Saturday 5 February 2005

Saturday - yup. Wedding.

Friday 4 February 2005

Friday - it's noisy, the neighbors look to be gearing up for a wedding or something. I'll be avoiding my own home - and the noise for a while it looks like...

Thursday - an interactive JAVA slide rule - pretty cool.. Heh. Now, if it was a circular slide rule for a Nuclear Bomb Effects Computer...

Wednesday 2 February 2005

Wednesday - pretty busy still. Trying to come up with some decent testcases for a program - there are a lot of things to consider. It's hard to validate software, testcases are one approach, but in the end they can only prove that your code works or doesn't work for a specific instance.

Tuesday - still busy. Four computers buzzing away contentedly right now...

Good to see that the elections went off well in Iraq, hopefully the follow-through will be equally successful.

Apparently there was an exciting spacewalk for the space station astronauts, with thrusters firing while they were outside. Not only could the thrust blast be dangerous to astronauts, but the thruster chemicals could be very toxic if brought into the station by deposits on a space suit. But it's all a learning process. The Russians are apparently a lot less worried about that sort of stuff than the Americans.

Monday - working. Not a lot to say.

Sunday 30 January 2005

Sunday - a nice day, but my sinuses still hurt. A friend gave me some cream that you rub on your nostrils - VapoRub or something like that, and it actually works! Wow.

A SciFi movie I won't be going to see, thanks to the hysterically funny reviews of Alone in the Dark at A sample review from that page:  "Too stupid to watch, too loud to nap through, Alone in the Dark shows just how tenuous Plan Nine From Outer Space's hold on that 'worst movie ever' title really is." I'm not sure who Tara Reid is, or what she has ever acted in, but I gather her primary claim to fame is a Janet Jackson type wardrobe malfunction at some point.

Speaking of which, here is a amusing (perfectly G-rated) commercial that you won't see this Superbowl.
