Quotable Quotes

    goingware, interesting quotes, but the Caesar one may not be as accurate as you first believe. After doing some research, I found an interesting WiKi on this exact quote. I also found someone else who attributes it to William Shakespeare. A search of the complete works of Shakespeare returns nothing.

    While on the subject, here’s a few other interesting ones:

    George F. Kennan, 1987. Professor Emeritus at the Institute for Advanced Study and former US Ambassador to the Soviet Union.

    “Were the Soviet Union to sink tomorrow under the waters of the ocean, the American military-industrial establishment would have to go on, substantially unchanged, until some other adversary could be invented. Anything else would be an unacceptable shock to the American economy.”

    Former Sec’y of State Henry Kissinger speaking at Evian, France, May 21, 1992 Bilderburgers meeting.

    It is then that all peoples of the world will plead with world leaders to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well being granted to them by their world government.”

    Adolph Hitler, My New World Order, Proclamation to the German Nation at Berlin, February 1, 1933

    “The National Government will regard it as its first and foremost duty to revive in the nation the spirit of unity and cooperation. It will preserve and defend those basic principles on which our nation has been built. It regards Christianity as the foundation of our national morality, and the family as the basis of national life.”

The Day’s Events

    I woke up at 3:30am this morning, and started working right away. I got more done before 5:30am today than I’ve did all day yesterday with the neighbors playing basketball with bowling balls in every room.

    Today; one word: Perl

    Possible developer/sysadmin job in… Iceland.

    Mother’s birthdays coming up (there are now two).

Handera Palm Emulator

    Finally got the Handera ROM images working (thanks to Jes and dgibson for their assistance re: -gstabs in POSE_CXXFLAGS). Turns out having the Handera skins in /usr/share/pose/Skins didn’t work like the rest of the POSE emulations, they had to be in ~/Skins.

    Handera’s online registration system is completely inept, and still hasn’t responded to my request. It’s supposed to be minutes, it’s been days now. Their website is disgusting too, looks like it was designed by a class of 5th graders. I decided to yank the rom from the REAL device with pi-getrom, and use dd to bite off the first 32k of smallrom.

    dd if=handera330.rom bs=1 skip=32768 of=out.rom

    All this for some screenshots of OUR application in THEIR device.

Lots of cool stuff coming. Just finishing up on one of the tools now, may have to pull an all-nighter on this one, I don’t want to put it down until it’s done. Can’t get distracted.

Employment

    Status: None, 301 days. I wish I could find a paying job.
