7 pm – 9 pm: Work on the 40 Mb spreadsheet that mangles the data from the patterns into the code that loads the data onto the Picaxe. There are four unevenly asynch counters here to do the mangling. Code from spreadsheet not working.
9 pm: Give up, shower, food, paper, wow.
10.30: Go to bed
10.35: Realise I can concat that chunk and that chunk, making spreadsheet one third the size
10.40: Realise I can autogenerate two of the four counters
10.37: No wait, three of the four. Woo!
10.44: Realise I can put that and that together to generate the constants table as well
10.47: You know, this would be better as a PERL script
10.48: Or maybe Ruby
10.49: I should rewrite the entire system in LISP
10.50: Realise I can’t concat that chunk at all, making entire set of brainwaves irrelevant. Bother.
10.51: Get kicked by
