Frustrated Database

Someone make an XQuery (namespace) IDE plugin for Eclipse. Shit, google just provided one... Update: I just realized how horrible the XQuery specification is implemented in any sort of off-the-shelf packages. We used QuiP (Note the use of caP1+Als) for a CSCI 585:Databases homework assignment. It sucked, especially since the syntax we learned in class and documented in the notes was the 04 APR 2005 Specification while on the QuiP site they have this gem:

"The latest XQuery draft was released in May 2003 and though there have been no substantial changes, the syntax supported by the current QuiP implementation must be considered out of date."

Pretty sweet when you're writing software and have to figure out the syntax by trial-and-error.

High Maintenance Filter

"ALL RIGHT LISTNE TO ME. YOU PULL UP WHERE SHE IS, RIGHT. YOU GET OUT OF THE CAR AND LOCK BOTH DOORS. THEN GET OUT OF THE CAR AND YOU WALK OVER TO HER AND BRING HER BCAK TO THE CAR.

TAKE OUT THE KEY OPEN THE DOOR FOR HER AND YOU LET HER GET IN AND THEN CLOSE THE DOOR FOR HER. YOU WALK AROUND THE BACK OF THE CAR AND YOU LOOK THROUGH THE REAR WINDOW. IF SHE DOESNT REACH OVER AND LIFT UP THAT BUTTON SO YOU CAN GET IN,

YOU DUMP HER, YOU DUMP HER FAST."


"just like that?"

"LISTEN TO ME KID, IF SHE DOSENT REACH OVER AND LIFT UP THAT BUTTON SO YOU CAN GET IN, THAT MEANS SHE IS A SELFISH BROAD AND ALL YOURE SEEING IS JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG. YOU DUMP HER, AND YOU DUMP HER FAST."

when 'no' means 'yes'

For those in the know, XCD skin products are like god's gift to aging guys that still want to hit on college girls. Thier 'defender' product has an SPF 15 rating, which means most of the time I dont have to put sunscreen on my face. Thier eye cream stuff supposedly smooths wrinkles and reduces the little puffiness that occurs around the eyes. Pretty crazy stuff.

reading is FUNdamental

I just finished the Schismatrix by Bruce Sterling. I also purchased the movie The Sword of Doom at Fry's Electronics last week, and it is awesome. I also read Perry Bible Fellowship (because it is awesome). I need more animated gifs on this site. I'm thinking maybe some dragons spitting flames.

...and even you can find love...

school emails!=sucks

Also, i have signed up for facebook (note that its www.THEfacebook.com, it seems that www.facebook.com is a link-spamming-search-engine-page-ranker) and since it seems that you can only sign up for the facebook social network if you have a valid .edu email address, everyone i know that will read this probably wont be able to sign up, since we are old dirty men. also, i dont know what its for. if you know, and you know how to get my email address (hint: its not hard [hint2: its my username @ usc.edu]) then email me. also, i am part of 'the cool club' and 'team tom'. i wanted to get into the group 'we wear our collars down', but they wouldnt let me cause that one time i was listening to puffy and had to pop my colla. holla.

tmarthal will be televised

The first order of business is to transpose the contents of my previous blog, located on the USC student web servers here http://www-scf.usc.edu/~marthale/index.html to this blogger.com service. Hopefully I can fiddle with the css formatting to make it somewhat match my old blog.

It was too much of a hassle dealing with the Information Services Division at USC to try and post dynamic html content on thier servers.
