SIGGRAPH just ended (, )

by fluffy at 6:22 PM
Just as it began... not with a bang, but a whimper.

Pros, cons, and more uncertainty than I had when I started.

What does "international" mean? ()

by fluffy at 9:28 PM
According to the food caterers at this Siggraph party, "international" means:
  • A table with nachos ("Mexican")
  • A table with pizza ("Italian")
  • A table with bratwurst, sauerkraut, and pretzels ("Bavarian")
  • Warm Heineken

More Siggraph stuff (, )

Now the problem is that there's too much I want to attend which is all at the same time. Grr.

Last update: 5:10 PM PDT (I may have a job!)

Bad pizza day ()

by fluffy at 8:21 PM
How long and at what temperature should one bake a pizza with a whole wheat crust? 'coz mine's been going for like 25 minutes at 475 now and although the toppings are getting pleasantly crispy, the crust is still basically raw. I think it's getting moisture from the tomato sauce or something.

DDRMania ()

I passed another 9* level. Which I followed up by passing another 8* level. Which I then "cooled off" from by passing a 7* level. And after all that, I still somehow managed to get MY BEST SET SCORE EVER. Holy cow.

The invenerable Cafépress is now offering on-demand book publishing. It looks like it wouldn't be too costly to finally make Hypnagogia available in bound format, for those who really want to buy a bound copy of it (though I don't think the three or four people who insisted it'd be a huge commercial success would be interested in it anymore).

Cafe mocha candy ()

by fluffy at 3:58 PM
I was just buying a quick, late and cheap lunch at the grocery store when I noticed "Café Intense: Candy with X-treme Caffeine" candies in various flavors, including cappucino and café mocha. So I got some café mocha ones.

Minor change... ()

You may notice the slightly-more prominent PayPal button in the corner of the index page. I have a reason for it... And it really pisses me off that I feel that I have to stoop to this level.

Cross-dimensional band ()

by fluffy at 11:41 AM
I had a rather funky dream last night. I'll try to remember what I can about it. Unfortunately, the funkiness was all visual in nature, so capturing it in anything less than full animation probably won't work too well...

How I've been contributing to arteriosclerosis ()

by fluffy at 9:21 PM
Hey, it's cheap, it's edible, and it's got a lot more nutrition and flavor than a bowl of Ramen.

New AudioCompress release ()

by fluffy at 11:12 PM
Grab v1.5 while it's hot.

Also, this is the 28th entry. (Yes, I know the archive file isn't numbered 256. But trust me anyway, this is the 256th entry.)

New AudioCompress feature ()

by fluffy at 9:05 PM
Hopefully I'll be making an AudioCompress release soon, since someone submitted a patch to let it act as an esd plugin (so all esd-speaking apps can be processed by it, which makes me very happy indeed).

The only reason I'm not releasing it yet is that for some reason, it keeps on blocking on write after 31 fragments are processed. Anyone have any ideas? The patch submitter doesn't have any idea what's going on for me.

Some of us just have crappy memories when it comes to where we parked our cars.

The rest I agree with though.
