Week 'o hell! (26 Apr 2000 at 18:09)
OK, it's definitely happening -- the final week-and-a-half crunch. Ouch!

On the plate:

- 3 issues of notes for Type Directed Compilation - Filesystem implementation for OS - Software Engineering slides and - Grading and administration for 15211 - Registration issues - Housing-for-next-year issues - Getting started on summer research project

So I really shouldn't be working on non-school projects for a week or two. Bummer, since I have a new experimental q3a level, some enhancements for snoot.org, stuff for typhoid, and other more fun stuff in the works.

SICO now keeps track of recently completed (xmated or drawn) games for a day, so your opponent can see when you pull a surprise mate on him. =)

This Week (20 Apr 2000 at 18:41)
Well, I just appear to have finished my first in a sequence of Really Busy Weeks. There's only a couple of weeks left of school, fortunately. ;)

Though I can relax a little, here's the plan for this weekend:

- Rewrite SCAB file format (typhoid) reader in native ML. Interfacing C with MLTon for complicated stuff is harder than I thought because of garbage collection issues.

- Really do the TeXing for my notes for Type Directed Compilation, since these are getting pretty late

- Get out the last programming assignment for 15-211.

Writing about what I'm going to do is much more fun than actually doing it!

The Quake 3 map I've been working on for the last week or two is now available here! I've had enough for now.

Oh yeah, I made a new techno futurefont yesterday called "Meta Language" and uploaded it to [ Divide By Zero ] Fonts.

Carnival Weekend (14 Apr 2000 at 13:52)
It's CMU's carnival weekend, which, for me, means Time To Get Stuff Done weekend. My projects for this weekend are:

- finish my Quake 3 level 'Antimony Crash' - finish up a font 'Conspicuous Consumption' - work on typhoid if possible (except Don is lazy and hasn't finished the SCAB file loader yet)

and for school: - prepare lecture on NFAs/regular expressions for Tuesday - OS filesystem Checkpoint on Monday - Get started on this summer's research project.

Lots to do!

UPD: Tom 7 MP3s (2) (10 Apr 2000 at 15:21)
Actually, while I was at it I added a few real new songs, digitized for the first time. This included "Theme from Java" and "Theme from SML" -- I think these songs are a great metaphor for these two languages. Compare the hokey, broken melody of Theme From Java to the somber elegance of Theme From SML. Note that SML delivers its ultimate punch with softness...

UPD: Tom 7 MP3s (10 Apr 2000 at 15:18)
I just fixed the horrible digital clipping on a few songs in my Tom 7 MP3 Collection. I also added a very short song (a cover, really) called "Megaman -- Go!".

Link: Vorbis (MP3 workalike) (09 Apr 2000 at 16:34)
Vorbis is a cool MP3 workalike, unencumbered by software patents (currently you have to pay someone if you want to write MP3 encoders). This is a pretty exciting project... it would be good to use this to write an efficient internet phone.

Rio 500 (07 Apr 2000 at 19:33)
I got a Rio 500 today. If anyone was thinking about buying one of these things but concerned that it might suck/have problems, go ahead because it doesn't.

The USB interface works quickly and flawlessly on my 98 computer and my 98SE laptop. It recognizes ID3 tags and displays them on the nice-looking LCD. It's smaller and lighter than I thought it would be. I like it!

UPD: Things I Wished I Could Have ... (04 Apr 2000 at 13:59)
Thanks to the help of Mike Bode, I finally solved level 8.4 in Adventures of Lolo III. (I had been stuck on this one for months!)

Since I couldn't find a solution when I broke down and searched for one on the internet, I put up mine:

Solution at TIWICHLOTIETWT.

UPD: Typhoid on Sourceforge (03 Apr 2000 at 00:05)
OK, our Sourceforge project account is up! Don and I are really crazy programmers, so there'll probably be something significant up here by the end of the week.

New Project (02 Apr 2000 at 20:15)
My roommate Don and I have started work on a project to make an adventure game out of his bizarre comic. We're using Standard ML (an advanced language of the sort I am wont to use since becoming a programming language snob) and SDL (a cross-platform graphics+sound library). We'll have a web page up as soon as our project is approved for Sourceforge!

The name of this project is "Typhoid", like the fever.

I've updated SICO to use "smart" chess notation. This is pretty keen, check it out.
