"Otherwise I look bad. I know it shouldn’t matter, but it does."
"It’s all right, Lauren. That’s… that’s how I feel about everything."

The C Programming Language, by Brian W Kernighan & Dennis M Ritchie & HP Lovecraft

December 26, 2009

Seen on JWZ: exactly what it says on the tin.

Exercise 4-13. Write a function reverse(s) which reverses the string s by turning the mind inside out, converting madness into reality and opening the door to allow the Old Ones to creep forth once more from their sunken crypt beyond time.

Repository of All Human Knowledge – In Anime

December 26, 2009

With regard to the ever-continuing debate about Wikipedia and its validity as a source of information, this volley from JWZ notes the prevalence of the "in anime" section.

Our work here will not be complete until every Wikipedia page contains an "In Anime" sub-section.

Note that both of the cited links are to fairly old versions of the pages (both of which have the In Anime section removed in the current version). Nevertheless, it’s fascinating to watch how the idea of Wikipedia evolves, even as Wikipedia continues to be a popular resource for many.
