The concert is at 8 PM on Saturday the 28th. Watch me spaz out on the drums or whatever.

- A good waiter-style corkscrew is a heck of a lot easier and faster to use than a wing-style opener. Screw rabbit-ears openers. There's a reason waiters use waiter-style openers. (But it has to be a good double-hinged one, not one which is just a corkscrew and a useless lever thing which can't actually reach the lip of the bottle when the corkscrew is inserted. The one I linked to is the specific one I have, which also has a really nice foil cutter. I bought it at Target though Target's website doesn't list it but it cost $6.)

- When I get stressed out over something stupid, my manager does whatever he can to make it right. Usually he succeeds.
- My officemate knows a lot more about C++ than me, having actually worked in it since I was in grade school. He is not afraid to dive into my code and critique it, and he found a lot of stuff which could be improved a lot (and this is seriously the first time that's happened to me, and I was totally hapy to hear it). I'm always happy to learn new things, and glad when someone else wants to work on my stuff rather than just trust/expect me to do it all solo.

So I went over to his office to check it out.

I don't like most RTSes, but Darwinia abstracts away the resource management enough that you hardly even notice it. It also has a great visual and audio style (with music by trash80, one of my favorite minimal electronica producers), and a lot of great little homages to the classic demoscene (it's worth starting up repeatedly just to see the various "bootloader" intros for example).

Then I got a haircut at the community college. It was terrible. Then I got to the house that I had just bought and discovered I had an infestation of informational pamphlet droppers.

Googling for leads on what's been plaguing me for the past six months brought me to your site, specifically this post:

The bizarre thing was when I got home today, I had a large padded envelope from the ACM: which had the latest SIGGRAPH proceedings in it! (Specifically the "full conference DVD-ROM" set with all the papers, sketches, art gallery, and who knows what else on it.)
I haven't been an ACM member for two years and when I was a member it was pretty unreliable as to whether I got the proceedings or not (sometimes I wouldn't get them at all, sometimes I'd get two or three sets). Now that I haven't been sending them money for a while, I'm actually getting this stuff that I don't care about anymore. And having a dream about it before it happens. Peculiar.
