Updated my software page a little.

Ender's Shadow is good so far.

For the time being, I'm still linking to books on Amazon, but I'd like to set up some kind of simple database and script that'd have an entry for any book I mention here, and spit out a page with a review of the book (if I wrote one), and links to stuff like e-texts, pages devoted to the book, and entries in online bookstore catalogs.

Guess that can go on my list of of stuff to eventually do with Perl. Provided it wouldn't be too ambitious, or require a great deal of maintenance. I'm discovering that lazy as I am, anything that requires continuous upkeep is probably a bad idea.

Bearnes' First Principle of Web Authorship: "Don't matter what it is, you're gonna be too lazy to update it."

Or something like that.

It's been kind of a slow week.

Wow... Judging by that little counter script, people actually read this. Several of them. How'd that ever happen?

My dad and I rented Payback tonight. Not what I'd call a great movie, but a lot of fun to watch.

I bought Ender's Shadow (in hardcover) today. I'm only about 30 pages in, but I'll write something review-like up soon as I finish it.

Wow, do I ever need sleep. I'll pick this up again in the morning.
