Mainframe Haiku

So I’ve been a bit out-of-it lately. The project I’m working on right now has few intermediate goals by which I can judge my progress — either I get it working, or I don’t. I’m not making the progress I’d like to make, so it’s meant extra-long nights.
On the upside, I made the decision to run a 5k race on the 24th. My fastest time for a 5k is 21:09, but that was after a couple months of training. And the paramedics had to hook me up to oxygen afterwards. I haven’t gone jogging — just for jogging’s sake — for at least a year, maybe a year and half, so if I get within 2 minutes of that time, I’ll be more than happy. I think the first time I ran a 5k (I’ve run three, none of them recent), I was taking it easy and aiming for the 28 minute mark. I ended up coming in around 24:30, and I wasn’t winded at all. There was a huge difference in effort required just to cut off those 3 minutes, so I’m thinking it might be a while before I crack the 20-minute barrier.
The CD above is from experimental electronic music producer Charles Paul. I got to see him spin on resonance back when I was in Victoria over Christmas. Unfortunately it’s one big track, so it’s not easy to share, but think‘s cliqhop idm stream. Bleepy, melodic stuff, pretty good actually.
In other news: my friend Jim just launched his new website, Extrametrical, and I think he’s done a bang-up job. Plus, he said a few kind words about me, which is pretty nice, too. 🙂 Check it out if you have a chance, I think you’ll like it.
