than I had expected. I guess it shouldn't come as much of a shock to me that others are feeling the need for a better toolkit, but I would have expected at least some backlash against the heavy-handed pragmatism [grin]

Yes, there's a real risk here of hitting "linguistic bloat" and trying...

Linguistic Wishlist

Posted by ApochPiQ, 27 March 2006 · 146 views

I'm really starting to get interested in the notion of building a new programming language. Every language I've ever used has had some really glaring shortcomings and problems, even aside from the normal quirks and personality flakiness that any language is going to have as a matter of course.

Now, I have no formal training in PL theory. Some people might...

A Day in the Life

I've been wanting to do this for quite some time, but just never really got to it. My last attempt didn't turn out so well as a journal entry, but did very nicely at helping me track my own work habits. So I'm going to give it another shot.

9:45 AM
I stumble over to my cell phone and turn off the extremely annoying alarm. This is the fourth time it's...
