The SF public transport saga continues: Bought a Clipper Muni/BART combined monthly pass, but only the Muni part of it works and I still get charged for BART -- how can I either get it to work for BART or get the difference refunded?

Went up to Berkeley today and had a tour of the campus (sadly, my camera's battery was flat), followed by a fun night of food, drink and games at +Martin Maas place :-) Good times!

Oh, C++ virtual inheritance, my debugging nemesis, how I loathe thee.

Wrote the world's most inefficient MapReduce job today: used 60 machines to process 600kb of data! :-)

SF Muni adventures, episode #65: Bus driver has to ask passengers for directions.

Living on the US west coast leads to me continuing to discover the 2-5am programme of various European radio stations. Actually pretty decent - no ads at all at that time! :)

If you would like to help my research into personal data storage (on your computer or online), please participate in this study: http://www-dyn.cl.cam.ac.uk/~ms705/survey/
(Only takes 5-10 minutes, may do some good for the future & makes me very happy!)

Had almost forgotten how tedious it is to get access to papers when not on a university network. Thank heavens for Shibboleth! (And the SRCF for its remote desktop service that allows me to get to PDFs behind tricky redirections.)

On the deck, in bright sunshine, looking over the bay and downtown San Francisco. For once, SF feels like it's actually in California! :) (panorama generated using the awesome Hugin tool)
