Nikola is Python 2 1/2 ready

On my free time, lunch hours, and such I have been tweak­ing Niko­la, my stat­ic site gen­er­a­tor to make it python 3 friend­ly. Well, I some­what-ac­ci­den­tal­ly-my-­dog-­made-me-­do-it may have com­mit­ted a lot of that in­to mas­ter.

So, right now, things may be some­what bro­ken on python2 and some­what work­ing a lit­tle on python3.

In any case, feel free to try it out, and let me know what to fix.

My Life as a Mad Scientist

My son fin­ished kinder, so they had a spe­cial cel­e­bra­tion, a grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mo­ny where they gave the kids a medal, a diplo­ma, they sang a song, that kind of thing. But this school has a tra­di­tion. Par­ents al­ways give their kids a sur­prise present at the end of kinder.

In this case, we did a play. With al­most ev­ery par­ent act­ing, singing, play­ing mu­sic, jug­gling, and more. My role? Mad sci­en­tist. I had 4 lines, I fun­bled one, but hey, you can't de­ny I got the look nailed, man.

Yes, those are black­light light-up eye­glass­es. Yes they are as an­noy­ing to ev­ery­one else as you would imag­ine.

Easy Solutions to Easy Problems

A few days ago my son went to a kid's bar­ber­shop where they do things like play Scooby-­Doo in a Playsta­tion while they get a hair­cut. He liked it so much that he de­cid­ed to take mat­ters in his own hand­s. With scis­sors.

Dad­dy, I may have cut some hair.

But you know what? Easy prob­lems have easy so­lu­tion­s. And I have a hair clip­per.

Son, I may have cut some hair too.

A Game of Thrones

Cover for A Game of Thrones

Review:

I had read this and the sec­ond book at some point in the 90s in a (now I re­al­ize) dread­ful span­ish trans­la­tion.

The HBO se­ries made me want to reread it, be­cause I could not be­lieve the piece of crap I re­mem­bered was the ba­sis for such a great show.

Well, read­ing the orig­i­nal (cheap 4-­book kin­dle bundle, yay!), it's very good, four stars.
