I wasn't sure what to have for dinner earlier. I had some chicken to cook, some left-over Sharwood's tikka masala sauce and some mushrooms. I decided to experiment and try making those ingredients into a burger. A chicken & mushroom tikka masala burger. It was yummy.

I've nearly finished my [nodepicker==node/3102==A%20Survey%20of%20Software%20Watermarking%20by%20Register%20Allocation%20(for%20Java%20Bytecode)==survey%20paper%20of%20register%20allocation%20based%20watermarking%20techniques] which describes all the existing techniques and their flaws. I am awaiting a recent paper via an inter-library loan which I need to read, understand and then add to my survey. My next tasks will be surveying all the other [nodepicker==node/3083==Types%20of%20Software%20Watermarking==families%20of%20static%20software%20watermarking%20techniques] and extending [nodepicker==node/36==An%20Evaluation%20of%20Static%20Java%20Bytecode%20Watermarks==my%20survey%20of%20static%20Java%20bytecode%20watermarking]. I've come up with a road-map for the rest of my PhD studies, which also includes extending my [nodepicker==node/8==An%20Evaluation%20of%20Current%20Java%20Bytecode%20Decompilers==Java%20bytecode%20decompiler%20evaluation] which was presented at the SCAM2009 conference. Here's my plan in graph form:
I think I'll look at my decompiler paper tomorrow. I haven't really looked at it for almost a year. I need to fix it up, turn it into a journal paper and also an MPhil transfer report chapter.
Here's some things I didn't know yesterday:
- The average number of mouse clicks per day for an average employee is 564 (warning - pdf).
- Data can be hidden in DNA and shredded documents (warning - pdfs).
- You can live without a stomach.
- Egypt has a place called Valley of the Whales (Wadi Al-Hitan) where many ancient whale fossils are found, including the bizarre Basilosaurus Isis which has useless limbs left-over from it's land-dwelling ancestors. Strangely, customs officials are currently refusing re-entry of a fossil to the country without payment of $40,000.
