It was a bad day. A lot of bad stuff happened. And I'd love to forget it all. But I don't. Not ever. Because this is what I do. Every time, every day, every second, this: On five, we're bringing down the government.

When I plug in my iPod, iTunes crashes.

Update: The iPod lost all the music, but still had the podcasts.  So I tried resetting it - whereupon it lost everything and wouldn't even start up.  Which left me with an hour's commute each way, no iPod, and a notebook with a 20-minute battery life. sad

Update: Reset, reboot, restore, and Unagi-tan is back to life, albeit very empty.  And now it thinks it's syncing.  Ah, there we go.  It's just worked out that it's a 160GB iPod and I have nearly 500GB of stuff in iTunes, so it's selected some unspecified subset for me...

Because It Bears Repeating

Stephen Conroy and the Rudd Labour Government are the enemies of free speech and of human rights in general.  They are ignorant and dishonest in equal measure, and their only saving grace is that they are neither competent enough nor popular enough to get their abominable legislation passed through the Senate.

Toshiba Australia, You Still Suck, Though Objectively, At Least, Not As Much As You Did Last Month

Subjectively, however, I'm even more annoyed than before.

There's now a model of their neat little T110 notebook available in Australia for $699, much more in line with pricing elsewhere in the world.  It has an AMD rather than an Intel chip, but I'm fine with that.

But it's the single core model.  The dual core model available elsewhere is only slightly more expensive, has only slightly shorter batter life - and is twice as powerful.

But we don't get that one.

Fractal Wrongness In A Programming Language

I have 800 arrays of about 5000 integers each that I need to combine into an array of about 4 million integers.  I don't care about the order or anything, I just want one big array.

PHP had used 8 minutes of CPU time and 1.2GB of RAM when I shot it through the head.

Solution: Don't use PHP.
