From the sublime to the absurd: the module I wrote today for cabinet accepts reports of "I pooped" and, based on a weighted average, figures out when your next bowel movement will be.
Sometimes, just because you CAN write code, doesn't mean you SHOULD write code.
This is genius.
And I disagree. If you can, you should.
I was recently contemplating doing a survey of my novel and charting the incidence of masturbation, romance, lesbian sex, and Christian imagery - so that I could send my chart to potential publishers in lieu of a plot summary.
It's not often that I do something which would brand me as an egoist.
At least, it's not very often I do it *and* mean it. In a way, this is an instance of that. There's so many other things I could have done in that 20m and I'd like to think that at least some of them would've been more meaningful than a chuckle.
That's more or less what I mean by 'should' do.
Still, I suppose everyone has a Serrano streak in them. 8)
It seems like the chart could probably be done with the aid of a program though! 8D
Does the code take sleep schedule and/or time of day into account?
For the moment it's a generic algorithm. When it starts getting more data, I can start making specific adjustments to it, but I think it's likely OK for now.
What are you talking about? I can think of no better use for code than predicting your next BM!
Hey, if you want to join the fun, I'm going to create an email gateway to c3 8) Every time you poop, you can send an email!
