Older blog entries for cael (starting at number 67)


i'm now unemployed. eazel has layed off a bunch of people and all the interns are included. so if anyone knows someone who needs an intern for 2.5 months let me know.

it's sad.

i think i will go to a movie tonight and/or get very very drunk.

new cds: live from a shark cage by papa m. the whole e.p. by pedro the lion, 30° everywhere by the promise ring, songs to fan the flames of discontent by refused, and broken by whispers by trembling blue stars.


we branched today, so now if i finish up the last bug that i stole from ramiro i get to work on non 1.0 stuff.

went to the cafe du nord on saturday with dan to see a local band he really likes called persephone's bees.

went to ghiradelli square with mike and ian to have sundaes and walked around fishermans wharf for awhile. in the process ran into some antioch kids i knew and was invited to a party at their place on saturday.

i miss the food in boston and i don't even really care about food.

john, ian, and eskil moved in. now we have stuff like couches and chairs. it's nice to have people around again.

new cd's: no division by hot water music, if you're feeling sinister (vinyl) by belle and sebastian, and mars audiac quintet by stereolab

what frequency are you getting? is it noise or sweet sweet music? on what frequency will liberation be? on what frequency will liberation be?

on the road to 1.0. bugs bugs bugs, more bugs, then for a change of pace, bugs.

went to the bottom of the hill last night with ian, mike, and dan to see a couple local bands and 764-HERO! lots of fun and actually got into one of the local bands called the stratford 4. was going to go see pedro the lion tonight but don asked us to stay at work instead. sigh.

moved in to the new apartment. at least, i did. eskil, ian, and john are moving in on saturday.

new cds: will you find me by ida, blue train (vinyl) by john coltrane, and the revolt against tired noises by the stratford 4

god forgive us for the hatred, for the risks that we take, boys forget promises, on both coasts, but what would it take, to get out now.

life. need i say more?

been working on nautilus a bunch and hyping cracked out vaporware fantasy projects. need to learn not to talk about things before they are done, or at least started in any meaningful way.

not homeless anymore ;-) me, eskil, yakk, mfleming, and jsh found a place in sf that rocks. now we just need to get everything setup so we can move in.

somehow i have become co-maintainer of gnome-utils with vicious, not quite sure how that happened. speaking of which, gnome-utils 1.3.1 is out so go forth and gw'th, tell em havoc sent you. ;-)

new cd's: m is ... by aerial m, october by aerial m, this is just a modern rock song by belle and sebastian, mirror repair by gastr del sol, relationship of command by at the drive-in, empires by vnv nation, who stole the i walkman? by isotope 217, nothing feels good by the promise ring, american don by don caballero, the first of the microbe hunters by stereolab, it's hard to find a friend by pedro the lion, and in place of real insight by karate.

they pervert the words of godly men, for their own selfish gain, i took their wrong and i took their lies, and i made them right, i made them right .

once again up late at work. we really need to start going to bed earlier. why does it feel like i said this at helix code? either way i am happier then i was then. maybe i am sleeping better hours or something.

movie night: saw the gnome-mobile with mjs and stephane, very very funny ;-) an old american man pretending to be scotish but only when he sings, the kids from mary poppins, a rolls-royce, and a bunch of short female gnomes in skimpy clothing attacking some gnome guy. what more can you ask for?

refactored the cache code in librsvg but not before causing a rather interesting visual bug. think people could get used to that? ;-)

finally got some head phones that don't suck, sounds so much better now.

new cds: sun ship by john coltrane and speak no evil by wayne shorter.

i want something, i want everything, i want nothing, nothing else, i want someone, not just anyone, be my hero .

at eazel, where i have been since mjs, yakk, and i were awakened by a phone call from don saying we need to be at work. that was 12 hours ago. we had gotten 5 hours of sleep. fun.

went out to a goth club called shrine of lilith in sf last night with mjs, yakk, and stephane. no man ray but it's a start. and maciej says that sf has a really good goth scene so i am excited about that.

been working on the preferences code in nautilus. managed to get the dialog geometery problems fixed so that it is always the right size and what not.

new cd: the world that summer by death in june

i'm the same as i was when i was 6 years old, and oh my god i feel so damn old, i don't really feel anything.

so it would appear that i am now 20. wonder how that happened ;-) anyway went to pepper's place for an australian day/going away party as he and his wife are moving to atlanta. got a bit drunk and had some strange alchohol. much fun for all.

started to work on nautilus for real. suprisingly sensible codebase for a project this big, i think i am really going to like working with it, especially nice cause at the moment i don't have any assigned tasks so i can just fix whatever looks like fun.

i am homeless still. staying at yakk and eli's place for the moment but i am being kicked out on sunday. finding temporary housing in the bay area seems to be near impossible.

capitalism is indeed organized crime and we're all victims.

i'm in seattle waiting till noon tomorrow to leave for san fransisco for 4 more months of work, this time at eazel.

saw my grandfather one last time before i leave. i am really glad that i got to see him so much this time. i am always worried that is won't see him again, cause i am home so rarely.

new cd's: a love supreme by john coltrane, engine takes to the water by june of 44, winners never quit by pedro the lion, and the shape of punk to come by refused.

however long i stay, i will always love you.

Iain: without sounding condescending, i totally understand what you mean.

it's like, you want to want to be with someone, it doesn't matter if you're ever with them, it's just having someone that you're trying to be with makes life worthwhile in a way.

of course, then again, maybe that's just me. oh, and it *does* matter if you're ever with them, it just doesn't matter to the feeling of pursuing someone you care about.

either way, it made me think.

and you think you've figured out everything, i think i know my geometry pretty damn well.

i've been home from belgium for two weeks now, just hanging out and playing guitar and stuff, watching very bad movies.

still no co-op.

saw save the last dance, pretty good. not great, but enjoyable.

new years eve was very cool. i was in the middle of the grand place in brussels surrounded by thousands of crazy people all setting off fireworks and running around and stuff.

new cd's: chiastic slide by autechre, anima animus by the creatures, elephant shoe by arab strap, the remix ep by isotope 217, 1000 hurts on vinyl by shellac, sketches of spain by miles davis, sedatif en frequences et sillons by fly pan am, and the unstable molecule by isotope 217.
