I've been having a lot of problems with carpal tunnel, which is why my diary entries have basically ceased. Frustrating, but that's life.
Access to cable television has led me to decide that I want to do some screen-scraping of various sites like the scifi schedulebot to check for various things. I've also been playing with LWP in all of its various forms a lot more. I've also been steadfastly avoiding working on my honors thesis, which is no doubt a bad thing.
Lots of cool stuff. Looking at some abstraction mechanisms with regard to distributed object systems, and porting software over to QNX. Hopefully porting software to a supposedly POSIX compliant OS won't be that hard -- but I'm not holding out any hope. Nonetheless, it's cool stuff, and I get to work with the same great people.
Hmmm. Lots of interesting things, but I'm not entirely sure what I've talked about already. A couple of friends of mine hooked up romantically, which has taken a bit of getting used to. Ummm, what else. Imported men can sometimes be duds. DJ Shadow does an awesome concert though, which I was happy to see. I've gained a bunch of weight through bad eating habits that needs to come off somehow. It might also be a product of the fact that I've now got access to the ability to assuage my hunger for baseball on a nightly basis. It's a bad thing to be able to do. I discovered that I'm never going to be able to buy a really nice AV system -- I'll never leave the house. Sorta lonely, in the sense that I've got lots of good friends, but not really anyone that I can confide in anymore because they're all either engaged in a relationship and in their own world or offlimits because I don't trust my own behavior. Fun and games. Maybe a weekend with family will help reset eating patterns and rebuild a couple shreds of self-confidence.
