QOTD:
#Enterprise class names! It has come to our attention that some people
#think the names of the Beautiful Soup parser classes are too silly
#and "unprofessional" for use in enterprise screen-scraping. We feel
#your pain! For such-minded folk, the Beautiful Soup Consortium And
#All-Night Kosher Bakery recommends renaming this file to
#"RobustParser.py" (or, in cases of extreme enterprisitude,
#"RobustParserBeanInterface.class")

From crummy.com, a guy I've been reading about since sophomore year of high school. Things like this are why segfault.org was funny.

Moving on,

Got back from SF a short time ago. Had a blast at some former-coworker-of-a-friend's birthday party. It was one of those entertaining retro parties, where everyone drank like fish and played those stupid drinking games from high school. An actual occurrence:

Yosv: "Ok, the card is J for make a rule; Kris, what new rule would you like to impose?"
Kris: "Umm... nobody can touch their hands to their face!"
Omar: "You mean like this?" [Omar proceeds to hold his hand just in front of his face]
Kris: "No, silly, you actually have to touch your face."
Whiz: "Yeah, like this!" [smacks Omar's hand into his face] "Oh, look at that! Drink up!"
Omar: "Ha ha fucking ha."
Whiz: "Dude! No curse words! Drink again!"

So, yeah, nostalgia all around. Nothing like riding the last muni train without a pass while buzzed.

Nice. We've got all sorts of programs here, with wierd names - we're all about the quality acronyms - so we'll name a program "GOAT" if we can manage it, especially if the data collection service running is called the "GOAT Herder".

Glad to hear you had a good weekend; my trip to Arcata sucked. Had my little sister not been with me, I'd probably have had a good time - or at least, not remembered as much of it as a did. Hooray for $3.05 a gallon gas!
