Hacker's Diary

A rough account of what I did with Emacs recently.

June 19
Z-Wave network appears to have settled down, albeit not 100% the way I'd expected. I've installed two repeaters - one's an actual smart switch - but I think the steel framing in the house extension is messing with the radio propagation.

I think I watched Top Secret in the cinema, although given I'd have been 10 or 11 maybe I'm misremembering. In any case, it's not quite Airplane! levels of fun, but it does stick to the classic ZAZ recipe of "if you didn't like that joke there'll be another one along in a minute". And the background gags - like Nick, in the restaurant, being told he'll need to wear a jacket and tie, and they can provide one, and then the scene switches to Ms. Flammond in the foreground, and over her shoulder you can see Nick stripped to his underwear being measured up for a suit which a hotel staffer proceeds to stitch on a machine for him. It's not brilliant, but it is a lighthearted bit of fun.

In the last 30 minutes, my work mac has kernel panicked and my personal mac has had Terminal spontaneously die (taking all its open windows with it). Is this something triggered by WWDC to persuade me I need a new Mac?
