    Haha, Loved the ‘0’ in HellWeek…wrap around in some weird type ?

  2. Barton says:

    Yeah, I definitely think that’s caused by integer overflow, probably like this:

    Definitely more complex than the “Kill something and eat it” dinosaur calendar that appeared once in The Far Side. Those were happier times, indeed (EVEN if you were the prey).

    The thing that scares me most is the fact that the HellWeek part makes absolutely sense.

    The Patches part doesn’t, but I never did patches, only development.

    I leave for Bangalore on Friday Aug 13, 2010 and my revised calender reads:

    0 * (- infinity)

    Revisiting this page long after the fact, I started wondering — how does this interact with the phases of the moon? This becomes important when debugging device drivers, because hardware is known to be affected by these things (I think that if computer hardware existed in Diskworld, you’d find it among the undead in Überwald). You have to know which days to pack a revolver with silver bullet, and/or holy water.
