it's a horrible day in the universe... a solar explosion would make it worse [Feb. 27th, 2003|04:58 am]
Roy Janik
It's odd, but my livejournal has pretty much become a projects log rather than a personal journal. I talk about radio, BUH projects, my cooking plans, concertina quests, and so forth... but rarely about relationships, moods, and other such things that will be important to me when I look back later. I used to put all the personal stuff into private entries, but lately I haven't even bothered to do that. I'm not sure why.

Tonight I'm pulling an all-nighter at work, something I haven't done in a while. This makes me happy for some reason, although I'm sure I'll pay for it in a few hours. "meh". I've learned a valuable lesson tonight, and that lesson is that you can't trust the various regular expression libraries that are available for java... gnu.regex, the xerces code, the ibm regex library, and the java 1.4 library all have various problems. I mean, sure, I'm abusing them, but they should be able to at least die gracefully.

Anyhoo, Mr. Rogers died a few hours ago. I never really watched him as a kid, but he always seemed like a nice guy.

oh no, what a sad day in the neighborhood
I:
funny how journals seem to take a weird shape. yours is like a project log, wes is more like a news event log, mine is a list of things that made me laugh. looking back and really seeing how you felt is a lot more rewarding, journal-wise. i'm inspired to make better personal/filtered entries now.

I tend to like the various modes that a journal can take on, because it probably does reflect the state you're in at the time. If it's very project-oriented, it probably means you've been fairly project-oriented. So it really is valuable even in that respect.

that is true, and remembering a specific event and/or action can trigger your memory to recall even more.
