I was pondering to myself, why is it that governments on both sides tend to chip away at the same core set of freedoms?Read more...Collapse )

Another dream.

I dreamed there was some nice HTML/CSS, in a comic strip. About the same scale as a normal comic strip. I dreamed that if I scrolled the comic strip sideways for TEN MILES at that scale, there'd be a funny joke. I'd got to, like 1.3 miles when the alarm clock woke me. For once, I was grateful.

So, I was thinking about Counting Rhymes. Eenie, meenie...

And I realized that the ideal (for the singer) counting rhyme has one more beats than a number with many prime factors.Read more...Collapse )

Lego Racer Tips

Share

I found a text file I'd written many years ago, with tips and cheats for a game called Lego Racer. Not sure this is even still available. Thought I'd save it for posterity.

Dewi's Guide to America

There are all sorts of things that are the same as the UK... and lots of things that are completely different. Food is different, and even the familiar things have different names.

I can't speak of places like New England (a name for the states in the far northeast of the country, where things are much more British in feel, apparently), so I can only write of my experiences in Texas.Read more...Collapse )

Looking for work again!

Share
defaultShades
Anyone with Austin-area work, work-from-home work, contract work, etc, I've got about 15 years experience sysadminning most OSs, and programming most languages.

I'm pretty cheap, too: while at the moment I'm looking for jobs over $40k/year (£26k), I'll likely grab the first solid offer over $25k/year (£17k).

Please let me know if you hear of any interesting and relevant openings.

As a child, I remember sitting, watching the 18-30 Clubbers sing and dance the Hokey Cokey in the water. Sometimes my sister and I would watch them: sometimes, in a more meta mood, we'd try to analyse the song...Collapse )

Standing desks

Trying the "standing desk" thing. 30 minutes and already the temptation to just grab my laptop and curl up on the floor is almost overwhelming. Not sure this is for me.

OK, that lasted about an hour. Maybe I'll do another hour tomorrow.

Firefox Ducklings

So I had a dream last night. Seems like it's been a while since I've had one amusing enough to bother remembering.

I was walking through a flattish expanse of estuarine flats. boring analysis hidden behind the cuts...Collapse )In one of the streams running across the flats, there was a pile of ducklings, interspersed with larger ducks....Collapse ) These, I remembered, were what Firefox used as storage for web cookies....Collapse )

I was worried that some of the ducklings were fully grown...Collapse ): was this meant to happen, or were they meant to have been disposed of before getting that old? I was also concerned about having to look after all of the ducklings for DEP, and my ability to do so. ...Collapse )
