tinman spent a few years mucking around industry before going back to school for a Masters. Currently not enjoying the weather in North England..

He wrote Perl that looked suspiciously like C code in 1998, while working as an intern, and has been trying to cure that bad habit ever since.

random noises.. and memepools.....

[ #6784 ]

Lots of random snippets and grouses.. quite cathartic, this... :o)

True stories of a pr0n clerk.. Beware, its probably not work safe (no images, but there is language that won't pass muster with obscenity filters)..Its scary at times, a bit depressing too..

Thinking about Ovid's AI::Prolog module, it reminded me of a language that I tried out on my home machine last week.. Called Icon, it seems quite C like, but with one *IMHO* crucial difference, you can do goal directed searching, because there is a concept called "failure" for any method call.. Looks neat, and if it means anything, (no, it doesn't, really ;) WinIcon is in v. 9.xx. Why did I try it out ? because its supposed to be quite good for text processing..

In the quest for a suitable masters thesis (I want to start next year), I googled my way over to the MIT thesis list..Several hours of reading later, still no closer to finding an idea for a freaking topic (aaargh...).. Hmm, maybe that explains why I haven't kicked off the application process yet.. (*smacks myself on the forehead for putting it off yet again*).. oh, wait; here's why.. Around this time of year, I guess EVERY person who is silly enough to get suckered into lecturing a class of 200+ students wishes there was something that could magically help him mark all the finals answer scripts.. Well, if you know of any such toy, don't hold back, I implore you :o) My spare time for the next fortnight depends on it :)) :))

Stray thought: why do I put so many brackets on the stuff in my journal entries ? I have no idea.. disorganized mind, says my coworker ;o)
