For the first time in weeks I got to watch my favourite TV show, West Wing, on Thursday. Man was it good, one of the best episodes ever. For more viewing pleasure, now that the 4th freely available Animatrix short is downloadable I downloaded them all in work (gotta love GigE to the office) and watched them too. It’s a mixed batch but I liked them on the whole.
This week has been a good one for me programming wise, I’ve managed to get my head around AF indepedent programming. Actually I impressed myself by getting far enough to point out omisions in that document, if you look at the latest revision it’s from 16/05/2003, that’s because I mailed Itojun suggesting what is now rule of thumb number 3. The Document didnt even mention ai_addrlen two days ago. Itojun’s a cool guy, and kame are good people.
I tried out Simon Tatham’s DoIt which looks very useful, but the windows part of it crashes on me and just seems fundamentally broken somehow. I’ve mailed a bugreport, we’ll see how it goes.
It’s nearly a week since the Dell was installed, people are logging in, and everything is going well, but I still hate the name deathray, it sucks, and it’s pretty agressive to have to word “death” as the first thing you see in your prompt. I definitely preferred carbon.

It’s midweek madness time again, yesterday was an unbelievably busy day in work, and as if that wasnt enough I decided to punish myself by migrating RedBrick’s /home to the new Dell, oh and there was a SAGE-IE meeting.
Actually the meeting was good, we got learn about some very mad laws that exist right now, courtesty of Adrian Colley, and some scarier proposed laws that are on their way. Nick Hilliard also expanded on his proposal to start a free Irish Certificate Authority.
FirstMonday eventually came out, on Saturday, but there were some intresting papers, my favourite was The Radius Project. I might even get around to reading the latest version of NewScientist today. That’s progress.
