Linux, musical road-dogging, and daily life by Paul W. Frields
A little excitement.

A little excitement.

Today was weirdly bifurcated between hacking and sightseeing. Morning and late night I spent working on Luke Macken’s irssi-notify script, which Thorsten wrote about earlier today.

At Luke’s suggestion, I put a quick project page up at Google Code. Hopefully folks will feel free to make (reasonable) suggestions for improvements. One of the things that I’d really like to do is handle the text messages in a systematic, Perl-function-y way. The notify-send bit doesn’t like some characters, which need to be marked as XML/HTML entities instead (<, >, &, and ‘ ). If anyone knows an elegant way for me to convert messages properly, let me know. (And of course participants are welcome!)

The middle part of the day I spent at Mount Vernon with my family. We had a great time, except maybe for my dad, who for the first time was entitled to a “Senior” ticket:

What a drag it is, getting old.
