Collateral

An interesting phenomenon came to my attention today. Perhaps somewhat conspiracy-theory-esq, yet interesting at the same time. It deals with production, destruction, and market valuation. (more…)

Fun with flats and fraud

Filed under: Meta,Personal — cwright @ 3:12 am

My posts have grown more and more infrequent as the wiles of life have started making things increasingly personal and private. Yet recently I’ve had a couple fun experiences that I suppose I could bore you with. 🙂

Congratulation!

(Title intentionally left singular) Every now and then, a person experiences a day that stands apart from the rest. While trekking to San Francisco for WWDC, I have had to opportunity to have such a day. And I’m only in Denver (and will be for at least the next 4 hours!). (more…)

Warning: WWDC imminent

Filed under: Personal,Programming — cwright @ 2:22 am

The day of reckoning is nigh at hand. Sunday night I depart for California, the land of San Francisco, with smokris, for adventures untold. What lies in store for us? Only time will tell…. (more…)

surreptitious

Filed under: Personal,Programming — cwright @ 12:09 am

The past few weeks have been largely under the radar, with a lot going on with software, finance, and Alias. I always find it funny when people start approaching me in real life to ask whether or not things are going ok since I haven’t written anything in N weeks (where N is an integer greater than 0). Fear not, I am ok 🙂 (more…)

Alias

Filed under: Personal — cwright @ 1:16 pm

New and often risque ways to read things I’ve written periodically come to my attention. One such recent discovery was the nickname of one known as “The Couchmate” or simply “couchmate.” (more…)

`Then you should say what you mean,’ the March Hare went on.
`I do,’ Alice hastily replied; `at least–at least I mean what I say–that’s the same thing, you know.’
`Not the same thing a bit!’ said the Hatter. `You might just as well say that “I see what I eat” is the same thing as “I eat what I see”!’
`You might just as well say,’ added the March Hare, `that “I like what I get” is the same thing as “I get what I like”!’

Truth, as they say, is stranger than fiction. And today has been no exception. (more…)

Purpose of Meaning

Filed under: Personal — cwright @ 12:47 am

I’ve always been a meticulous preserver. Even as a small child, I could never bring myself to take apart Lego creations I had made (or, ones friends had made, for that matter) because of the risk of not being able to restore them. As a software engineer, such habits still carry on in the form of archives, backups, and documentation that describe ways certain things are accomplished. (more…)

Je-ne-sais-quoi

Filed under: Personal — cwright @ 6:40 pm

For better or worse, I find ‘innocence’ to be exceptionally endearing. Except when it’s me that’s naive, then I just feel off-guard and foolish. Much like the past week. Walking into such events is always leaves me a bit wiser though, and worst-case, I come out with some fun stories to tell. At this point, I’m just at the first half though… (more…)
