JAPH. (That's right -- I'm not Really Inexperienced any more.)

I'm not just here, I'm here [], and here [] too, I ramble randomly in my philosophical blog [] and my other blog []. Soon I'll come in a convenient six-pack.

Five Quick Things

[ #5048 ]
  • I haven't finished the journalizer; far from it, because of an impulsive birthday purchase. (If you're interested, check Fifty/Fifty.)
  • I've realized that -- once again -- my knowledge is exceeding my experience. I know how to write something that'll parse a web page -- it's not beyond me -- but I haven't done it properly yet, so I'm finding it hard to start. I've had this problem before, so I need to start watching it and trying to do more little things now and again.
  • Just made abbot. I feel fairly guilty about it, though, due to my low lurk/post ratio. (Hey, there should be some sort of 'days never posted/number of posts' ratio on user pages. Maybe I could write something to calculate one, as a little thing. ;) )
  • I realized in the supermarket today that I will probably never be as good and flexible a cook as I want to be, at least for a few years. I feel okay shelving it for now and trying again in a few years, perhaps, though.
  • I was absolutely blown away by clintp's fork explanation. Now I get fork. It'll be a bit before I can use it effectively, but now I understand it.

Quick Addendum: Just in case you went there and didn't see it, the impulsive purchase was an Xbox.

Loading... please wait.
  • Guy, "So, I'm uh mostly liquid!"

    I think you mean *high* lurk to post ratio.
    Big div small eq Big. ;-)
    Were that I say, pancakes?
    • I think I meant low *post to lurk* ratio.

      My internal perfectionist prevents me from posting because of twiddly little slip-ups like that. :\


      You are what you think.
