    the prince guy being evil is as disappointing as it was predictable

    like it doesn't really match his behavior up until then

    and it was nice to have a story where the girl's sorta realizing that her fiancee is a nice guy but maybe she rushed into this all too fast, without giving her an easy get-out-of-love free card

    The plot of Frozen feels like it was partly just supposed to be a statement about Disney's changing values since their early films.

    Also the plot of frozen was rewritten several times well into production. Elsa was originally the villain. I believe the overly convincing nice act was 50% deliberate, 50% vestige.

    *sigh*

    I've turned up to the COMP1927 tutorial, and not the lab because CSE apparently don't think marking these things distinctly is important.

    This is mind-numbingly boring.

    Meanwhile, I'm still feeling kind of screwed on my maths course.

    Frozen definitely feels like a movie that's gone through some drafts

    Like as a general statement about where they are with princesses, it's great

    and there's individual sequences which are pretty wonderful and ooooooh man some of that ice and snow animation is just awesome

    But like Elsa's character arc doesn't really make much sense, even for a musical. It's literally like "Oh yeah, love, that's a thing!" all problems solved

    and honestly I really would have preferred it if the prince dude just turned out to be kind of a dick, rather than straight up evil, it really does feel like a bit of a cop-out

    So I don't like it as much as Tangled, but gad dang is it worth watching for the good bits

    A triumph of computer programming. In a lab about the benefits of abstract data types, we jump through a bunch of hoops to avoid using explicit void* pointers and malloc, and instead just hide a type which is actually a pointer to a struct that doesn't look like a pointer, but completely screws up if you malloc to from it.

    I'm mystified by the thought chain which concluded this was simpler then just explaining void pointers.

    EDIT: I mean to be clear, the lab was "store a bunch of ints", and for some reason I'm memcpy'ing into char[] arrays because we have to use some given data type for it.

    1pm - Brother contacts me telling me he's getting 5150'd by the doctor under state law.
    5pm - Psych hospital FINALLY puts effort into contacting us about what's going on. Tells us he can come home in an hour.
    7pm - I call to demand answers of what's going on, am told not to expect a time until he's seen the doctor for the formality.

    It's now almost midnight.

    Ok seriously, why do this?
    typedef struct tag {
      Bool openingTag;
      char tagName[256];
    } *Tag;
    
    typedef Tag Item;
    

    Why do this when you expect people to use "Item" types and fill them with data. It's abstract all right - in the sense that you've abstracted away comprehension.

    Unless he's under 18 and you're his legal guardian

    or you have power of attorney

    the hospital doesn't have to tell you shit

    no matter how many times you demand it

    Well I mean, he needs to be picked up. He originally went to an appointment regarding his hearing, then they carted him across the city. He made it clear that we are his contact point for pickup.

    They better have fed him and at least provide somewhere he can sleep for the night, because this is kind of bullshit. He was clear to come home barring a formality hours and hours ago.

    Most emergency psych services departments aren't going to release a patient at midnight, honestly.

    it sucks to not know what's going on, and it sounds like the hospital is pretty disorganized.

    but at this point there's nothing you can do except put your phone's ringer on loud, put it on your nightstand, and try to get some sleep.

    I'm not staying up nor expecting them to call at this point. I'm just throwing my little fit about the state of California having some shit laws / execution of those laws.

    Have I mentioned you have to buy grocery bags from stores in my city? They didn't prohibit particular kinds of bags or offer permanent, keepable bags. They just make you pay for them. Because it'll save the environment somehow.

    HIPPIES.

    FWIW, if you're in Alameda County, he's at John George in San Leandro. It's a comfortable facility - it got renovated about 10 years ago. But it does get really busy because they have to take in all of the mentally ill in crisis in Oakland, and if you've walked down Broadway at night you know that's a lot of crazies.

    It sucks that they can't give you a straight answer. Honestly they'll probably wait until they're discharging him and he's sitting waiting for a ride before they call you.

    at least I've heard that it's comfortable from somebody who has been there

    never been inside of it personally.

    just picked up somebody from there a couple of times
