1. Sysad stuff: bah, humbug: 23:31
Random Japanese sentence: 「おや、おまえさん！」おばあさんは言いました。「これはいったいどうしたのです？」「わたしはねこが一匹ほしいと言ったのに、これはなんですか」 "My dear!" she cried, "What are you doing? I asked for one little cat. And what do I see? -. [Oya, omaesan!] obaasan wa iimashita. [kore wa ittai doushita no desu?] [watashi wa neko ga ippiki hoshii to itta no ni, kore wa nan desu ka]
2. Good karma: Emacs: 23:36
One day, about 2 years ago now (Holy Cow! Sacha, has it been *that* long? :) I stumbled upon this thing called emacs-wiki and planner-mode. I fired off an e-mail to the maintainer asking a couple of questions. Someone named Sacha answered back and had such enthusiasm for my e-mail and my questions that i immediately joined the list and started playing with planner and emacs-wiki.
Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! =) Melt, melt, melt.
E-Mail from Paul Lussier
Random Japanese sentence: いすの上にねこがいます。 There is a cat on the chair. Isu no ue ni neko ga imasu.
3. Good Food Box: Avocado antics: 23:43
I have decided not to eat out unless absolutely necessary, if only because I hate throwing food away. The Good Food Box is evilly designed to require me to either throw parties or eat lots of veggie-based dishes if I'm to avoid wasting too much food. I would love to get together with someone who'll take care of the meat dishes. =)
Random Japanese sentence: 猫はぬれるのを嫌がる。 Cats dislike being wet.
4. Emacs-happy: 23:48
There's something a bit off about the Emacs learning curve graph - it's bounded, for one - but yeah, Emacs really is a very different experience.
Evan Monroig said on the emacs-wiki-discuss mailing list:
So after all my wishlist was already there and I didn't know it.... hehe
and Wei-Hao Lin replied:
This is Emacs. There's no wish. Only how.
On Technorati: emacs
Random Japanese sentence: この猫はネズミを追いかけない。 This cat doesn't chase rats.
