I’m hungry

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 1:00 PM

After the holiday’s heaps of excellent food, it’s time to step back into the breach and DIET. I just had a small lunch, so small, in fact, that it hasn’t actually registered that I ate anything and I’m still hungry. Oy.

battery.el now online

After shaving yaks[1] for a while[2], I figured out how to best solve the problem[3] I had with battery.el. Fixed it, and put it online for your perusal pleasure[4].

[1] Update the kernel to 2.6.0-t6 -> sound isn’t working -> go back to -test4 -> sound works -> rebuild -test6 trident.ko -> sound works -> update xemacs from CVS -> hopelessly broken, go back to stable 21.4.14 -> figure out how to get packages to work -> packages work. Etc, etc, ad infinitum.
[2] but hey, it was fun.
[3] if the output of (shell-command) is one line, it is displayed in the echo area. WTF?
[4] FSVO, of course.

books make me happy

I gave in, and bought three books from Amazon. I know, I’m weak. But they’re such good stories…

Coredlia’s Honor, by Lois McMaster Bujold, an omnibus edition of the first two books in the barrayar series. I’m currently reading the fourth book, after having finished the third.

The Colonels, book four in W. E. B.’s Griffin’s Army series. I have the first three, and can’t wait to find out how the story develops.

The last book is one I’ve been thinking of getting for quite some time. Considering I have my first workout at the new IBM gym on Wednesday, it seems rather appropriate. The Official United States Navy SEAL Workout, Revised Edition.
