Fun computer & LJ stuff going on, but I’d rather hack on it than describe it now.

I suppose the most notable thing of the day was going on a bike ride with Whitaker to the lightrail station and then biking all around downtown Portland.

Evan’s new “smart quote” code in logjam rocks, as does his rotating SVG throbber.

Reading Cryptonomicon lately.
