I'll be speaking at DroidCon NYC with David Reiss (of LinearAlloc hack fame https://www.facebook.com/notes/facebook-engineering/under-the-hood-dalvik-patch-for-facebook-for-android/10151345597798920) about "Building Android at Ludicrous Speed with Buck." Let me know if you'll be there!

Today I made Appendix B of my book available online for free: enjoy!

Google Calendar definitely failed to email me notifications for some annual recurring events this morning (birthdays). Anyone else seeing this?

New demo that uses TypeScript to generate JavaScript that can be compiled by the Closure Compiler in Advanced mode: http://blog.bolinfest.com/2013/01/generating-google-closure-javascript.html

Also, could someone revert the new Google+ UI on iPhone? Trying to read my stream is about as comfortable as walking through Times Square.

What my mom wanted most for Mother's Day: for me to collect all the old computers in the house so she could recycle them. +Simson Garfinkel should be proud, as I removed all of the hard drives, which will be disposed of separately for security purposes. In the spirit of useable security, it would have been nice if mid-90s case designers made it easier to remove the hard drive! (There are six machines but only five hard drives because I'm pretty sure that late-90s Michael Bolin removed one of to try to get the data off of it when migrating to a new machine.)

I'm pretty sure that the Dell on the lower right (first family computer after our Apple IIc) was a 486 with 2MB of RAM that originally ran Windows 3.1. We added the CD ROM, sound blaster card, and another 2MB of RAM later. I think my favorite game was Links 386 (4 floppies!), and it was annoying when we upgraded to Windows 95 because you had to switch to "DOS mode" in order to play it.
