YAY!

A snow day in college! Who would have thunk it?
Who wants to join my elaborate celabratory party tonight in its honor?
I'm thinking snowballs in Central Park or some such...
(It is a bit depressing; I'm missing my favorite classes tonight. Sadness, sadness.)
But SNOWBALLS!

Snowballs in Central Park? H'm..., for me it'smore like a cozy restaurant, great company and some fantastic food and drinks. But whatever. Have fun!

Yeah, I changed it to partying with The Sorceress. But apparently there is a snowball fight on Bennett at 2PM today! Would that I could make it...

I'm about to walk across central park. If I get hit by a snowball, I WILL retaliate! :-)

I've been hardly daring to hope about a beautiful snow day like this since December, and here it is!! It's gorgeous.

Have fun! Wish I could go out and have a snowball fight with someone, but I think the only other creature who's up for that in my area is my dog.

I got invites for a snowball fight at a park in Brooklyn from people in the Brooklyn College Hillel.

Way back in '96, we had a bit of snow that almost canceled the last day of finals at both Stern and YU. They gave them because so many people were stuck in the dorms anyway, but anyone who went home for Shabbos couldn't make it back because no train the runs above ground anywhere along its route was running, and it was illegal to drive in NY. They had to take the finals after vacation.

We watched people cross-country ski down 34th street. And climbed out the windows on the nineteenth floor of Brookdale and made snow angels on the roof. Good times.

Hope you're enjoying. And when did people start scheduling snowball fight?

Well, If you have ever considered writing some script to automate those things that you do several times each day, then you have a great and easy way to automate the entir e process. It comes without saying that a few imacros and firefox add-ons will automate all actions connected to a browser (Mozilla). If you want to automate your system as such, then you may need some other script, straightforward commands will automate your system. Even a beginner will automate things using a simple software called as sikuli all you need to do is to inform Sikuli what to do by giving some screenshots and straightforward commands.
A GUI will be used with Sikuli. Sikuli is an open siurce scripting application that will use a mix of easy commands like click, type, wait and so on. There's no internal API support, it just searches the screen for the image in the screenshot-that implies that you'll use it for anything. There's literally no limit on how you employ it to automate things.
This is too good to be true, but if you watch the subsequent video, you'll come to know that this can be really easy. If you visit their home page, you get a lot of tutorials and support; it will be a cake walk even for beginners.
