Whee bugfixing....

C     Program to write LJ posts
      PROGRAM LJPOST
      CHARACTER*2048 POST
      CALL THNKUP(POST)
      WRITE(*,*) POST
      END
Or something. This past week and a half, I've been working on trying to debug a bit of program (2146 lines, 63kb, for those curious about such) and get it working so that I can use it to get the data I need for the paper I need to write by the end of the month.

Anyhow, I found about a half-dozen bugs today -- rather a better rate of finding them than I'd been having in the week prior -- which improved its operation a fair bit, but it's still buggy. Sigh.

I think I go home and sleep now, and resume battle in the morning.

Completely random quiz....

I'm wondering how long it takes for the right answer to get posted to this.... There is, in fact, a book that starts with the sentence "It was a dark and stormy night." What book is it?
