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

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

Derailment

[ #836 ]
Meant to get started on the CGI this afternoon; a minor crisis and a few hours of waiting around for someone who was supposed to clean my house today, and I'm good as new. (Well, I need a shower, but that's irrelevant.)

My plan is to pick up my SO at work and then throw myself directly at the algorithm. I have a rough cut of it; I just need to work over it in my head and see if it'll work (the algorithm, that is - I don't even know how to use the CGI module yet except for the barest notions).

Realistically, I may get entangled in the dinner rush.

Regardless, I have a new tool to work with: An excerpt from Polya's _How To Solve It_, directed at the process of solving any problem. I hate not being able to buy the book, but such is the life of someone with no current job.

Assuming I get a decent algorithm put together within the next ten hours or so, I'll slap it in here along with the prototype.
