Random thoughts of a sleep-deprived mind…

Monday, January 28th, 2008

Couldn’t sleep last night, went to bed around 0100 hours (a little late, but I figured I’d manage with 5 hours worth of sleep, as I always try to trick myself) and just tossed and turned until I finally gave up trying to sleep around 0200, and sat down in front of the computer again, watched a movie… or two… while researching some on Lisp and Perl.

This continued until about 0500 when I finally started to feel so sleepy that I surely couldn’t stay awake even if I wanted to (which I didn’t). Oh how wrong I was. A quarter to six I was beginning to drift out of consciousness and into dreamland, but then I realized the futility and just lay there awaiting the alarm from my cellphone.

Great way to start a new day… really… not. So now I’m in school feeling pretty shitty, tired, queasy and freezing. So why would I want to share with you any thought currently in my mind? Good question, I sure as frack don’t have an answer (btw, may the Lords of Cobol make the writers strike end soon so that we can have season 4), but for what it’s worth (probably not much) here goes:

On a more serious note (not that Python, Perl, Erlang, Firefox, sshfs and rsync isn’t serious business) it gladdens my heart to see that more and more governments around the world are embracing the Open Document Format. Hopefully this more than anything will put an end to the madness that is Microsoft OOXML.
