  • Man, that sucks

    I’ve dropped from a google pagerank of 7 to 5. I need to be more interesting, it seems. So, things… Unit testing with Perl is fun. You should all take a look at petdance‘s WWW::Mechanize and Test::WWW::Mechanize. If one were to want to make a bot to grab all of one’s financial data from one’s…

  • EricLippert01.wmv (video/x-ms-wvx Object)

    EricLippert01.wmv (video/x-ms-wvx Object) So… a while ago, I took arjen_lentz to Microsoft to meet with eric_lippert and talk about MySQL and Microsoft together-workingness. Eric talked about his work on LiNQ (if that’s how it’s spelled) and I took pictures. I didn’t really follow, but I bet the data folks in the audience will find this…

  • Mono stuff

    1) A.J. is writing unit tests against Microsoft.Xna. We’ll use these unit tests as a sort of specification for Mono.Xna. Same as the perl6 smoke tests. 2) Speaking of perl6, I saw Audrey Tang at work the other day. She’s traveling around working on the bits. She’s planning to visit Boston and Ximian on May…

  • Morewellian

    A friend of mine and I were talking about working at the evil empire and the politics, culture and happenings that occur there. She said that she felt that has an Orwellian feeling to it. She quickly retorted, saying that it was more than Orwellian. It was Morewellian! I thought this was quite humorous, and…

  • RIP, lilo

    I just discovered that my friend and mentor, lilo passed away on Saturday, the 16th of September. He was struck by a car while riding his bike. I haven’t quite come to terms with the loss. He meant a lot to many people. I wouldn’t be where I am if it were not for him.…

  • Goodbye, Peter Z!

    Today, we had a going-away lunch for one of the local MySQL guys, Peter Z. I had a picture taken. From right to left: Peter, Karen, Kelly, Joe, Larry and yours truly.
