Girls. Women. Females. I swear that, for as long as I live, I will probably never completely understand them, but that’s probably the way it’s meant to be. I’m not going to say too much because, well, I don’t really want to. Let’s just say that I’m unsure what has changed about me in the Read more about 2003-05-30 18:24:45[…]
For the latter part of this week I’ve been taking a crash course in Perl programming so that I can modify the scripts Nathan wrote to automate the marking process for coms3200 so that they work for comp4301. I’ve finished the modifications in the script I think (I hope). The thing is I need to Read more about 2003-05-30 08:50:10[…]
This article has attracted more comments from readers in the short time that it’s been up than any other Slashdot article I’ve seen recently. The initial post asks the Slashdot community for some good cyberpunk and sci-fi novels. The Slashdot community obliged with a torrent of suggestions. Worth checking out if you’re into William Gibson Read more about 2003-05-29 21:21:22[…]
My alarm goes off at 4am in the morning. WTF?!!! Then I remembered: The Champions League final. I was dead tired, having gone to bed around midnight. So it was time to do a bit of reasoning. Sleepy reasoning, but reasoning nonetheless. Who was playing? Two Italian teams. AC Milan and Juventus. That probably means Read more about 2003-05-29 00:44:19[…]
I reiterate my belief that umbrellas are complete useless inventions. I suppose they come in handy when trying to ward off aggressive magpies or the next door neighbour, but when it comes to keeping one dry, they’re as adept at keeping out the rain as a toothpick is. Yet everybody uses them, even though they Read more about 2003-05-27 23:54:31[…]
The G-G has finally resigned. Probably a good decision in the long run. The issue had rather consumed the nation for the past little while, and the Governor General shouldn’t be attracting so much attention, especially attention of the negative kind. I’ve started implementing a scale-free version of a DHT. I should probably do some Read more about 2003-05-27 14:07:40[…]
As I look out my office window, I see a plume of dark gray smoke billowing from behind a church in the Tarragindi area. It’s been burning for quite some time now. I hope it’s nothing serious.
One thing I’ve been overlooking so far with respect to DHTs and so forth is that it may be difficult to solve the problem of heterogeneity. When a peer joins the network, its finger table is initialised to contain the addresses of m other nodes, where m is the number of bits in the identifier Read more about 2003-05-26 06:56:22[…]
About the nerd thing. I just remembered that the title of my blog is Segmentation Fault (Core Dumped)! But I’m still not a nerd, really I’m not. OK, maybe I’m sort of a nerd, but definitely less than half way to being a full nerd. I think I’d better stop analysing myself. Right.
Yay, I’m officially not a nerd! A couple of years ago I’d have been devastated at this news. But I’m actually very comfortable with this at the moment. :) (Says he who has created his own automated blogging system. Hmm…) I’m trying to get myself motivated about work again. I’m feeling less gloomy right now Read more about 2003-05-23 06:10:18[…]
