Number three

As promised yesterday, here’s a picture of reader number three on his wedding day a little more than a year ago. Delightful, no?

They went home this morning. We got a call a little bit ago to tell us they arrived safely. I’m still sad to have them gone. I’m also so sleepy I can hardly keep my eyes open. Spent the whole day that way. I’m going to bed in a few minutes, that’s for sure.

I took a little time this evening to try to organize my scouting stuff – I’ve been feeling like it’s spread pretty much all over the house and I can’t ever find anything when I need it. Hopefully, that will improve with tonight’s little bit of organization.

I’ve been studying C++ and generally enjoying the textbook, but I don’t think I have any applications inside me waiting to come out right now. I’m also looking into how to create Dashboard widgets now. Maybe a brilliant idea along that line will come to me.

I listened to a podcast today about a service called Pandora. It’s a website that creates a streaming “radio station” based on your preferences. You enter an artist or a song you like, and it picks others it thinks you will like too. It’s based on a quite advanced algorithm that takes into account about 400 variables for each song. I played with it a little bit after I got home from work tonight and must say it pretty much works as advertised. The user interface is slick too. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Tomorrow’s picture: Aunt Sandy and the sea lion. See you then.
