I haven't been sleeping especially well here. I think maybe it's too much caffeine. So, I'm going to lower my intake for awhile and see if that helps.

I've been doing more environment setup work at Amazon, and helping another developer with perl. It's been going fairly well, and has been rather busy in a strange way.

I also have been working on CAKE, getting the documentation into a state I'm happier with. After I do that, I will start working on implementation a structure around AssertionMessages that should make CAKE usable by other programmer types. It'll still need a lot of work before it's usable by non-programmers.

I would really like to have something interesting and usable by hacker types to present at CodeCon this year. I hope my proposal is accepted.

I'm trying to decide on things to do in Seattle. I've been doing lots of wandering, and getting a feel for how things are layed out. Seattle feels more compact than Minneapolis. It's rather squeezed between bodies of water, so that makes some sense. Buildings are lots taller here as a matter of course. I've been figuring out why various areas of the city have the reputations they do.

I should go do some picture taking to satisfy my friends in Minneapolis. In particular rosencrantz319. :-)

My friends from Seattle were amazed at how large the Twin Cities feel when you drive around.

I met one of your friends from here, one who will be leaving Amazon shortly. I was rather amused to discover that he'd gone to slacker bowling with you as I was on a plane over Montana.

I think Jer's last day was friday. Glad you two had a chance to meet. I believe Amazon will be a less interesting place to work without him.

Seattle in winter

(Link)

I've only been to Seattle once before, and that was during the summer. It was terribly rainy as I had gone to go camping in the Olympic National Rainforest up there....



I've been given the option of driving over that way with my last summer's roommate, Steve, who is Canadian and is driving back home in the middle of December. He's not sure if he wants to cut north in Minnesota, Montana, or in Washington. I haven't yet decided if I'm going with him even....but it might be interesting to see the coast in winter as I don't think I've ever done that before.
