(Which is a terrible book, by the way.) I read Schneier on Security, which is an interesting blog about security and squids. (Wait, is the plural of “squid” just “squid”?) See, every Friday he post something squid-related, and last week it was an 8-foot squid pillow. Well, obviously I had to make one for myself.Continue reading “Zen and the Art of Sewing Machine Matinence”
Keeping with this website’s themes of mollusks and dating… Live, nude mollusks! An entertaining, educational, very strange video about how slugs have sex. Not for the faint of heart. There’s more mucus involved than you can even imagine:
I am the first result for “snail in a turtleneck”! (Okay, not terribly surprising.) What was really entertaining was the ads it generated, though: Target: for the finest in snail turtlenecks.
I was eating lunch today and reading my RSS feeds. Every half-dozen spoonfuls or so, I’d look at my bowl to plan my next phase of attack, but mostly I was just reading the blogs. Near the end of my soup, I looked down and saw a big clear chunk on my spoon. Now, I’veContinue reading “Soup and Circus”
I was looking at real estate listings today and there was one place that had “1.1” baths. I’ve heard of 1.5 baths, but what’s .1 of a bath? A bidet?
I saw a video today about how Microsoft imagines 2019 to be. It gave me the idea of how to do a better RSS reader, which is something I’ve been thinking about for a while. It’ll have a main page with snippets of stuff in sections like a newspaper, and you can click on aContinue reading “RSS Idea”
On the main page. I’ve got adding a comic RSS feed to the todo list…
I’ve been fighting with phpdoc for about a week now, trying to figure out how to document my extension, which is a combination of PHP and C code. I finally figured it out, and since I haven’t seen this documented anywhere, I figured I’d reproduce the steps here: Download phpdoc from CVS. No! Not PEAR,Continue reading “phpdoc hell”
This is pretty geeky, so sorry non-technical reader. There’s a glossary at the bottom if you’d like to follow along. I’ve been developing a PHP database driver for work, and this week I proposed it as a new PECL (pronounced “pickle”) package. Unfortunately, they use CVS for their packages. I’m used to Git. So, IContinue reading “Pain in my CVS”
Someone at work showed me http://www.wordle.net/create, which is cool. Using this blog’s URL (one whole post!) gives: which I suppose it mostly accurate. I think this blog will be less about CURRENT in the future (even though that sounds… strange), and more about cartooning, Linux, reading, and stuff like that. If I remember, I’m goingContinue reading “Nifty Flash Thing”
