No geek stuff. Well, okay, a little geek stuff.

My friend Dave has been working on a new Mandelbrot generator, the eventual goal of which is a continuous-zoom generator which “zooms in” the way you expect things to, rather than refreshing all at once. This is insanely ambitious, but it’s been very interesting watching the development.

We went out for dinner, and afterwards, we decided to head back to try his Mandelbrot program on the big industrial Mac I use for art and such… His wife said “sure, let’s hang out for a bit, but no more geek stuff”. Dave and I made kicked-puppy faces. I said “Oh, come on, we want to see how that looks on the dual G4”. She said “okay, just a little geek stuff”.

Dave married well.
