DO COME FROM (69)
0x7D3 December 0x11:
A valid statement in Intercal.
Tasks for beforenextweek:
Learn enough Scheme to add a fairly trivial feature to batchgimp.
(which is a bunch of perl programs that write scheme programs to
control gimp. Which'll be fun, as that means Lluzhionne will be
able to do Gimp filters soonish...)
Requisite Discoveries: OK, so I guess I'm *not* the only person who
thought 'condition data data' would be easier on the parser than
'data condition data'.
Going out, one thinks. Will one need one's purse? No? Then leave it home.
Eight blocks out, one passes a box containing a brokenwinged avatar of what

Rearranging Coils. Stuff all the Energy Rearranging Coils into one's pockets
and go onward.
Go a block further than you had originally planned after endpoint, no point
in mind. The coils interact with the forces to produce a steady downward
vectorpressure. And finding, found, a pair of computers that had been thrown

use it to take the metal plate off the modem's arse and bend that around to
make a less-awkward jabby screwturner.
Of course, when I finally do get the whole mess off, I find the coils have
filled all the pocketspace. (Unless I want my pants falling off from gravitic
excess, at least.).
