As I sit in the VLSI lab waiting to meet with Prof. Harris and the rest of the Clay-Wolkin group, I thought I'd post my Geek Code on this blog. Ya know, just for fun.

Crazy weather...

Posted Sun 18 February 2007 17:24 under category personal

What's the matter with southern California, eh? It was 81 degrees Fahrenheit here yesterday! It's FEBRUARY! The way I understand it, that means snow and ice. At the very least, shouldn't it be cold enough to require long pants? Crazy weather...

My Baby Taylor

Baby Taylor

I almost forgot to mention... I bought a guitar! I was looking for something small and dorm-room-ish and ended up narrowing it down to either a Martin Backpacker, a Little Martin, or a Baby Taylor (of either the mahogany or spruce variety). After playing all three, the Backpacker sounded like it was being played from inside a tin can and the Little Martin sounded like it was underwater. Both Babys sounded absolutely excellent, and I ended up going with the mahogany for its slightly richer tone and great look. So far, it's been treating me pretty well, but I ...

Another day, another dollar

  • Did some more work on CSS/PROFILE today. Eugh. Can't the various people who want to know about my finances (IRS, Department of Education, College Board, Harvey Mudd, Bank of America, etc.) just get together and only make me go through all of this once instead of a million times?
  • Watched yesterday's House today. 'twas awesome, 'nuff said.

Beryl 0.1999.1, and Other News of Note

Posted Tue 13 February 2007 22:25 under category tech

I've just gotten around to upgrading my version of Beryl to the latest svn/prerelease (through the xeffects overlay) and, wow. It's a huge improvement over 0.1.4. Much faster, more stable, and more featureful. I can't get over how awesome tabs are (under the Grouping configuration). I have yet to find something they're useful for, but they're still totally awesome.

In other news, mechanics midterm today. Woo. Well, I suppose it could have been worse.

Okay, that's enough mucking around with the blog I suppose. I've got a chemistry section quiz ...
