|Today began far too damn early for me. I woke up at 5:00 AM and wasn't able to get back to sleep. For added fun this was one of those days where simply making the bed takes about 30 minutes and a number of words children aren't supposed to hear.
The early morning was spent reinstalling some folding doors. We took them down shortly after moving in, and now we need to get them out of the way. As a bonus, the racket we made got the noisy downstairs neighbor's kid in trouble. That's right: his mom heard the banging and yelled at him to behave; he quickly replied "but I didn't do it!". Ya know, if you automatically assume any banging around is done by your kid perhaps you should attempt to keep control of him.
I spent the evening working with Project Noise, and the code works! Now I need to compose a cleaner and better version of the code. I spent most of the evening working out how to do that.
A nasty winter storm has rolled in, so internet access has been rather spotty. However I managed to get to a few places of interest. For example I went looking for some quality pictures of Blaze. Naturally I ran across the nudie pinup someone did (and with Google's Safe Search on I might add). I also ran across an MSN group entitled Sonic Heroines and a Deviant art based Blaze fan club. The latter of which was the source for the new Blaze userpic.
Another site of interest is today's Link of the Day on UserFriendly. These people put some balloons on a camera and just let it drift. Have a look at the Balloon Project.
Lastly in my searches today I ran across a site that's alarmist satire: Non-Breaking Space -- the Doomsday Tag. That one's more for the bored HTML geeks than your average netizen, but it's amusing.
