big-endian and little-endian

Amazon has for a long time had the “Add to Wishlist” feature (want to see mine?). The “Add to Wedding Registry” was just really weird. Especially since what I hit was the Speed Racer (Limited Edition). Though the possibility of marrying someone that would not be adverse to putting Anime on a wedding registry will have to remain in the back of my mind as a possibility. Eh, at the rate I am going, I probably should not be too demanding, huh?

 


OMG, computer terminology is geeky….

The terms big-endian and little-endian are derived from the Lilliputians of Gulliver’s Travels, whose major political issue was whether soft-boiled eggs should be opened on the big side or the little side. Likewise, the big-/little-endian computer debate has much more to do with political issues than technological merits.
big-endian

Naming the styles of byte order big-endian and little-endian is an allusion to a Jonathan Swift novel. WTF? Was this supposed to be satire by alluding to a satirist’s novel?

I am going to lunch now….

 


Need some time management software. Something in which I can put all of my deadlines (hard and soft) and get a good graphical view of how I am coming up on a deadline. Of course, it will have to have very persistent reminders that cannot be easily ignored.

Of wait, I am getting over a 70 hour work week… pffft.

I’m impressed… summerbabe knows an Ezra. I’ve never met another Ezra except online.

    And of course, there’s the band Better than Ezra.

    Sorry.  Hope I’m not giving you a complex.

  • 4/11/2003 5:35 PM by AlanaNightingale: You are the only Ezra I have ever met…..
  • 4/12/2003 3:11 AM by goddessfourwinds: I think one Ezra is enough…and I am sure Oenone would agree with me…more than enough!  Question…what was the meaning to your response about her dream???  Curiosity is killing this cat!  Love ya!

Figment of the Internet Superhighway

Got this when I got into work?

you out there again or just a figment of the internet superhighway?

Definitely a figment of the Information Superhighway. Ignore me and I’ll go away like a little mosquito which narrowly missed your windshield while you cruise a 60 mph.

Of course, if you make the mistake of staying too still, then I’ll buzz your ear and suck the life out of you. Frankly, it sustains me.

One of the reasons I left my Pita that it got just too popular for the guy to keep it robust. Think Xanga is experiencing growing pains while the guys attempt to raise the money to pay for expanding.
