I just ate 13 white castle hamburgers. I wonder what the record is? Currently nothing is listed.
I stumbled on upon mame while shutting down for the evening today and have merged 2 of my fantasies.
When I have a non-NYC place to live, I want to create a decent fileserver/NAS for my home computers. I now also want to build my own arcade box. And why not have either the arcade machine be the fileserver or have the arcade machine look to the NAS for its ROMS?
As powerful as really cheap machines are these days, there’s no reason not to have one box fulfill both functions.
A man was trying to hand me advertisements for vinyl covers for automobiles. Has he not chosen to hand these fliers to the worst possible audience?
I’ve been working on automating all the installations for my team. I went in with high hopes, thinking that I could quickly finish the project and move on to more fun and exciting things.
How wrong I was. The difficulties are numerous:
- I do not have any of the domain knowledge for the project – Other people know how these things work and what they do, but not I. So I have no idea what is crucial and what isn’t.
- I did not have any idea how MSI packages work – while not crippling, it has delayed me, causing me to take a long long time to figure out how to do a simple thing.
- I have to rely on other people to test my work – finding out if I solved a problem or not is always dependant on someone else’s schedule.
I’ve learned from this to make sure that I identify and collaborate with those who have domain knowledge early in the project. Request specific expectations of the project and the timeline. Prepare myself better for deployment by requesting a way to test my own success.
On the upside, I’ve written my first app that will actually get used by anyone here. It sets up files to get deployed and logs it.
I’m so excited!
Squiggles emailed me Nick Cave’s “The mercy Seat”.
Talk about intense! If you haven’t heard him before, I highly recommend you steal yourself a sample from somwhere.
Sushi really is just raw fish and rice wrapped in seaweed. The only trick to it is in cooking the rice properly. After that, it is easy.
Why does blogger not produce w3c valid xhtml? The ad code that they insert has problems, so my site isn’t w3c valid…
I know it means nothing, but I love that this blog came up #1 for steganographic rhyme
About everyone they eat
From the smartness of their hats
To the deliciousness of their feet
It’s why dear Mommy made you
Wear fresh undies
before wandering in the Woods
Monsters may espy them
Before gobbling up your goods!
