OMG! I get a Boblycat Blog! My life is complete now. I have never had a proper one. What shall I do?! :-D I would probably have to talk about some topic that is interesting for others, too. Well, I had a very funny dream about Fay and I last night. We were in Oslo (apparently not a funny place), but we were having a good time anyways. As I recall we were trying to find books about Goethe. Yeah, really fun!
Most of yesterday was spent framing and hanging up my photographs in the gallery space I'm exhibiting in for the next two months. I've got six Holga photos in the exhibit named "MY Camden". There are two other photographers and a group of 11-12-year-old children from the local school taking part with their photographs. I have to say some of the kids have the best photos on display!
I got invited to take part by the guy who runs the gallery space when I won a photography contest in April this year. I really wanted to go in with the Holga angle as I think the strongest portfolio I have at the moment is with my Holga photographs. Fancy that. I still get stick from SOME photographer friends saying it is not proper photography. Oh well, I think it is and love it. :-)
Who ever thought framing and setting things up for exhibitions would take so LONG! I was exhausted after four hours, but I have to say the set looks lovely and it's in a good spot in the space as well. All I have to do now is give about 2,000 promo cards to people (who?) and write a little intro about the work and Holga in general. All by this afternoon. Opening night tomorrow!
Let's see if I can get some photos tomorrow and post them here. Whee! First I have to find out how I get pictures in my blog here. Anyone? Anyone?

The new boblycat system is now up and running. Please report problems. :)
This is the villa where Stig and I hang out whilst in the mountains. It is kinda basic, no running water and only a bucket for a toilet, but it's our home away from home. I am planning on adding a few feminine touches, maybe a window or two so we can look out and a bit of weatherproofing too. Other than that it is just lovely as it is. :)
Eelco Visser and myself have a paper at the sixth international Workshop on Reduction Strategies in Rewriting and Programming (WRS'06), coming up next week.
Some transformations and many analyses on programs are either difficult or unnatural to express using terms. In particular, analyses that involve type contexts, call- or control flow graphs are not easily captured in term rewriting systems. In this paper, we describe an extension to the System S term rewriting system that adds references. We show how references are used for graph rewriting, how we can express more transformations with graph-like structures using only local matching, and how references give a representation that is more natural for structures that are inherently graph-like. Furthermore, we discuss trade-offs of this extension, such as changed traversal termination and unexpected impact of reference rebinding.
