I think I’m doing the current part of my Ph.D backwards. Here I am trying to figure out how a complex systems analysis of service discovery protocols can be useful before I’ve finished creating my own model for service discovery. What I should be doing is concentrating on developing a service discovery protocol and then Read more about 2003-05-21 02:49:28[…]
Not a bad FA Cup final, but by no means a classic either. Pity Southampton didn’t win though. At least it was Pires who scored the winning goal (one of my favourite players) for Arsenal. I went and saw The Matrix Reloaded on Friday with Nigel, Max, Terry and Shane. It was good, but not Read more about 2003-05-18 09:13:00[…]
I upgraded my workstation to RedHat 9 today. It was quite painless. The worst bit was actually migrating my old postgresql database to the newer version. The latest version has a new internal format, which means I had to dump the data from the old database, remove the old database, initialise the new database and Read more about 2003-05-15 14:30:26[…]

Went to Caloundra for the weekend, mainly so we could be with Mum on Mother’s Day. I didn’t go swimming because I had (still have) the flu. We took Mum out to dinner on Saturday night. On Sunday we went on a long drive in the Blackall Ranges. So we drove through Maleny, Conondale, Kenilworth Read more about 2003-05-12 08:30:11[…]

Yes, this is the third entry in quick succession. Note to self: create a mechanism in my blogging system to differentiate public posts from private posts. The world needs to be protected from some of the stuff I want to keep in my blog ;). But this will require me to keep track of sessions Read more about 2003-05-06 12:43:51[…]
Now that the situation in Iraq has cooled down somewhat, I’ve been pretty slack when it comes to keeping up with the latest news. I did see John Howard receive a standing ovation at Yankee Stadium during a baseball match yesterday. I swear the bloke may as well be a Yank. It’ll be interesting to Read more about 2003-05-06 12:29:33[…]
