Merge my files, baby

Just got finished merging all the code that I wrote last week with all the code that Eric wrote last week, and I have to say: FileMerge on the mac is one SEXY application. Wow!

Not only is it incredibly useful, and not only does it do exactly what you need it to, the interface is both intuitive and gorgeous! I totally love the swoopy okudagram change markers. And boy howdy, did it make the process about ten times faster and easier than it would have been otherwise.

Keep it up, Apple, and I may well switch. (Well, someday when I have a pile of money.)

Believable Futures

After I made the comment in zalena's journal: "I loathe dystopic fiction. I'm much more interested in science fiction that extrapolates a world that is a place I could imagine inhabiting.", she requested that I recommend some that fits those criteria. I figured I would make a post of it. So I'm sitting here in the bedroom, and I'm just going to look over my shelves and comment on some of the books there.

So that's a very particular slice through the books that I like. Maybe you'll find something new you like.
