I've started reading SICP. Fascinating book. But can't build mit-scheme on my machine because I simply don't have enough memory. The ubuntu repositories are no help either because I use 7.04, which they just stopped supporting. I can find compiled binaries elsewhere, but I guess I might as well use this excuse to install 8.04LTS.

Moved my blog from LiveJournal to WordPress. WordPress looks so much cooler, and its open source to boot. The only catch was that LiveJournal only allows one month to be exported at a time. But this wasn't a problem for me since I only started there this month.

Just solved this problem at SPOJ. Pretty easy, but didn't risk getting a time limit exceeded verdict with Python and coded in C++ instead. The problem could be made slightly more interesting by increasing the number of jobs and the range of priorities (e.g. 10^5 perhaps).
