Deadlines and stuff


OScon is heap’s of fun, but I’ve got to get this silly paper done. I have finished the meerkat CLI client, but my red hat machine keeps crashing (actually, X, not the kernel). Jon Orwant mentioned our little battle over a CGI voting script. At the time, I couldn’t figure out how he was spamming me; now I realized he just became me on the system and moved a modified program over the original. I think I might have tried RCSing the file and taken my write privs away from the file, but really, how can you be protected from yourself? Oddly enough, this is the theme of Fight Club, which I just finished reading.

My life is a Carl Jung thesis.
