Long week/weekend

2005-05-24 01:30:32.059404+00 by meuon 8 comments

Wasn't very productive this last week, but had fun playing Tourist in both Chattaboogie and Washington DC. - While Chattanooga downtown is being revitalized once again and the new riverfront is looking world class, DC is tired, worn, and just not looking like the center of the free world, home of the brave.. etc.. I'm going to have to sort and organize a LOT of recent pics better, but here is a smattering: A butterfly from the new addition to the Tennessee Aquarium, The Albert Einstein Memorial in DC, and the hinge to the East Gate at the White House which impressed me with it's size and construction. My guess: it'd stop anything less than a tank.

Huh. Wacky. Don't know what's going on, I'll try to hack on it a bit tomorrow.

I both love and hate DC. As far as urban design goes, I love it. Easy access to great public transportation. Lots of museums and green space. Very cosmopolitan populace in the right places.

On the darker side, DC is a rotten stink-hole that makes me embarrassed to be called an American. DC should be the crown jewel of our country - a showplace for the rest of the world. Instead it has ridiculously high crime. It tends to be very dirty. And nobody who works in DC lives in DC and vice-versa... DC needs a mayor like Bob Corker. At least his corruption and vice cleans up downtown instead of adding to the problems like DC's prior mayor...

Grrr... It's a bug in HTML::Entities::decode_entities. Fixed by making a Flutterby only copy that doesn't allow for unterminated entities.

Ouch, a real bug, eh? I could have just changed my end.. you can say: 'Don't do that'.

Problem is that somewhere in the expanded code set there's an ℑ entity. HTML::Entities::decode_entities(...) was interpreting that as an entity despite the lack of trailing semi-colon.

Especially in web based applications, users shouldn't have to work around applications, if only because such things might expose security concerns.

You do realize that taking that picture of a hinge prob put you on yet another watch list
