I looked at the comprehensive People page last night and saw a surprising number of Observers. I know Advogato is gaining popularity but I didn't expect that many uncerted people. I'm sure most of them have lots of good input to give but they can't post in article threads without a cert. So I browsed some of the Observer accounts trying to give certs but most of them have no project listings and no diaries.
Without anything to go on I can't give a cert. So new people, put up some descriptive content! I prefer to see project listings, but I think I can also tell a lot about someone from diary entries - I certified jefft just based on his diary cause it seemed clear (to me) he was a man with a clue. But I need something to go on before I can give a cert.
Other random crap:
One of the hard drives in the 486 is making a bad sound. I don't expect it to be much longer in this world. I can replace it with an old Conner I have, but the Conner doesn't like to pair with another drive on the same IDE channel. It works but it's slow. I think it creates a lot of contention for some reason. Drat.
If all the Layer 4 protocols in the world were replaced with some form of remote method calls would that be a win or a lose? I'm inclined to say win.
I have something tedious to do, which I promised someone at work I would do tonight since I didn't do it this afternoon. I'm trying to nurse a good buzz to the point where I don't mind doing it. Not quite there yet. In a world with hard cider, why does anyone drink beer?
