Ratings in iTunes

Further to the last post on this subject, I have a new smart playlist. It’s everything with a rating of one or less despite having five or more plays. It’s called “Stuff I really don’t like.” I reckon by the time it has enough material in it to fill a DVD-R, I’m going to start

Bit quiet, huh? I guess the reason for that is that there just aren’t enough hours in the day. Too many people to meet up with, too much stuff to do, too much coffee to drink, too many books to read, too much work to keep up with. And there it is.

Aww!

Poor Nelefa.org is getting a little abandoned these days. With most of my burbling being done on Facebook, there’s little point in posting here unless I have something specific to say. Except for today, of course, when I have absolutely nothing to say but am posting here anyway. Well, I SAY I have nothing to

World of Warcraft (in pseudocode)

So I was gabbing with Shen on MSN and the subject of Warcraft came up. As it does. So I thought I’d have a stab of writing it in pseudocode. So here it is. while(1){ if($n00b){ acceptLols(); print(“GIEF GOLD PLX KTHXBAI”); } else { if($pvp){ spawn(); die(); acceptLols(); } else { grindMindlessly( $bodyPart, $mob );

A page from my notebook

A mole of me!

I’ve just made an awesome discovery! I was having a surf and came across this page detailing the chemical composition of the human body broken down by element. This is an awesome, awesome thing because armed with that page, knowledge of my own body mass, and a periodic table, I can calculate my own atomic

Gab gab gab

So, I’m back at work after a particularly restful holiday. Restful for everything except my gob, that is. I’ve spent an unholy amount of time sitting in Starbucks gabbing, sitting in the living room gabbing (until the sun came up!), sitting in the garden gabbing, and just generally, you know, gabbing. Am I gabbed out?

Writing

I haven’t been. I’ve let my novel slip horribly due to all the stupid but necessary wrangles that have been going on in my life. But things are calming down a little now. An excerpt of the first chapter was read out last night, and chapter nine is underway. Just need to keep the pace
