Odd day today at work, many doings: our project was extended for a week, through May 4, and I was trained for another, short-term project. The net effect of this is to keep me employed for a while longer.
When dealing with assholes, at what point does the knowledge that you yourself are not an asshole stop being enough to provide satisfaction?
I finally, after almost three months of reading it pretty much exclusively at lunch, finished Katharine Graham's "Personal History" today. It was very interesting and informative, if Saharan in its dryness.
Today's Link Of The Day is a real time-consuming treat. The good people associated with DouglasAdams.com have converted the ancient Infocom text adventure game "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" into a web-based Java game. It's not perfect-most frustratingly, there's no save function, so if you die you have to start all the way at the beginning again-but it's an absolute blast. Go, enjoy. http://www.douglasadams.com/creations/infocomjava.html
