    Using a new tool to write maps for insurance carriers. The good side, very scalable. the downside I have to have everything finished, tested, and in production no later than early December and the learning curve is a bit steeper than expected.

    Tonight I am installing Ubuntu 10.10 on my old laptop.
    I have 10.10 RC on my desktop right now, dual booting with windows. Seems nice enough, so far...

    Code coverage analysis is fun.

    Except when your product contains about 50+ binaries, each of which is thousands upon thousands of lines of code long.

    Where does one start? With the missed blocks I suppose...

    My seminar, on the other hand, I can't wait for. B4 I put the final polishing on my talk though I still need to figure out one thing:

    How to determine charge mobility ((cm^2)/Vs) using the SCLC (space charge limited current) regime. My article mentions that charge mobility for this particular photovoltaic device was determined in the SCLC regime, but mentions nothing about the apparatus used to determine it.

    I just found an electrical engeneering MS thesis on SCLC and an article conveniently titled: Charge mobility measurement techniques in organic semiconductors. I should have this down in an hour or so.

    Cool.

    I am writing crypto code for work right now. Can't say what its for though other than it'll make WebOS more secure.
    I'm also writing an long abstract/proposal for a presentation on a secure key manager I wrote. It's for a fancy HP internal tech conference. I don't expect to get invited, and if I do it'll interfere with training/racing so it's no loss.

    And I got another patent that I filed like 8 years and three companies ago.

    It has a point for me - I can't read or post to the twitter thread whilst at work as they filter any URL with "twitter" in it!

    seriously? That's pretty hardcore. I thought my work was bad.

    They filtered a website that makes car parts, because it has a word in the URL that makes the server think it's about games. I forget the URL now, but it was pretty funny.

    I remember in the mid-late 90's it was my job at one place to audit the proxy logs. I set up a text search batch on the logs searching for XXX and a bunch of other key words. We ended up contacting one guy in a regional office as he spent 8 hours a day every day searching for pr0n - using the altavista search engine. The search phrases that he used I remember were quite funny.

    There is a bike shop in town called Hardcore Bikes and my work filters it because it has "hardcore" in the name.

    so, a forum that would help you do your job, no luck. That's unfortunate.

    What do y'all think of Apple's new announcements?

    Macbook air looks nice, but they are really slicing the market thin between iPad, MBA, MB, MBP...it would be interesting to sell how each of these products sell.

    Facetime for mac is a cool concept and it will make factime more useful...but I wish they had integrated it into iChat instead of starting a whole new program.

    OS X Lion looks pretty cool as well, I just hope their love for all things iPhone doesn't limit the functionality. For example, full screen apps seem gimicky as hell. There's a reason for a windowed OS.

    I'm not a fan of apple's corporate philosophy. I'm not so ignorant as to think other companies are generally better, but apple seems to think that they have a "better" corporate philosophy and it gets on my nerves. I'm expressing it poorly, but I think apple has a higher opinion of itself than is merited, a bit of a holier than thou attitude, and it bugs me a lot.

    I probably would buy one of their laptops though.

    trying to get 32 bit software to run on a 64 bit server. Should be simple, since the dual X5550 processors in these servers is a fully backwards compatible x64 processor.

    If I may geek out for a moment, these servers are so badass. Dual X5550 Quad Core server processors, @ 2.66 GHz, for a total of 8 cores, and all for only $1200 per CPU.

    16 Gigabytes of fast server RAM. 1 TB HD. That's a lot of power.
