Programming concepts revisited

Although working in the tomato packing shed gives me enough wages to pay accommodation and food, it's not good enough to me to save some money for next traveling to other city. Main reason is 'cause that the harvest season doesn't really start off so there are many day-offs now, thay said as if I care about the situation. Well, I should've cared. In short, I'm blocked here.

However, as a worker doing repeatedly dumb packing of the job, I have to figure out some way to cheer myself up or I'll be bored to death. Some colleagues listen to iPod while working. I don't wanna do the same 'cause the working environment is noisy so you have to volume up very high. That definitely does damage to the ears. Sometimes the speed of incoming tomatoes is so fast such that the only thing I could do is just filtering out bad ones. You know, I became a robot at that time. Sometimes the speed is slow, I got some time to think.

Let me briefly describe the content of my tomato-packing job. I know that one picture worths one thousand words. But it takes so much cash to get an internet computer with uploading-photo capability so I just can afford to use the free computers provided by local library. Although there are USB slots, but they don't work. I'd tried many times to hack the library computers. But somehow they have a specially customized Windows OS, the only thing I could do with the computers is just browsing. Thanks god I can log in Blogger or you can't
see my blogs for a long time. (Well, maybe you don't care at all :P) The internet cafe here charg

--Oops! I was caught using emailing this morning. That's why this blog published as half-baked.--
--The library secretary caught me log onto blogger and there was a string "gmail.com" right there on the top-right cornor of the window. And she said emailing must be charged $2.60 per half hour. Required me to log out immediately and asked me to leave. Well, although the system I was using is a blog system instead an email system. I thought that's still againt the policy of the library. Faint.--
--So, now, I have no place to go with free internet+blog. And that means, you mates won't see my next blog for a loooooooooooooooooooooong time. Cheers.--


The internet cafe here charges internet access $5 for one hour. That means, almost two meals. Holy banana. Holy tomato.

Well, this blog was supposed to something about the correlations between programming concepts and tomato packing. But with that said(I was caught!), I can't afford to write something online costing me so much. So I hands up.

My current status:
I am re-reading the essays of Stevey(old and new) which are the only worth reading in my laptop. I regret that I didn't copy/download more online articles into my MacBook.
I bought a sudoku book. But the first one sudoku puzzle is so hard that I can't solve it by my brain and hands. So I decided to write a program to solve it for me. Still in progress. I think this is a good exercise because I know nothing about sudoku. So I have to build the know-how from ground up. Yap.
I am practicing cooking, as you know.
Maybe I will play chess with the New Zealand or German guys.
Watch TV drama program: Friends.
Speak to the Ireland girl, I still have problems with her Irish tone.

Thanks mates. You won't see me soon so go other place else.
