    Enter The Collector 

    My abebooks wishlist finally found me an affordable autographed copy of Strugatsky brothers book:

    I also have a copy of “Space Apprentice” with a pasted in autograph of the younger brother. It’s interesting how similar their autographs are.

    Sunset as Seen From the Surface of Sol III 

    Taking pictures of sunsets is so damn easy these days. Just bracket like crazy, and voila. Instant purdiness.
    A sunset can make everything look pretty. Even the ugly ass twin brother of the building in which I live. Oooh, how I hate that building. I am thinking of finding out who the architect was and harassing that person over the phone (or in some other way).

    I am thinking about writing a science fiction series about a materialistic spaceship pilot. There would be a story about him going on a quest to find the most comfortable spaceship chair, the best spacesuit in the universe, the most perfect cereal bowl. One mission would be to obtain a room in a skyscraper on a planet that wobbles in orbit in such a way that the people in that skyscraper can watch constant sunsets and sunrises over a glittering dead ocean.

    Imaginary Dragon is A Square Root of a Negative Dragon 

    I’ve been fooling around with Amazon.com SDK today. I’ve always wanted to write a wishlist manager. I tried to export my wishlist out, but not all records are being returned. Looks like it’s a known bug according to their bulletin board. Ok, I guess I’ll have to extract it page by page (it seems to be working a page at a time).

    At the same time I discovered a silly bug in the way wishlist results are displayed. To reproduce” modify “registry.page-number” part of the query string in the url, to jump a few pages forward. Then press “previous button” : numbering of items will turn to negative numbers. Yeah, pagination is usually tricky to code right. But if even I can do it, so should Amazon programmers.

    Regular shopping cart pagination uses “pg” token, and works ok with this manual jump.

    Right now I am in the process of consolidating all of my information in a hyperlinked map. The tool I am using is called Treepad. But it’s late, I’ll write more about that later. Good night.
