A three day power outage, plus an unrelated internet outage, plus juggling three different projects at work has kept me from blogging this week. Booooo.
I'd make up for lost time now, but I'd rather go curl up in bed and pay down some REM debt. Or maybe read Scott Pilgrim's Finest Hour, which I've had in my possession for six days (!) and still haven't cracked open yet. No big deal, just been waiting slightly impatiently for this to come out for a year and a half or so.
In the mean time, you all go and take a look at the pretty visualizations of sort algorithms at sortvis.org. There are some ones with pretty colors you can fool around with, but I rather prefer these static black and white jobies. These things would actually make an extremely geeky twist on the barbed wire / pseudo "tribal"tattoo some bros get around their arms.
I'm a sucker for algorithm visualizations. For more pretty sort algorithm pictures, I'd direct you to the nearest copy of Sedgewick's Algorithms. Cormen et al's "Big Book o' Algorithms" is probably better over all, but Sedgewick gets the thumbs up for intuitive and pretty pictures.
