No Title

Through no particular planning of my own, it turns out I will only
have worked one complete 5 day week in the last 8 weeks of 2002. Next
week is it. With these short long-weekend vacations, Thanksgiving,
XMas and then New Years, no full work weeks for me. This really kind
of rocks. I could get used to life as a slackard.

We’re home. We are spitting and fuming to find that Tom Glavine has
signed with the Mets. It’s one thing to have left, but the Mets?
Yuck. Here are the pasted entries from the plane and airport:

I’m in SFO airport. For the first time in 6 flights, I was able to
pass through the first level metal detector without being routed
through the wanding crap. What a relief, I hate that crap. The
SuperShuttle did a fine job, getting us to the airport almost exactly
two hours early. This was plenty of time to check in, go through
security, eat a little lunch and now to play with computer some. I’ve
been walking through some of the SDL test programs, trying to
understand that code a little. I’m wondering if anyone has done
standard libraries for SDL, like menu bars and other stuff. If so, I
can think about it similarly to the way I use the AWT or Swing classes
in Java. If these don’t exist, I might try to write some generic
classes and then release them as such. So far, it seems pretty easy to
understand. I haven’t dug through the networking classes but if they
are anything like the core classes, they’ll be quite easy to
comprehend. Getting close to boarding, so I’m shutting down for
now. More from the plane.

Both directions of this trip have had shitty movies. On the way out
was Home Alone and now we have Crocodile
Hunter
. It’s the kind of film that one only has to glance at
the screen once every five minutes without the headset to realize that
it really really sucks. The headsets were free this time, which was
not cheap enough to induce me to watch this piece of dreck. I don’t
even like Steve Irwin, his show paling in comparison to the far
superior Jeff Corwin Experience.
