my head hurts

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 11:26 AM

I’m sick and miserable. You may leave appropriately sympathizing comments, if you insist.

On the plus side, I lost almost three kilograms since Saturday evening, and am getting used to the constant hunger. Yay for diets (not!), yay for getting fit (this one for real).

Also on the plus side, I’m reading King’s reissued edition of The Gunslinger, in preperation for volumes 5, 6 and 7 of The Dark Tower. Much better than the first edition.

Research of the Financial Kind

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 8:09 PM

I just spent a few hours researching which Pension Fund (“Kupat Gemel”) I should invest in this year. I settled on number 548 (no link due to Ministry of Finance website b0rkedness), which had the highest gross return on investment of the funds managed by banks last year. A trip to the bank is in order on Sunday.

Finished Quicksilver

As I wrote on the books page, “It’s a 900 page tome about a 300 page story. Interesting in an encyclophedic sort of way, but the least good (I can’t bring myself to say bad about a Stephenson book) of Stephenson’s books”.

I’m on page 30

Around page 20 I took a break and washed the dishes; around page 40 I’ll take another break and put stuff where it belongs. No rest for the wicked.

observation

Judging by the journal entry I just posted and the mail I fired off to hackers-il, I woke up pissed off at the world this morning. I suspect I’m actually pissed off at my self and taking it out on the world. *sigh*

working from home again today

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 9:39 AM

Since all I need to do is read a 100 pages long low level design document for tomorrow’s review. God, I hate code written in English. “This function will do bla bla bla” – just write the damned code already! C is clear and precise, unlike English!

I think I’ll go watch another chapter from the 24 second season DVD first, as a motivator(for what exactly? donno, but it worked yesterday!)

UML talk aftermath

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 3:26 PM

Well, that wasn’t too bad, I was mostly coherent. I would proclaim ‘no more talks!’, but I’m dedicated to keeping this study group alive, and if giving talks is what it’s going to take, so be it.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 12:14 PM

I’m giving a talk on User Mode Linux to the Linux study group at work. Slides are now up, although they’re probably not very useful, since it’s mostly code snippets for me to talk about. Feh, I hate writing slides when my heart isn’t in it.
