Memcached Story Part 5

Memcached Story Part 5
Thursday — July 7th, 2011


Added a new sidebar for easier navigation. Remember you can also click the comic to advance to the next page.

Discipline is a tough thing to maintain. I’ve been trying to send Alex a comic, learn a mandarin lesson, work out, read a few articles, say my millionaire vow, reach out to a friend, code some javascript, and draw, once a day.

Maybe I should cut down on what I’m doing.

I’m totally going to post at least 150 words per post from now on.

For the comic, I wanted a scene where the server was on it’s back, getting ripped apart by the sysadmin. But Alex didn’t know what I was talking about, and refused to draw it.

Going to do some site work this week, such as adding comments to the front page, also going to add some game mechanic to the site to keep people around longer. Perhaps a form with an mmorpg element to it.


Not Exactly Refused

Ripping apart can be quite grizzly. I think it’s gotten a bit better now, but computer parts are surprisingly sharp, and it’s not uncommon to walk away bleeding.

Incidentally, a friend and fellow cow-orker wanted to mention about this play that’s gonna happen. I believe it’s part of the Toronto Fringe Festival. There’s a short trailer on their site.

Jungle 1: I Spy” runs 7pm at Central Technical School today through until 17th (excluding Monday).  Think “live action James Bond”.  May contain awesome.

“This exciting new site-specific piece follows the life of a spy, as imagined by the people that find his dead body. Through a combination of physical theatre, dance, text, and clown the audience experiences the chases, escapes, love, betrayal, and eventual demise of our hero, John Smith. As each family member adds their piece to the story we learn more about them, their secrets and lies, and how they are transformed by the participation in a communal story.”

I suspect he’s secretly a hipster, like when before everyone thought hipsters were cool. You wouldn’t understand.
