I went to a show last night with friends. I was cold and tired, the food was overpriced and I didn't enjoy it, I couldn't hold interest in conversation. My seat was uncomfortable, the venue was wanky, I couldn't wait to leave. Were the performances really so pretentious? Were my angry reactions to subtle political and social agendas justified? Or am I so mired in cynicism that I've lost the capacity to enjoy myself, or others. I was with friends who I love and everyone else had a good time.

I will avoid your cafe and never set foot in it again if you write "breaky" instead of "brekky" on your specials board even once.

20 years ago: I wanna live in the big city!

10 years ago: Maybe somewhere on the outskirts will do?

today: Do they have a cabin in the woods with high-speed Internet?

Stanford physicists count sound particles with quantum microphone. A device that eavesdrops on the quantum whispers of atoms could form the basis of a new type of quantum computer.

It would be really weird if the only tool you had for eating was your mouth.

SpaceEngine is a realistic virtual Universe you can explore on your computer spaceengine.org/

I scored an old oscilloscope today. It's from 1982 and made in Victoria by a company called BWD. It's in pretty good nick, though the screen seems to flicker a bit when turning various knobs. I found a service and repair manual for it too. Apparently these are easy to repair. I can get three more if I want too. Now to make a function generator. Maybe I'll use that Arduino kit I've had for ages. I found a thing on the internet using a Arduino nano.

These MCSE/MCSA books read as one long advertising brochure for how great Microsoft software is. Makes me uneasy for some reason.

I resent that my computer, the most complex and powerful machine I'll likely ever use, is turned on by some pissant little five-cent plastic button like it's a shitty VCR from the 90's. I want a massive ornate copper knife switch, as long as my forearm, with the lower position hand-lettered "HALT" and the engaged position labelled "COMPUTE." When I go to use my computer, I want it to know I MEAN it.

Sit down to do some work

Brain: "Hey you know what was awesome? The Amiga version of lemmings"

3 hours later: "Walk faster you stupid little lemmings or I'll nuke you all you little bastards don't think I won't do it!!!"

Another productive day :-)
