this is a sculpture of a simian. a curious novelty. it sits idly while watching the tourists pass by. when we were there, there were only a few. i thought it was funny to look at, having that expression of amusement returned. it was alive. i was sure if winter hasnt set in, i will be able to converse with it.
successfully converted my code which used MFC CStrings into STL strings. it wasnt easy. it took a good part of two days to finish. it made the code look primitive, almost visceral. im wondering what the original designers of STL were thinking.
heard from roger and magic. magic got promoted as manager in shanghai. they are still working for ABC. we became friends (sort of) when they visited eufaula one time and i offered to give them a ride. at one point they were my lunch and shopping buddies. i was greatful and sorry to see them leave. which was probably a good thing too because several months later, it was my turn.
