On to other things

After spending four hours or so working on my hackfest entry, I was less than optimistic. My entry had yet to even be compiled on the test machines, and it still had huge areas of code that were completely unimplemented. When I went into the common room at St Mary's, Nick from OzLabs recognised me and helpfully mentioned that someone else not only had their code completely running but was in the process of optimising it. I promptly resigned.

I say "helpfully" sincerely there. It is a bit of a pity that my ideas won't see the light of day this hackfest, and that I won't be in the running to win whatever prizes they might offer. But since I don't have a snowball's chance in a furnace of winning anyway that's hardly a real disappointment. And I can go to bed with a clear head and prepare for my lightning talk and the Irish Set Dancing and mixing I plan to do at the Google party, which realistically are much higher priorities.

I do hope that we get to see the winning solutions, though...
