Now I'm now repeating myself
  Created - 2017/02/04 21:06:13+0000

So I recently posted an article I had floating around as a draft for a while. I't been a while since I last posted and it seemed like a quick way to release something. I made a few edits and posted. Turn's out I had already posted it a few months earlier . Oh well. The new versions's better, now I'm now repeating myself.

Did you notice?

Did you notice? Recently I have been posting content more frequently. I have been trying to release something every couple of weeks. I've heard the suggestion that you should write something once a week. I'm not goingto do that. To come up with an idea, flesh it and write it up, it's not something I'm going to try to squeeze into a week. Don't try to follow other peoples advice too closely.

I'll get to it

I'll get to it, I'll get to it. There always seems more for me to do. I've been planning to polish my website for about six months, make it shiny with CSS and JavaScript. I have't done this because there always seems to be something else. Implementing Rated executor or more recently Yet another event framework for Java. My website is not the only thing I want to get to. There is the model checker I did for my Master's dissertation, I want to do more on that. This means there is always something else of me to do. I'll get to it all eventually.

I like Indian food

I like Indian food. I like the spices and the flavours. What I really like are the starters and sides. Curry, korma, madras are good. More than the sauces and the pilau rice though I like the starter, sides and sundries. Onion bhajis, samosas, nans, peshwari nans, sag aloo, bombay potatoes, popadoms, pickles and chutney. Theses are the things I really like. This may be why I like the Masala Zone chain. They do Thalis which although they don't have peshwari nans are a collection of small portions of varied dishes. All of these are good and all of them are worth having. It's the portion size and variety that I like. The nutritional value they like to talk about doesn't matter very much to me and you should know they are eager to explain all of this to you before you order. I like Indian food.

Debian 7

I've recently upgraded to Debian 7 Wheezy. So shiny. With it came Gnome 3 which isn't as bad as some say. It is a change from what I was used to there are plenty of extensions that make it more familiar. Some of these extensions are to do simple things, like display the Power Off option by default. Without this extension status menu displays a Suspend button that become Power Off when you hold down the alt key. Some of the decisions taken by the Gnome team are weird like getting rid of the Start Menu, no wait that's Microsoft. Adding shell extensions is easy and smooth and they can get you around decision you don't like with out waiting for a .1 release. I hadn't expected to get Gnome 3 though I'd heard of the changes when Ubuntu switched to it. The main reason I decided to upgrade was Maven. The maven package in Squeeze was Maven 2.x with Wheezy I have gone up to 3.x which a plugin I tried to add recently insist on. There are a few bugs, not found anything debilitating yet. Wheezy was released in May and Squeeze is a couple of years old now. As Wheezy is updated I expected it to get more stable. For now I will keep getting used to the changes. Going back is not something I would consider.
