Orna thinks this comment is sig worthy, but I don’t know. lj worthy, definitely.

– how do you know a Lisp book is any good? – it has bits of assembler in it.

It has both M68K and a Lisp Machine assembler code, in chapter 10, Low Level Efficiency issues. Highly recommended.

I need your recommendation, gentle readers, for an excellent, even sublime, alcoholic beverage. Money is of no account. Suggestions?

Yesterday, ladypine and me attended a baby shower, which was a lot more fun than I expected. During the course of the conversation, Orna mentioned that my good friend Oleg Goldshmidt has a link to a pagan site from his homepage. Knowing Oleg as I do, I expressed disbelief at this, we agreed to check when we’ll get home, and continued talking about other matters.

Later, when we got home, Orna went to check. Before she fired up mozilla, however, we made a bet. The loser will buy the winner a bottle of the alcoholic beverage of their choice. Needless to say, I won, and now I need your help to decide!

My current runner up is Chivas Regal, but I’m open to ideas.

I see gby and company have moved into the new office, in Netanya. I’m giving a talk to Eddie A.‘s Linux Development Workshop on Tuesday, in Tel Aviv University. I live in Haifa. Netanya, for those of you who are not well versed in .il geography, is right in the middle between Haifa and Tel Aviv. Maybe I’ll have time to stop by on the way? work has been insane lately, not sure I can afford the time off.

Congratulations on your semi-anniversary, Gilad and Limor!

meta blogging

  • I’ve been somewhat quiet on the blog front lately. This is not
    because I no longer have anything to say; I’m still as wordy as
  • One reason I’ve grown quiet is that posting to both livejournal and advogato (via
    ljablog) was
    making me question the suitability of whatever it was that I
    wanted to post to both. Too often, I decided that it
  • Another reason is having been syndicated by both kerneltrap
    and planetdebian. Same
    thing, are my entries really suitable? guess not.

  • Now, however, this blog is no longer syndicated on either
    kerneltrap (technical
    difficulties that could not be surmounted
    ), or planet
    debian (I asked to be removed).

  • Therefore, as of now, I will post to advogato only when
    appropriate. The “heavy stuff”, so to speak. I will post to lj
    when feeling like it – the “fluffy stuff”, so to speak. Anyone
    who wants to syndicate
    this is more than welcome to, but I give no warranty.

  • It’s good to be back!
