I consider the errant arrival of individuals to this blog by way of Google searches like “pygtk error” and “vimperator slow” to be roughly analogous to dolphins being ensnared in a trawler’s net, to be canned along with tuna for the consumption of hungry and dolphin-loving children. Ok, poor analogy. But it sounded funny in […]


My wisdom tooth has stopped giving me grief, and I am pretty happy with myself after successfully writing a tiny script to do something I’ve been meaning to do in a while. I attempted this in Python previously and couldn’t get it to work, which makes Ruby quite impressive to me given I only picked […]

Ok, admittedly, my comparisons are a bit dated but here goes: I didn’t like how Blogger was designed and laid out, and Livejournal seemed to […]


I’ve really liked used the fui program, which I mentioned in a previous entry. I would like to try improving it somehow, though I can’t think of what it needs. It’s written in Python, which isn’t too difficult to understand I suppose, but I am a bit lazy… or can’t be bothered, to read and […]
