The Finite Automata Song

Drove down to North Bend from Portland today. Normally 3.5-4.5 hours, but this time took 6. Had some traffic, had some fog. Biggest problem---stuck for an hour while the whole southbound side of I-5 was blocked by an accident. Finally managed to drive around it.

My brother and his friend have this semi-pro recording studio. I'm going to try to record one or more of the songs I've written tomorrow. I think we're starting with the Finite Automata Song...


My New Year's Resolutions

Sigh. Day two of my blogging adventure, and I'm already falling behind. Exciting times today, but meant that I didn't get to work until now.

META: In which I begin to blog daily

For some time now, I've meant to start blogging daily...


Everything happens at once...

Boy, things have been busy the last couple of months, weeks, days... Thus, I have not been updating FOB so regularly, and probably won't be for a while. But I thought I ought to drop a brief note mentioning some of what's happening, at least...


How's Drupal's Unicode?

Turns out the Debian Women care about Drupal's Unicode support. So I thought I'd post Clytie's affiliation as a simplistic first test: "Clytie, vi-VN, Vietnamese free-software translation team / nhóm Việt hóa phần mềm tự do,"

Looks to work great so far.

My desktop

Greg Kroah-Hartman recently posted a picture of his desktop. Which was confusing, because I thought it was

my desktop. Go figure.


Here's a nice account of the life of the stagecoach robber Black Bart. From my point of view, he's notable because the domain name of this site, which is based on the handle I commonly use online, was chosen to match his signature on the little poems he used to leave at robbery scenes: "Black Bart the PO8".


CODE: An EMACS/MH hack you'll never care about

I'm the only person I know in the whole world who still uses command-line MH with emacs to compose MH messages. (Several come close, but none exactly that.) This is the sad story of my latest fight with this ancient albatross...

The Perry Bible Fellowship

Ran across this webcomic when it was nominated for an award this year. I'm not sure what to make of it. Amazing art, and really nice 4-panel storytelling, but very sick-n-twisted a lot of the time, and always kind of dark. Still, some of his strips are pretty nice.

Actually, reading the bio just now, I find out that the Portland Mercury actually publishes it. So you may already be reading it. Oh well.


They said Yes

I sent e-mail to The Yes Men yesterday asking them to put up the .ppt of their excellent talk slides on their site so that folks could play with them.

Today Andy said "yes"! What fun to get a personal e-mail from him. And the slides really are cool: I want to use them as a teaching aid on how to put together presentations way more credible than their content. Smile
