... and clearly these two news items would not be expressed as a pair in this table.
I've had a few dreams lately in which I was in college, living in the dorms, and just got a cat to live with me and my roomies. But this cat, he is pure evil. You can see it in the little bastard's eyes. The second you fall asleep he's going to eat you. Then he's going to look up your grandma in your address book, hitch a ride to her place, and eat her.
Also in these dreams I have the ability to drink a 16-ounce glass of straight gin and still go to class, just a little bit impaired.
It's a very good thing I don't really have that ability.
In un-related news...
My "moongazing plugin" for gaim is almost finished! All I have to do is set up the callbacks for periodic updates (this is easy, I know how to do it) and then apply the logic I'm using for profiles to status messages. Well, then I have to rewrite the moon-positioning code because my current source for that code is xearth and xearth, while open-source, has a non-GPL compatible license (specifically, it appears to prohibit distribution for commercial use) and gaim (which my program is also a derivative work of) uses the GPL. Obviously I can comply with both licenses uness I distribute the work. It should be an interesting problem to hack at, given Wikipedia as documentation. And maybe I'll need a more precise source for the parameters of the moon's rotation.
But, like the Rolling Stones playing a cover of some band whose name I don't remember, I ain't too proud to beg: if any of you can tell me how to find the location on the surface of the Earth (... how shall I specify this accurately ...) through which passes a displacement vector from the center of the earth to the center of the moon, I'm dying to know.
But yeah, I'm doing the C coding, which I know I can hack out, first.
Oh, and gaim is now "Pidgin". So s/gaim/Pidgin/g, k?
