I took a couple of weeks off from work, so I did not get much done over the past two weeks.
At my company, “vacations” is now “PTO”: paid time off. I have noticed a few people I know at other companies who also use this terminology. When did “vacation” get replaced with a corporate term?
Anyway, I did go to the local Processing meetup. I did not stay the whole time. I noticed I did not have my wallet, so I left early to go look for it. It turns out I just left it at home.
I did a bit with Simply Scheme. I am now on chapter 6. I am wondering if/when I will get the “Lisp enlightenment” that will make me better in all things CS. It looks like there are things you can do in Scheme and Lisp that are just impossible in other languages. We shall see.
I did spend some time on the Groovy Email Server. I am keeping track of the ip addresses and host names of all incoming requests. I might be able to put this to good use someday.
