Rainy days and Java always get me down


I've Moved My Blog

It's currently located at http://www.urlinone.com/blog

I should say "I'm moving my blog." It's a pretty painful process.

Pebble has blown up on me, and it's been many months since I've been able to blog reliably. I've lost posts. And now I've got to figure out how to migrate my past blog posts from Pebble to my new destination without all the URLs changing, lest external links become 404 Not Founds.

Why does everything in the 21st century have to be a three-day project???

Microsoft Office Outlook 2003. A product so advanced that it understands time coordinates from other galaxii.

When this ingenious product pops up a reminder for you, did you know that you can snooze it, not only with the drop-down list of options from minutes to weeks, but that you can also type in an arbitrary floating point amount of time to snooze? You can type in 1m, 5.3 d, 2w, etc. (One problem is that I'm not sure if 1m means I'll be reminded again in a minute or a month. But that's my fault for not RTFM.) But I discovered today that you can also type in 1frdtydangy.

Interestingly, it gave me an error when I tried frdtydangy. Naturally. How can you expect it to delay based on a lone unit of measure, if you don't tell it how many of that unit of measure you mean? I mean, it's not like Outlook 2003 can read your mind or something, right? No, it wasn't until I added a leading 1 that Outlook 2003 understood that 1frdtydangy meant I wanted this particular reminder to snooze for the amount of time it takes the moon of wklcphhhftzsh-po to complete one full revolution around it's neutron star.

I hope it's less than a frdtydangy before I can install OS X on my laptop.


OK, that was really funny. Cheers.
