1. Moved in to my more permanent apartment. It feels strange to move my stuff into a room rich with the owners identity — photos, clothes, book/film collection.

  2. Fascinating — Konrad Lorenz compares cultural revolution with exoskeleton-clad Arthropods shedding their shells:

    The act of demolishing carefully erected structures, though indispensable if better adapted ones are to arise, is always followed by a period of vulnerability.

  3. Checked into Localeyes, Ashburton for the two-yearly eye excercise session. First time I’m having to pay for it (not being in school is scary)

  4. Well, that was a successful rehearsal. Come see the real thing! 3rd March, 2:30 at Kingkerswell Parish Church. Tickets £5 on the door.

  5. The gig went alright, considering we had major bagpipe tuning problems (chanter stuck a quarter-tone between F# and G). Thanks to everyone who came!

    Now I’ve played Bach in front of a paying audience I feel like a real musician. Couldn’t have done it without Robin Andrews though :)

  6. Application of notes or similar: reminding people to contact people in areas they don't go to often. Potential flow:

    • I create an event with a location
    • my software searches my contacts for people in this area
    • a list of those contacts are presented in a non modal fashion
    • If I can't remember where I met the person, hovering on them shows date and location of when I added them to my contacts
  7. Learning new trompette patterns with Gregory Jolivet, and decided to try to evolve a micro syntax for representing them in notes, so I can add some SVG or Audio-API magic afterwards.

    1 4 1 3 1 4 1 3 1234 1234 1234 1 3

    And a variation: 12 4 1 3 12 4 1 3 1234 1234 1234 1

  8. I propose this law of system personality:

    Put a system in a box and it becomes a thing. Give a thing a name and it becomes a product. Give a product a brand/atmosphere and it gains a personality.
