Emacs in Harvard Square [30 May 2006|02:17am]

Update: baughj's picture of this is much better. As is this one.

Had to stop and attempt to take a photo of this on the way to catching the last bus out of Harvard Square tonight.

Several (four I think) very large outdoor monitors on the information booth next to the Out of Town News were showing something odd. Kind of like your typical Windows-crashed screen that we see in public places (like airports -- eek!) all the time. Except, these screens were showing Emacs!

Somebody is apparently starting this (now crashed) video application from an Emacs *Shell* buffer! I'm impressed. Now if they can just fix that Windows part.

This is definitely the largest Emacs buffer I've seen.

Wasp [30 May 2006|07:57pm]

Dammit, there's a wasp in my apartment right now. A big one, like the size of my thumb. I have idea how it got in, but I hope it doesn't have any friends. I can't convince it to leave. It's rather large and unpredictable to tackle in hand-to-hand combat and of course I'd rather avoid that.
