Had a good time at tea last night - now that it is morning. Working on stuff for Fight Club. Need to send e-mail to people (2) from my creative writing class who were interested in going. Had a really good talk with Gunn, too - and now I need to stay alert until I drive Special Guest to his appointment at 10. Expect more posting, because I'm avoiding work.

--- At what point does an mp3 player, on random, decide that it has hit the end? Well, I won't know til I crack the source code open, I guess.

Red potatoes, with salsa and yogurt, are really good. That is all

If you have time, take a look at this Palladium story, which lends a great comment about a very possible future.

Which mp3 player? The sensible thing to do is generate a permutation of the playlist and play that once. I believe Winamp does something like that, and if you also have it on repeat, there is a setting you can tweak to control how much the permutation varies each time.

It's xmms - the big Linux player. I haven't found any options to tweak randomness, so maybe it's hard-coded. Eh - worth a source code glance anyways.
