I spent a good part of the weekend writing and rewriting docs for LectroTest. I'm now up to about 25 pages. Finally, all of the pieces of the system are documented in a non-sucky fashion. (If you're curious or want to help me proofread: LectroTestDocs.pdf. If there is anything that is confusing or awkward, let me know.)
You may know that I love the Haskell
programming language and regularly extol the many virtues of the
automatic testing system. But did you know that I so missed
QuickCheck when writing Perl code that I spent a few days last week
writing a Perl version called LectroTest?
And did you know that the LectroTest mascot is an adorable yet
angry robot with scary mechanical claws? (Inside).
Tonight, I used up the last slice of bread on a tomato sandwich.
Being a modern renaissance man, I decided to bake a couple of
replacement loaves rather than run to the store. Now it's 2:01 AM,
I'm dead tired, and the bread is still rising. What was I thinking?
On a related note, inside you'll find more fun analysis of IMDB's
movie database and amazingly insightful charts and graphs that
will make you more powerful than you can possibly imagine
(if your imagination is sufficiently limited). Seriously,
the charts are cool. Take a peek.
Also, I saw Hero last
night. (No spoilers within.)
Being a country boy, last night I went to the Washington County Agricultural
Fair, where I attended the Fair's ultimate event: a demolition
derby. I had never been to one before, and – wow! –
was I surprised. I expected it to be somewhat boring, but it was a
Recall my previous diary entry, in which I presented
a (contrived) probability puzzle about the readership of HuSi. In a
poll, twenty-two votes were cast among five choices. Of the five, the
fifth was chosen more frequently than the others – eight times.
Can we conclude that this choice's popularity is unlikely to be caused
by chance alone and therefore caused by something else (HuSi users
being, at least in part, cynical bastards)?
In my previous diary entry The
Return of Jake, I shared the triumphant tale of Jake The
Construction Worker. Also, I posted a poll in which I invited you,
dear readers of HuSi, to vote on what you thought Jake would do with
his winnings from the out-of-court settlement with his employer.
Of the twenty-two votes cast among the five options provided, a surprising
eight votes were cast for the last option, which had been reserved
"for cynical bastards only." If we consider the twenty-two votes to be
representative of the population of HuSi users, can we reasonably say that the population has a significant cynical-bastard component? That is, can we say that the "cynical" votes are unlikely to be explained by chance alone?
