Taking the day off tomorrow.
Just posted a new version of squeeze.el which is what lets me control the mp3 player hooked up to the stereo from my text editor while I code. It's been broken since they updated the slimserver software for a while. I'm gonna try and add some more code to it eventually, because it's really useful, and I like it.
I've been listening to a lot more music lately, as fueled by my subscription to emusic.com. After a few months with them, I think I have to say that I miss having the album art and liner notes, but there's a wide enough variety of music on their site that I can always find something to download to fill up my monthly quota of 40 songs. It's gonna start filling up hard-drives soon, though, so I'll have to start shunting some stuff off to CDs or something.
Tomorrow is a day off. I'll hopefully get a bit of exercise bike in, and do a bit of reading. I've finally started reading Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon after all these years. I've liked the first 50 pages or so. I also might solder on my ham radio a bit. We were gonna go camping tomorrow night but it looks like that's gonna have the kibosh put on it due to a lack of good campground space.
Met with the Thesis Chair this week and we're all systems go for launching the thesis research this next semeseter, so it's looking like my time will be filled with statistics and phonetics for the next few months. Gonna do the (much) lesser of the two possible directions I could have gone. This is definitely the much more practical (though it's still computational historical linguistics so it's really far from practical) though, the other one would have been highly-theoretical uncharted territory on which it would have been easy to fail (though due to the high theory, easy to fake my way through). The thesis topic I'm choosing will be much more suited towards my varied background.
And that's the Paul Huff update for the night. I bid you adieu.
