hackhack [Sep. 25th, 2003|12:00 am]
Brad Fitzpatrick

Today I ignored all my business obligations and just programmed. So very, very sweet.

b0rked left. I gave him the bike Whitaker and I found in the woods. He has a Sidekick. Sidekicks look cool. I wish they were hackable, though.

My hair is getting really long.

New TV season is starting. Smallville, Gilmore Girls, Joe Schmoe... I think I'll confine myself to those. Been having more fun with reading lately, though.

I hate Diebold and black box voting. I'm anxious to see what happens with software patents in Europe.

Apples are tasty, but not the tops and bottoms.

I've done my obligatory post.

You might want to check out the Palm Tungsten W if you want something similar to the Sidekick that's hackable. There's also the Handspring Treo.

I read up some on Diebold's eeeevil voting systems, and even found a copy of the voting system and real voting data (in an unprotected Access database) accidentally posted to their site to show you how easy it is to hack it. Haven't bothered to look at it, though.

I personally like my Nokia 3650, but it lacks a touch screen and qwerty keyboard, if that's important to you. The API is also like nothing I've seen before. It's completely object oriented... Your application is an object that's derived from a base app object, and it just gets weirder from there. I haven't had a lot of time to mess around with it, though.

There's also the SonyEricsson P800, which, like the Nokia 3650, runs a version of the Symbian OS. No qwerty keyboard, though.

Sucks that they mved Smallville. The One Tree Hill show they slotted after Gilmore Girls didn't look very impressive. Acting was bad and story line was same as half the other shows on the air.

(Worse than that, they took That 70's Show off after Gilmores and Smallville - used to be a good TV night)

I'm actually kinda glad they moved it - Gilmore Girls is my show, and Smallville is my husband's show, but I have to get up early the next day and I don't want to wait until 10 to settle into bed and relax before I sleep. (Plus, I like Smallville too, so I couldn't very well just skip it!)

Man! Wish I could watch those! I can't figure out how to hook up my antenna amidst the dvd/vcr player cords all over the back end of my teevee...sigh. Yeah, just when I had the dvd/vcr mix working...I decide I need actual teevee...and of freaking course I don't get to see the season premire of Gilmore Girls...sigh :(

Make a "manage yourself, let me program" day.. Say every wednesday or monday... It might save your sanity in the long run.. :)

Grow your hair out! Long hair kicks ass, except when its in that annoying "long enough to bug you, short enough so you cant tie it back" phase..

Don't give in to the temptation to cut it- your hair is sexy.

Friends premiers tonight.

Friends, Will and Grace. Oh dear. The world will be full of laughter for two blissful hours. Well, the world of the United States that is. For people with TV. And electricity. And hearing and eyesight. Geez. Things aren't so bad really.
