MMM 442

Prep for the certification exam went so-so yesterday. Took the practice exam so I know where my weak spots are so I’ll be studying those more this week. I’m not sure if the hardest part is that I never do most of this crap in daily work, or that I really just don’t give a shit. I hate wasting my educational effort on ephemera. It’s just a program API and configuration, entirely specialized and utterly worthless in any other context. Not in a “but professor, when are we going to use co-sets or need to know isomorphisms to the Viergruppe?” sense, but really, really useless unless you’re doing this exact thing with this exact release of the software.

Two Days ‘Till Tool Thursday

Although not their first album, their popularity started with this song:

MMM: Anticipation

Since one of the more popular current theories is that Jesus (i.e. our Lord and Savior, the second person of the Blessed Trinity, Iēsus Nazarēnus, Rēx Iūdaeōrum) was actually the just a collective hallucination by some sort of Judean mushroom cult (aka “Jesus was a mushroom!”, a variation on the equally ludicrous “stoned ape” theory of the invention of symbolic thought), please join me for some Advent/Christmas Eve music.  It’s thematic ‘n’ stuff.
