New Toy

I am now the proud owner of one of these:

Now to figure it out and set it up...

Testing SyntaxHighlight 2.0

This is a test of my new syntax highlighter.

This should be Python:

class A(object):

def a_func(arg):
return A()

This should be some Java code:

* A doc string
public static Object aMethod(int arg) {
Object a = new Object();
return a;

And finally XML:

<element attribute="value">
<nested attribute="value">

That is all.

Just a quick update since I have not posted in so long. What have I been up to?

Well, I am currently on my second week this year of unpaid leave that my company has forced us to take. I'm not sure how I feel about that. I guess it is better than losing my job, but I would obviously rather be working and making money. This week is March Break here for the kids, so between keeping them busy and pet-sitting my brother's golden retriever Charlie while they are in Florida, I haven't really accomplished anything yet. It is only Tuesday, so I guess there is still hope.

Things I want to personally accomplish this week include:

  • Getting some work done on the next batch of guitar amps that Todd and I are designing.

  • Play around with and learn JavaScript.

Other things on the TODO list:

  • Become a rock star.

  • Solve the world's energy problems.

  • Come up with a unified theory of everything.

I figure if I at least solve the last item, that *should* take care of the second-last one, and perhaps the rest will come naturally. For now, I'm off to make some juicy burgers for dinner. We have to enjoy this beautiful, 14 degree weather while we have it!
