There are many reasons to keep a blog, and most of them are in conflict with each other. Today the conflict is between writing something so I will remember next year what I was doing this year, and writing nothing so that everyone else doesn't have to wade through my rambling. Guess who won?
- Listening to music on the tube doesn't make the tube journey pass any faster in the way that reading a book does (when I can find a book interesting enough to read but not yet so interesting that I don't just finish it when I get home). But the headphones do keep the screeching noise down.
- I'm missing not having a spare computer on the internet. I don't know why, as I barely used the one I did have. £150 buys me a year's worth of 64Mb UML, or £200 (plus delivery) buys me a Celeron from the Dell "factory outlet" with really rather a lot more memory and disk than that, which my employers will host for me => free bandwidth. But then I'm still stuck with real hardware.
- To confirm what everyone already knew really, I am Officially Not Hacking SBCL (or much else) right now - really don't have the time or the enthusiasm. If you were waiting for me to finish or merge something that's interesting to you, ask on the appropriate mailing list and I'll work out what state I left it in and post any WIP I have lying around that's not publically available already.
- The full extent of my Lisping lately is - would you believe it - tools for dealing with HTML forms and databases and stuff without (a) going mad, or (b) involving much more of a framework than Araneida already imposes.
I think I probably won't be at LSM after all.
