Friday madness

Dahnerts County Park

Lots of new geocaches showed up in the listings today. So I went and did 4 of those that weren't too far away. Only got FTF on one though. China Syndrome 2 and Aaron Burr Drank Here Too!!! were in Ramsey. The latter was at the Old Stone House, which was an 18th-century tavern where Aaron Burr reputedly stopped for liquid refreshment. In the evening, I went for Dahnerts County Park Cache in Garfield (the town, not the lasagna-eating cat) and Hackensack River Park Beach behind Riverside Square Mall in Hackensack.

I posted my improved Twitter Vim script to the Vim script archive. The original author is not using the Twitter Vim script any more since he has switched to another text editor. (the one that resembles an operating system :) ) I discussed the hand-off with him and the way we did this is the last version of his script will be the pre-release version of the new script. Then I create a branch off of the script and I'll post updates to my page from now on. I wish the Vim script archive allowed a script to have multiple authors. That would make the hand-off easier.

I also posted K-Meleon macros for FriendFeed, Profilactic, and Google Bookmarks. I've been busy.

From thefridayfive:

1. What type of food do you most like to eat?
So hard to choose... I know! Let's combine everything: Chocolate-coated fried fish with curry.

2. What type of food do you most like to cook?
The only thing I've been cooking recently that wasn't done in a microwave oven is roti prata with split pea soup. I really should use curry instead of split pea soup but it's a bother.

3. What ingredient could you not live without?

4. What do you never let in your kitchen?
An elephant. Because it won't fit!

5. What is your favorite drink?
Wawa green tea iced tea.

From fridayfiver:

1. What have you sold?
A domain name. Also, a bunch of stocks last year.

2. What do you want to change?
The new $5 bill so that it doesn't have that big purple number.

3. What does your answering machine / voice mail message say?
I don't have an answering machine or voice mail.

4. Where did you go to school?
Several places in the old country, then New York City.

5. Friday fill-in:
If you'd like to reach me, ______.
...leave me alone

From Five on Friday:

What are your thoughts on the following food fads? Are they diet gospel or modern quackery? Do you find yourself following any of them?
1. 100 calories
Oh, come on. Get a kitchen scale and weigh that portion of food. No need to pay a premium. Oh, and I found that I needed several of those 100-calorie packs to be satisfied, which defeats the point.

2. Low Carb/Sugar Free
Don't care.

3. Low Fat/Fat Free
Don't care.

4. Trans-Fat Free
Don't care.

5. Whole Grain
Don't care.
