And now for some link review. Tony Bowden
a part of my unpublished autobigraphy
When I was at university, I would often spend days just working through all the man pages for something, testing all the different options, deciding which I liked best, and setting up my configuration accordingly.
Also found some notes on writing a monovocalic sonnet, something that may entertain my readers, esp. if you're already familiar with the writers of the OuLiPo (Georges Perec, Raymond Queneau, Italo Calvino, Harry Matthews...) Note that this guy helps his prosodic skills with Perl. Also, the sonnet he produced is a short version of Dante's Inferno, which I'm managing to quote twice in the same journal entry : kind of a personal victory.
