Time to combine two of my favorite things: Professor Layton and obscure languages! There was one puzzle (of the hardest diffficulty) that I could have spent 40 minutes working out, but instead spent an hour and half solving in Prolog (for those unfamiliar with Prolog, check out this post for a description of what this magic language is!).
My last blog before this got digitally bulldozed: I was hosting on a pay-per-webserver and when I got a new credit card forgetting to update the account, they sent one spam-collected warning before they deleted my site. Luckily I was able to salvage most of the posts via Google Cache, with the hope that I could write a script to de-WordPress-HTMLize them, and upload again so they could see another day. I haven’t done it yet, but might still. The main reason I haven’t is because a) those posts had lots of images I hosted on the server as well, which makes them uglier, and b) those posts are like these, but much more boring.
I found an awesome little post on Vim, which itself links to other excellent Vim posts. BFS these links, kids, and learn you a console editor if you haven’t already!

I just wrote a long blog post talking about why it sucks playing Zerg in Starcraft 2. But friends, there has been too much whining on this blog of late! It’s time to bring back two things we’ve missed for some time: computers and whimsy!
On my Eat, Pray, Love post, Lindy West over at The Stranger wrote a review of the movie adaptation that more or less echoes my sentiments (like I imagine for Ms. West, the sentiments get vicious primarily for entertainment value). If you haven’t seen her Sex and the City 2 review, its similar in style, tone, entertainment, and parallels with how I feel.
Concerning Teh Gays:
Time for a small life update, as the posts have slowed down for a while and some narration is due:
I just moved to San Francisco after graduating from Brown in Providence, RI. For a myriad of reasons I didn’t spend much time at home over the summer, and have been living in and out of boxes since May. Just last week I moved in to my new apartment, and will slowly, surely become a normal well-adjusted human being again.
A few things. One, cursing, and strong words!
… enjoy some lulz. Some Nirvana meets Jackson 5:
