Yay! A good mood!
Not only did we manage to wrap up a really tedious web job today, but this evening I went up town to finish this PIC programming job – and it seems to work! Cool!
Had an interesting chat with the guy I’m working with on the PIC project – he was telling me some rather scary things about Computing in the 60/70s that involved the FBI and the CIA and I was telling him about HAL 2001 (on my mind as the University of Twente’s NOC caught fire today…very sad). We discussed the possibility of a “locksmith gene”: some kids are really into keys and locks, some just don’t care. The former end up as hackers (as opposed to h4c|<3Rzz), the latter don't.
