Interop Impressions and Pix · We worked from noon till six Mon­day, and from 8:30 till the mid­dle of Tues­day; a lit­tle over twen­ty peo­ple in the room. I got the Ape talk­ing to a few and failed with a cou­ple of oth­er­s, but in those cas­es the prob­lems were im­ple­men­ta­tion glitch­es, not the pro­to­col. Sur­pris­es? I saw a cou­ple of servers that didn’t ac­cept Atom en­tries, just var­i­ous kinds of me­dia ob­ject­s. OK, I guess. Pleas­ant sur­pris­es: get­ting pret­ty well com­plete in­ter­op­er­a­tion with (on al­most the first try) Nikunj Mehta’s code and (after a bit of work) Kevin Beyer’s and James Snell’s.

One of Everything · On the In­ter­net I mean. And ac­tu­al­ly that should be at least one. In con­nec­tion with a project I’m work­ing on, I was think­ing about mon­key nois­es and, what do you know, wel­come to the world of Pri­mate Vo­cal­iza­tions. My fave is Dian Fossey’s go­ril­la hoot­ing and Colobus abyssini­cus: Male roar.
FotD: April 16 Tulips · Yel­low tulips with scar­let sprin­kles at the peak of their youth­ful beau­ty. I had two shots that I liked and was ag­o­niz­ing about which to run but hey, this is dig­i­tal, bits is free, right?
