Catch-up

At this point everyone knows about the plane crash in NYC and that Cory Lidle of the New York Yankees was killed in the crash. There is nothing I can add to this other than my sympathies to his family, friends, teammates, and my praise for the firefighters and police for a quick response.

I ended up having to reschedule my training session with Bernard today. He asked to do it later, and because I am going to L.A. tomorrow and have errands to run this evening, we just rescheduled for next Thursday. This has been a lazy week for me with respect to workouts.

For computer science geeks, chapter 10 of Donald Knuth’s book, Literate Programming is a good one. I read through it this morning because it related to some documentation work that I am doing on software that I have been working on for the last month and a half. It is a kind of history of the development of TEX and the debugging thereof. Most people who read this blog (with the possible exception of kevnyc) will have no idea what TEX is.

Speaking of kevnyc, I did a video chat with Kevin last night. I was at home in my office and he was on the beach in Monterey, California, right around sunset. He even managed to capture a pretty cool screenshot of this while it was happening.


Lots of stuff to do before I head to L.A. tomorrow evening. I noticed that Zeke has been scratching quite a bit and I think I noticed a flea, which is weird since he gets regular monthly flea medicine. I’m out of the medicine this month so I’m stopping at the vet on the way home tonight to get some more for him. I’ve got to clean up, do laundry and some other chores, and of course, pack for my trip. I also need to squeeze in time for new episodes of Smallville and Gray’s Anatomy.
