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…
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
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

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

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 …
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
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 …
