Freedom! (almost)

So, only one more day left in the week, and I've only got two classes. Then it's the week-end! Woo!

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'll keep …

Another day, another dollar

Hello again invisible readers. Just thought I'd relate all of the terribly interesting things that have been happening lately…

  • Chemistry test today. Could have been much worse. Trust me. Quantum chemistry can get hairy, but it didn't.
  • 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.
  • Also watched yesterday's Stargate SG-1 …

Beryl 0.1999.1, and Other News of Note

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 tomorrow that I ought to be studying …

Hello

The way I count it, this is my third attempt at keeping a web log. Fourth if you count that website I made for reviewing PDAs, which I mostly used to chit-chat. So you, kind reader, will have to forgive me if I seem a little bit disillusioned about the entire process. Nonetheless, here I am. I thought that I'd again join the ranks of the "bloggers".

So, after that little introduction, perhaps you want to know who I am and why you should read this blog? The short answer is that you probably shouldn't; it promises to be boring …

Geek Code

I figured that I might as well post my Geek Code block here, since I'm all bored-like.

So, what's going on with the site, you ask? Well, I updated phpbb and changed that around a bit. Cool new ranks. And I'm contemplating rewriting the site in ruby, since I made my hosters install mod_ruby. If I do, then it'll be really cool. But time will tell on that particular project. Until then, enjoy browsing my vast informational resources. :-)
