  It always pays off to have the IT people like you.

They reworked the wiring for all the cubes in my office this morning so that I could have a wired connected for my laptop, and they are going to look into getting me a printer!

  When asked the only thing I could think to say about him was that he owned a suspiciously large number of crowbars for someone that rented.

  Sometimes, you realize that something has become a habit...

and your life has become something totally different than it ever was before...

I've started using $j$ instead of $i$. Something has certainly gone wrong with my life.

  Just me, or when you feel the need to start including hashes of function pointers on all your structs so that you get bad (not to mention indecipherable) polymorphism, you should consider using a language other than C.

(It should be noted this code isn't actually written in C, but the C-like language which gcc compiles by default).

  So I'm talking with the prof. I work for, and my work and such, and she tells me that
she's funding me with money she didn't really have any other use for, so she doesn't
really care if I get anything accomplished this summer.

I'm not sure if that's good thing or not.

Finding the Weight of a Fishhook   
10:34am 17/05/2005
  Recently I needed to find out the weight of a fish hook*. Of course, being a master of Google-Fu, and being relatively certain that this information was on the Internet somewhere, I hit google. I hit google hard.

Of course, the naive searches like "fish hook weight" did yield anything useful. Adding expected words like gram, gauge, mass, didn't either. It was a few days ago that I did my last work on it, so I can't relate my entire series of searches. Let's just say that I still don't know how much a fish hook weighs.

Sometimes lexical searching techniques are just not enough. Yet, everybody's going to search based techniques for data organization. Rather said, people are to lazy to maintain hierarchies. I could have found my information easily enough Measurements->Weight of Things->Sports->Fishing->Fishing hook is easy enough isn't it?

* I'm aware that there's quite a variety of different fish hook sizes/shapes and accordingly weights. I wasn't picky. (Though a 1-inch fishhook without barb would have been preferably).

An accuracy-based learning classifier system with a bounded population size will not evolve an optimal classifier population. It does not prefer classifiers advocating the optimal policy to those that don't.
