One man's journey from infinity to nothingness

Well, the April Sniffles seem to have hit the social circle.

This past weekend, walking around GreenLake...um lake I had Aiden on my shoulders. He would routinely sneeze into my hair.

Of course all around me the dominoes were beginning to fall: 1_wolfsong had it Friday on... jnanacandra started showing it Sunday. vixenesque93 and I started showing on Tuesday.

And here I am... down for the count.

On the upside... my brain has had it's moments of functionality. I made a great stride in a personal project at about 2am this morning (while neither sleeping nor TMI'ing in the bathroom)

I can now (mostly) convert ANSEL files to UTF-8. Mostly because I need to add the last 24 combining marks to the hash table. But the code works.

Amusingly, Unless you've heard me talk about this in person... it's damned unlikely you have any idea what I'm talking about or why I'd want to do that. Granted... if you're curious you could always lookup ANSEL.

Or it is that Grand Canyon/Indian brave photo guy

American National Standard for Extended Latin Alphabet Coded Character Set for Bibliographic Use, is a character set used in text encoding ...

Hope you feel better soon Frater.

Re: Or it is that Grand Canyon/Indian brave photo guy

Yup the precursor to Unicode. It's used throughout Genealogy documents.

Oh my goodness, again? I'm sorry you guys, that's really no good at all. Maybe it's time to pass out facemasks at the parties.
