Bored

On any normal Sunday, about this time, I’d be either thinking about (1) heading to bed, or (2) popping in another movie to watch. But I’m doing a favor for a friend, and I’m at work instead. And boy is it boring. I’ve read through two separate Fark flamewars, I’ve read the lyrics for Alice’s Restaurant, and I finished off that “Alice in Math Land” thesis too.

By the way, it’s pretty interesting reading, since it’s a fairly intense math thesis, written with an apparent target audience of children. I think more kids should learn combinatory mathematics before they’re out of grammar school.

I’m thinking, right now, that I’ve encountered all there is to find on the internet. I may have to go to Barnes & Noble today and buy something big and heavy to read at work. Suggestions are accepted; either hit the “comments” button below this post, or send me an email (if you know my address). Just try not to suggest something like Finnegan’s Wake, by James Joyce. I’m about 3 chapters into it, and I’m not sure I’ve understood more than 2 or 3 sentences.

Migration?

Seeing as I’ve posted more in the last week than I did during any 7-day period while the “original” devlogic.org was up (including the first week), I think this site will become the “real” devlogic.org, and the “Original” devlogic.org will go the way of New Coke: popular in Europe for a while, and eventually phased out of existence.

Gigantic

just finished watching Gigantic: A Tale of Two Johns. If’s pretty good (with the striking exception of every single Syd Straw interview segment); I thoroughly recommend that you check it out; see the schedule for your local art theater for possible showtimes. If you’re in Austin, it’s playing at the Dobie Theater until the 7th.

And it’ll be out on DVD some time this fall. I’m definitely gonna pre-order it as soon as I can. And fast-forward through all the Syd Straw interviews.

Mathematical Fiction

I’m going to have to devote some time to reading this. It looks interesting, and I’ve read the first chapter (and a bit of the second one). I found it nearly by accident; I was looking for logic puzzles, and Lewis Carroll wrote quite a few(including a bunch of syllogisms).

I guess google is both useful AND fun.

Bored.

jeez, I’m bored. it seems like I only put entries on here while I’m at work, too. I wonder why that is.

Anyway, on the board for tomorrow (once I get home and sleep):

  • try out that Wacom/Xinerama fix
  • go see Gigantic (A Tale of Two Johns)
  • uh… I can’t think of anything else.
  • oh, yeah:

  • burn off more CDs. my /opt partition (where /opt/news_download/burn lives) is WAY too full.

Tonight, I think I’ll watch a few episodes of Alias (assuming it stays slow *touch wood*). I’m about halfway through season 1, and season 3 starts in September.
