nick and ollie stopped by. they were gonna go eat but i didn't want to go out ... don't want to put on a shirt, shoes, or spend money. instead, i'm trying to figure out how to cook a pizza .... i think i have the oven figured out now. it's preheating to 400 degrees ... that'd be cool if all household appliance did have IP addresses and responded to XML-RPC queries or had some sort of inteface exposed via IDL so you could do things like watch the oven temperature from downstairs, or register callbacks, so the oven could call a hook on my local machine when it's done, which could then send me some email or something. that'd rule. but for now i better run back upstairs and see if it's hot enough yet.
