Feeling a little immature, we searched the mozilla source for swear words. Some of these comments are priceless: (crap, fuck, shit)...
Now that I've built up your confidence, I should mention that Mozilla is actually pretty good recently. They've got middle click opening links in new windows, and it doesn't really crash any more than IE or NS4. Plus, using it gives you a warm feeling like when you push your disabled friend around in his wheelchair.
Finally, I managed to grab a picture of the elusive Dirty/Clean guy; a sort of mythical figure at CMU. He hangs around our campus, especially the Highlander Cafeteria where we ate freshman year, and he seems to be really worried about getting infected by the germs which hide on all of our surfaces. (Normally, you'd expect to see him with about five napkins in each hand, to keep him from actually touching whatever he's touching -- no joke.) Anyway, this is him.
Here are a bunch of pictures from the Superchunk show today at CMU. The best ones are at the end when I ran up front for Precision Auto. The small photos, in clusters of 8, were shot in "continuous" mode, so you should look at them in succession to get a sense of "action".
The good ol' Magnetic Fields played at CMU today. Great show; we totally sold-out McConomy Auditorium. They mostly played stuff off 69 Love Songs Disc 1 (which is the best one) and a few favorites from the other discs and new songs. The new ones sound really good. A couple more pictures from the show are here!
I created a project on sourceforge.net to house various bits of software which I've written but which aren't big enough to get their own project or page. Don't bother looking at the project page, just browse CVS. (hints on my SECRET PROJECT...?)
Yesterday I fixed a long standing bug in aphasia which was causing random crashes for as long as I can remember. I found the bug with the help of ElectricFence. Hooray! As it stands, it hasn't crashed since the fix and has served 8500 pages... Now that it's so stable, I may consider documenting it well or finally finishing up snoot.org.
I updated good ol' TIWICHLOTIETWT with information on making binary redirection (of stdin/stdout) work on win32. This is part of a SECRET PROJECT with my roommate, one I think we might actually finish this time!
Entering the official rotation now is GBV's new CD called "Isolation Drills". It's a pretty good rock album, which most people seem to like better than the last two. Also check out this quality video of them singing on Rolling Stone's site.
Karthik found this recording of the Irving Plaza Pavement show which we saw two summers ago here. Even though they were touring behind their crummy "Terror Twilight" album, they played "Gold Soundz", so it was a good show in my book. (Unfortunately missing from this collection is the excellent set that US Maple played in opening!)
Pavement is history now, but Malkmus lives on, and we're going to go see him tomorrow night at the Beehive...
Also soon: Magnetic Fields, Superchunk, Fugazi, etc. April is music-month!
On top of that I've got a whole lot of crap to do; stuff that isn't fun like finding an apartment and a summer job. Also grading. And projects are starting to be due, even though it is not nearly the end of the semester crunch.
After a week and a half of really big dinners provided by recruiters and parents, I've decided to eat healthy and cheap food for a while. And to exercise. The weather is getting nicer, and I guess it is making me feel better, but it is still a fake, zombie-like better. Oof.
