  • work (conftools): Finally did the release of apacheconf to testers-list. Got moved to bindconf. Blah. I was hoping to clean up AisleRiot with Zana this weekend, but it looks like I’ll have to punt that yet again. )-:

  • food: Went to the very cool Indian restaurant with Zana and Owen where Owen and I nerded most of the time. Owen and I both got manly dishes spice at 8 in a scale from 1 to 10. They burnt all the hairs off of my tongue! Anyway, Owen helped me with my homework, so I can hopefully get a bunch of bindconf working this weekend.

  • clothes: It was too warm today to wear the sweater. In theory it will be 30 degrees (F) on Monday, so maybe I can wear it then.

  • suckiness (others): This seems to be making the rounds, but it’s pretty funny nonetheless. Someone’s having a worse week then me:

  • work: sucked. Spent too long there. Got home to find the doggy had made a mess in the back room. Spent a while cleaning up — I’ll have to be up late waiting for his cage to dry. Maybe I can do some hacking on the ripping software in the interim.

  • clothes: Zana knitted me a sweater. It’s very cool. I will wear it tomorrow, assuming the weather doesn’t get in the way.

  • hacking (apacheconf): At work a long time. Didn’t make the release today so hopefully we can do so tomorrow. I played Bryce at ping-pong this afternoon, and did a lot better in the second game — holding on to lose 18-21.

  • music: My headphones seemed slip into mono at some point today. I need to see if I can get them fixed.

Wed 07 Feb 2001

  • hacking: Spent half the day getting Crutcher’s printconf program automake’d and in CVS, and half the time trying to get a release of apacheconf. Phil claimed to have it generating httpd.conf files, but I’ll have to try it myself tomorrow. I think we’ll try and make a public release tomorrow.

  • entertainment: Movie of the night was 13th Warrior. Mr Cranky pegged it when he described it as “a cross between ‘Dances with Wolves,’ ‘Braveheart’ and two hours of television static.” I think there was a Miller Light commercial mixed in there somewhere.

  • dog: Time to walk the doggy.

Tue 06 Feb 2001

  • hacking (apacheconf): Hosed at work. Had a productive day today, but only now realize how much is left to be done — as is often the case.

  • hacking (music): itp sent me a copy of his Mister Ruperts Ripping and Encoding tools. Groovy name, but it’s written in perl. Still, I hope to use it to oggify my CD collection.

  • meta: Federico pointed out that I have been forgetting to update this, so I will start doing so again.

  • camera: Southern California was fun. Zana and I got a digital camera for christmas — a Olympus D-490Z. After spending a long and frustrating time trying to get it to work with GPhoto, I finally RTFM. The stupid thing doesn’t communicate unless the front cover is open. So I took some pictures of my doggy:

  • weekend (tv): XFL is on. It’s going to suck. I’m going to watch it anyway. Blargh.

Mon 04 Feb 2001

  • entertainment: XFL sucked. A lot. So much so, that Zana sent me out to rent a movie. I rented Highlander, and watched it. Woo — that’s one more movie that I’ve been meaning to see watched.

  • consumerism: Went furniture shopping with zana this morning. We looked at a bench to put by our front door, so people can take off their shoes easily. Went to Ecko, and picked out some fabric samples. Also grabbed a CD-RW at stayonline. Now that I have the camera working, I’m going to want to store the pictures on something.

  • College Sports (hoops): Watched UNC beat Georgia Tech. Not a bad game — almost worth fighting through traffic for. Also saw UCLA beat Stanford. Should make my brother happy. I watched a lot of TV today.

  • work (apacheconf): Gave some more thought to handling Environment variables. I think we can get another public release out to the testers list on Monday.

Mon 19 Dec 2000

  • work: Spent half the day reading mail. The other half getting caught up in Alchemist work, and the last half trying to finish a UI. Busy day.

  • food: Had dinner with Owen and Zana. First went to Carolina Coffee House. Shut. Then went to a sportsbar. Also shut. Finally, had to settle for Pepper’s Pizza. Not too bad, but not too great. Better then my frozen empanada at lunch though. Apparently downtown Chapel Hill closes for christmas.
