|Today was spent trying out yet another idea for compression. This time it actually worked. Well, most of the time. Sometimes it would hiccup and then barf all over the output file. I'll not be using something that risky for anything.
I putzied around with a few other things. Notably the "archive" page on this blog shows a clean slate, with the 2007 posts neatly grouped on another page.
The immediate goal for January is the release of both Necros Cavern and Necros Cavern GUI.
Like I did yesterday, I woke up during the night and spent about 2 hours just trying not to puke. I'm hoping that's the last of it. It's been quite stuffy in this apartment today, and that can't be helping much.
The biggest milestone of the day was that I fixed myself a couple of fried eggs for lunch -- this was the first attempt at both frying eggs and frying anything without any help. I'm quite resistant to burning, and this attribute came in handy when a quarter-sized blop of hot egg and butter went splat onto my left hand. I didn't even get a 1st degree burn from that.
Here are some of last year's links. May the year of the Rat be just as interesting.
Pikku-Orava -- Heavy metal squirrel.
Remember this freak?
Food Fight -- a video about war using food to represent those involved.
Lastly, here's a video where a squirrel uses a breath mint to save the forest.
