My mind is going, Dave . . .

I've now forgotten my headphones at home for the third day in a row. Usually they stay at work, but last week someone was using my office and I was working from home so I took them home. I keep remembering that I've forgotten them when I'm sitting in the car or when I've already gotten to the office.

Testing from Emacs

Just trying out the new toy which Mr. Johnston has provided.

Maybe now I might even write more often. Heh.

Testing new upj_post

I'm sure Pudge loves me now that I've created and deleted about 5-6 quick garbage entries trying to get this working.

At any rate, now I can just run upj_post -s Subject -e and it'll pop up an emacs window with a template post.

Update: Fooie on upj_post, long live journal_client.

09:27 AM + GraphViz = useless neat maps

ISAGN. OK, maybe not a great need, but it'd be interesting to map out friends and fans. If only there were a SOAP interface to grab things (not that I need an excuse to justify having bought Torgo's book).

Clicks-and-mortar gripe

CompUSA gets it, but B&N doesn't.

At the former, when looking at a product you can enter a zip code and it'll show you the nearest n stores and if they have it in stock or not. Really annoying, since the store closes in about 30 minutes and I'd really like to see if they have what I'm interested in in stock before bothering running over there (as for why not just order it, I'm on vacation and it wouldn't get here before I left).

Just checking out the SOAP interface

These aren't the droids you're looking for.

Ancient code still (mostly) works

I just got the four year old code from my TPJ article working with only one (cosmetic) bug and a few configuration tweaks. Woohoo.

This is my first journal entry.

There are many like it, but this one is mine.
