I got the boomerang!

So I downloaded the original “The Legend of Zelda” to Sara’s Wii using the the Wii Virtual Console.  I’ve never actually played this one before.  So I’m pretty excited, because I’m a big fan of the Zelda games that I have played.   So far it’s a lot tougher than you would expect, mostly because [...]

Change is coming

Hi ya'll. A fairly big change is coming to this blog. Pretty soon. Probably later today. The reason, I'm preemptively telling you this, is for those of you that happen to follow this blog via the feed (hi Kim): the feed address will be changing slightly. Therefore once the change happens, you'll have to update [...]

The Beaver State

… or the Union State, the Sunset State, or Pacific Wonderland. Whatever you want to call it, I'm there. Specifically, I'm in the City of Roses, Bridgetown, Little Beirut, Stumptown, or PDX. I'm moved in with Sara. Trying to find a job and settle in. It's super rainy here right now. In fact it's record [...]

“What, am I to wake up suddenly and then enroll at the local college, earn me a degree and I could work weekends? If I've worked real hard I could mow your back yard” … “You get your Ph.D How happy you will be When you get a job at Wendy's And are honored with [...]

The luck of the Irish ran out yesterday

So I was not going to enter any March Madness bracket pools this year because I knew the model I used to pick teams needed updating. But then I had an idea on how to update it, and I found last years code, so I had very little rewrite. Ok, here’s last year’s post about [...]

Just like going to Utah or Colorado!

It seems most people hate this “Spring forward” time change. I love daylight savings. I just have so much more energy when the sun stays up later. I played some tennis today in some suddenly fantastic Berkeley weather. We finished around 5:30 and there was still so much sunlight! I got a bunch of work [...]

Over a 100 pages!

I'm waiting for some code to run. It's in these little tiny windows of time that I have to myself that I start thinking of all my hobbies that are being neglected. I haven't played guitar as much. I hardly see any movies anymore. And I haven't touched this website. I have lots of I [...]

The semicolon is sexy; it has made my thesis sexier

I know it’s been a very long time since I’ve posted on this thing. I’ve been working on my thesis, visiting Sara, and not a whole lot else. Anyway, I came across this article today via Kim: How to use a semicolon Enjoy!

California Dreamin'

Ok, so it turns out, that's not how the other bowls are picked at all. Basically the bowls get to pick who they want in their designated order. So let's say Oregon beats Oregon State, and USC beats Arizona. That means that Oregon State, Cal, Stanford, and USC are all 6-3 (given the other assumptions [...]
