On Friday at work, I wrote a short post extolling the virtues of VMWare. It was freakin awesome. I had to debug a problem a user was having on a 3-year-old version of an obscure Linux distro, so Eliot (my boss) suggested using VMWare. It was so cool. I found a site that actually stillContinue reading “VM of Death and Doom from Hell”

I finally put up another comic. I’ve been delayed for two reasons: first, I’ve been really busy with work. I’ve done some major work on the PHP driver, so it should now be easily installable on Linux and Mac (it’s also faster). Second, I’ve been wanted to add a “one shot gag” section, which requiresContinue reading “Another comic”
Zen and the Art of Sewing Machine Matinence
(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.
Soup and Circus
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”
And an irrational number of closets
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”
New comic up!
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”
