it really does hurt your brain
Download: the inevitability of bugs
This song started out sort of as a joke. I was thinking I could just whip it out and have some fun with it, but as I got going, I began thinking about the broader implications, and ended up taking the whole thing a bit more seriously. Well, not too seriously, but enough so to make it a 'real' song somehow.
'Debugging' is, of course, a term used by computer geeks to describe the act of fixing their code. I often think that my life is a constant debugging process; trying stuff, seeing what works, fixing bad brain code, you know, that sort of thing. It's just the way it is. I am a work in progress, and I always will be.
So all the voice clips in this song come from the masses of wonderful people who agreed to help me test and debug my online recording system. There are plenty of 'testing 1..2..3..'s, but, as you'll notice, people had a little more fun than that at times. This whole process was somewhat painful, but it is working great now and I'm using it on the sidebar of my blog, as you can see. Give it a try sometime!
Do you know how to code?
not really, though I used to be not so bad at C way back in college
Why does the chorus start out being all wacko and screwed up and then gradually turn into something simple and easily sung by a group?
you figure it out.
who was in your sing-along?
people at Rob's house
do you wish they were more drunk?
Does your brain hurt right now?
out_ns = new NetStream(client_nc);
in_ns = new NetStream(client_nc);
Is that really a harpsichord?
I always thought you were cool, but I guess not.
you learn something every day
