I just haven’t had it in me to go bonkers posting war links…
War kills people… news channels have no room for this one truth. And to me that makes the whole medium feel like a lie.

Our tools are VS Studio 2003 Final Beta, TortoiseCVS for version control and NUnit for unit testing.
C# Refactory is a nice refactoring add-in for VS Studio. I bought it and like it a lot – but unfortunately it doesn’t work with VS Studio 2003 yet.
C# may not be Smalltalk – I have shipped real projects in both Smalltalk and Python and hate type casts and stupid compile time stuff as much as anyone. But for what we do right now it works out. Reflection is our twisted friend.
As usual I began Friday with two hours of Lomi-Lomi massage. I do this on a regular basis – it’s fun, helps me stay sane and feels really good.
Massage is a language you learn by listening and by doing. Right now, I do intense listening. Eventually I’ll speak it myself – I began training shiatsu a few years ago and plan to be licensed some day.
Well, I’ll definitely write more later… but now I’m off to do my swimming, before the pool gets crowded.
Ben Hammersley has collected background info on the Kurds in Iraq. My personal expectation is for USA to sell the Kurds short in a clumsy and bloody fashion – but I do hope to be wrong.
