log

  • Well, after my computer exploded and my hard drive became an orphan, I finally built a working computer again and fixed up my scripts so they didn’t suck. Now I shall attempt to post the giant piles of stuff that have accumulated.

diy,links


motivational,practical


food,photography

  • http://www.tastespotting.com/ – My friend Cassie sent me this link. In its own words: “Think of TasteSpotting as a highly visual potluck of recipes, references, experiences, stories, articles, products, and anything else that inspires exquisite taste.”

game,geometry

  • The eyeballing game – Another link from Cassie… it’s a Flash game that’s sort of interesting, related to one’s ability to eyeball something and tell if it’s straight
  • Nomic Game – A paperwork table game that looks a bit complex to actually play. The object of the game is to change the rules of the game.

article

  • The Score: How childbirth went industrial – An article in The New Yorker giving a (critical) opinion of why C-section is used so often. Interesting read.
  • Perils of pop philosophy
    • Probably related to Dunning-Kruger effect – “…people reach erroneous conclusions and make unfortunate choices but their incompetence robs them of the metacognitive ability to realize it”
  • The Zen of Drinking Alone from Modern Drunkard Magazine. I can’t say I’ve ever heard of Modern Drunkard before, but this is a surprisingly cogent article about the value of… drinking alcohol alone, or “using alcohol to find your inner monkey”.
  • Well, more of an essay than an article… On Liberty by John Stuart Mill is something I should probably read at some point

music

  • Jake Speed and the Freddies – just saw them at the Southgate House and was extremely impressed, despite that ordinarily I’d never listen to “folk blues” voluntarily.
  • StumbleAudio – I don’t really know what this is. but I wrote it down, so maybe it’s good. “Guide to discovering music and sharing great new music.”

  • Here is the umpteenth post made to my WordPress in an automated way…
  • I guess here is where I put “Hello, world” and for once it’s actually kind of accurate because the post is going where the world can see it.
  • So, uh, Hello, world
  • Did I fix my idiotic bugs yet?

links,blogs

  • http://www.tanashabitat.com/ (Tana’s Habitat – a site Jane recommended for useful information about living on your own. It looks far more suited to her gender than to mine, but it still has some good advice.)

books


comic

  • This Modern World by Tom Tomorrow – a webcomic and blog I first came across in Citybeat, but came across by accident later

  • So, uh, Hello, world
  • Well, damn, my program has a bug that makes it impossible to post more than one entry per day. It’s a very obvious bug, too.

  • Perl 6 has two main interpreters:
  • Stuff about Erlang I should remember:
    • shared-nothing, async message passing
    • single assignment
    • strict or eager evaluation (as compared to lazy evaluation like in Haskell)
