Subject:"NO SUP"
Time:09:34 pm
So, SUP bought Livejournal. Some of you might remember when Sixapart sold the Russian rights to LJ to them some time ago. At the time, many Russian bloggers ( adorned with charming "NO SUP" icons ) complained that SUP was in cahoots with the state infiltrated media via their link with the SOL+ media agency.

Livejournal has been of declining use for me lately, and I am thinking of pulling the whole thing to run my own blog on my own hosting, where I can implement my own features, etc. Might be the last nail in the coffin.

p.s. I wonder what SUP's position on Harry Potter fanfic is.

After lots of ghetto engineering, I am posting this from my truly enormous ( queen sized ) hammock slung underneath my loft bed! It's still not hung perfectly ( it's a little steep still ), but I am very happy with it.

I name it "H.A.M.O.K.", Hempen Appliance Made Only by Knitting.

Kneel before H.A.M.O.K.!

Gold-farming empire linked to dot-com child abuse scandal ( the empire in question is IGE ).

So, IGE was most likely funded by a pedophile on the lam.

At Villain the other week, I bought some very nice Japanese influenced stickers, and would like to pass on the recommendation - tokidoki ( "sometimes" ).

I am finally ticking off a number of computing goals. I am doing them all at once so as to cluster my frustrations in an efficient manner. Findings:

Going to Dvorak is a humbling experience. I've gotten away with being a pretty awful typist for many years because programming uses much more time thinking than typing.

Lisp is quite a lot of fun.

I take back the unkind things I said about emacs in 1999.

10 A friend of mine was once interviewing an engineer for a programming job and asked him a typical interview question: how do you know when a function or method is too big? Well, said the candidate, I don't like any method to be bigger than my head. You mean you can't keep all the details in your head? No, I mean I put my head up against my monitor, and the code shouldn't be bigger than my head.

Subject:Chumby
Time:10:28 am
I got my invite today as an "insider" to order a Chumby ( a small, developer open, always on internet device from ( among others ) Bunny Huang - http://www.chumby.com/ ). Ready to plonk down my US$179 hardearned, I find that they won't ship outside the United States.

Sigh. Maybe Harlan will be able to get me one and send it over.

To answer wzdd's question from yesterday, Guitar Hero 3 is a lot of fun! But I have no other Guitar Heroes to compare it with. I didn't play it for very long last night though as I was feeling unwell.

Subject:Guitar Hero Thrii
Time:12:29 pm
Anyone in Australia buying Guitar Hero 3 for Wii today ( release day ), should probably go to JB Hi-Fi - at the one near my office, it's $127.00, plenty of copies. Compare $149.95 at Electronics Boutique, and $149.00 at JB's online shop.

Sadly, no single guitars for sale yet.
