 Some of you are reblogging because you think its funny that programmers would talk to ducks. I’m reblogging because I think its funny picturing a programmer explaining their code, realizing what they did when they explain the bad code, then grabbing the strangling the duck while yelling “WHY WAS THE FIX THAT SIMPLE!? AM I GOING BLIND!”

AS A PROGRAMMER I CAN TELL YOU THAT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU FUCKING DO WE HAD TO BAN THE DUCKS FROM MY CLASSES BECAUSE EVERYONE WOULD FLIP THE DUCK OR THROW IT AT A WALL OR SOMETHING WHEN THEY FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM IN THEIR CODE

so that’s the function of a rubber duck

Heavenly library

Today I visited the medieval library at Merton College, Oxford as a guest of the Fellow Librarian. It is the UK’s oldest library that was designed to be used by scholars, and it has been functioning as such since its construction in the 1370s. You enter the library at the ground level through a massive door. Going up the stairs you reach the upper floor, where the books are stored. It is sensational to walk among the rows of book cases in the half-lit room. Their shelves are filled with hundreds of early-modern books (many still fitted in their original bindings), which are patiently waiting until someone will touch them again. Heavy benches hoovering over wooden floors are a reminder that this room was once filled with scholars leaning over their books, trying to catch the last light of the day. In the middle of the library a heavy 13th-century book chest is found, next to a small collection of shiny 14th-century astrolabes. What a heavenly place.

Pics (my own): library, book cases, consultation bench, book chest (13th century), stained-glass window (medieval), and entrance. More information about the library on Merton College’s website (here) and also here; more on Merton College, which dates from the 13th-century, here.

Tanto Dagger

  • Dated: Koto era
  • Measurements: 11 3/4 inches overall, 7 inch blade

The dagger has a blade fitted with a golden collar, showing a deeply carved bonshi horimono on the right side of the blade and a spearhead pattern on the left. The signature on the tang attributes the blade to “Kanemitsu”, in the later portion of the Koto era.

The black lacquer panels feature golden floral accents are present on the sides of the hilt and sheath, with the edges and tips, along with the tsuba, decorated with raised cherry blossoms with golden accents.

The mekugi is topped with a pair of 3/4 inch long golden butterflies, and a three dimensional gold accented silver flower arrangement serves as a suspension band on the back edge. The dagger has a 6 inch long two-piece kogai with 5 carved symbols on the front of each side, and a two symbol signature on the back with a golden three symbol signature inside the slot.

Sidenotes:

  1. Swords/blades made during the Heian period (794-1185) through the late Muromachi Era (1573-1599) are called Koto, and are classified in terms of the Gokaden, the five schools that developed in the provinces of Yamashiro, Yamato, Bizen, Soshu, and Mino.
  2. During the Koto period, the features of the jigane varied significantly because of the different materials used in each province. Swords made during this period can be recognized by the forging style, often down to the specific smith.
