January 19, 2008 The Language For Smart People and Language For Masses dichotomy is one that leaves a queasy feeling in my stomach. Just because a distinction has become accepted by the community doesn't mean it is a valid one.
January 17, 2008 A look at a recent lesson I created for one of my first year junior high school classes.
January 16, 2008 A brief description of a backwards incompatible change in LifeFlow, while also taking a quick look at how LifeFlow is implemented and where it is going.
January 15, 2008 A look at the new mod system incorporated in LifeFlow to facilitate adding arbitrary non-standard code to your deployment.
January 14, 2008 I try to keep my philosophical musings pretty private. Statements of purpose and meaning have a scale of grandeur that as of yet I can't translate into a public setting. Still, a simple thought: living is changing.
January 11, 2008 An introduction to the lovely town I have been living in for some five months now. Lots of pictures to illustrate the points that words never can.
January 10, 2008 I like *Shoes*, a GUI toolkit from Why The Lucky Stiff, a lot. Its a joy to use. Except when it goes haywire.
January 10, 2008 A few thoughts and pictures of my stylish Suzuki Wagon R that cheerfully (it has a flower sticker on the door to the gas tank) escorts me through the rural landscapes of Kamioka.
January 10, 2008 Programmers talk about DRY, or Don't Repeat Yourself, all the time. Its a strategy for making programming more pleasant, more efficient, and to reduce errors. LifeFlow uses a simple idea, which I have brazenly labeled Dynamic Blog Context, to try to take a few steps toward DRY while writing blogs.
January 10, 2008 A look at extending the Python Markdown library. It happens to be an extremely well written library, so extending it is a bit more fun than it ought to be. Take a look.
January 8, 2008 As you can see (if you are a regular) I have changed the style of the website a bit. Hope you enjoy it.
