199 years ago today, the first performance of Ludwig van Beethoven's last piano concerto — No. 5 in E-flat major, but popularly known as the "Emperor Concerto" — premiered.
I'm listening to the piano concerto now, as I write this. The music is familiar, yet very enjoyable.
I don't know what I like more, the delightful play with harmonies in the performance, or the posh (but entirely correct) usage of the plural form concerti in the Wikipedia article. I have a weak spot for musician lingo.
Today I tackled the Hitomi tests. In all honesty, it doesn't appear like they've ever been tackled that way before. Which is odd, because there's a lot of them.
I did one first pass over the test files making sure they at least compiled. The I did another pass
skipping things. Now the whole
t/hitomi folder shows PASS for, I think, the first time ever.
In retrospect, I'm not sure why I spent so much time porting test files and then didn't make sure that they ran properly. That doesn't square at all with my current TDD practices. On the other hand,
t/hitomi/05-input.t gave the impression of being TDD'd on at least up until test 13. Still, it's odd by my current standards.
Routes, Astaire and Squerl would benefit from similar treatment. I think those will be easier than Hitomi.
