Hey All,

Haven’t updated in a while…I know…..but who follows this thing anyways? Noone….

It’s a Saturday evening, didn’t really do any studing at all today…which is a VERY bad thing since I did horrible on most all of my midterms….*sigh*

Instead today I did the following:

  • Upgraded the fileserver kernel, which failed miserably so I reverted back
  • Found some old pictures on a dusty SD card and uploaded them to my gallery, which now contains 3,198 items! w00t
  • Worked on SCO2.0 a little bit…I have to rewrite that bad boy pretty much from the ground up, but oh well…the first time around was a HUGE learning experience….cakephp FTW!

Yeah, nothing overly exciting….and definately nothing pertaining to school *sigh* I’ll get to that….soon….

Works on 2 postulates: Knowledge is Power; Time is Money
Power = Work/Time
Knowledge is Power, therefore Knowledge = Work/Time
Time is Money, therefore Knowledge = Work/Money
Rearrange: Money = Work/Knowledge
Therefore as Knowledge goes to zero, money goes to infinity
Hence why managers always make more than engineers

Hey All,

Well I thought this was DEFINATELY blog worthy…..thanks to my friends over at LifeHacker I stumbled accross this gem of an idea: Click Me!

Well being the cunning engineer that I am, I decided to put my own spin on the idea…

It feels pretty solid, I’ve jiggled it around, pulled it down, and swayed it back and forth…I’m happy with the result…..couple that with a little bit of Synergy action and we have ourselves a winner!

All the pics available here

Until next time….l8rz

Hey All,

So it’s been a month or so since I last updated….my how time flies…..been a busy last few weeks. Engineering has been kicking my ass up and down the block with no apparent signs of letting up. Hopefully I can get all my work finished up during the week so I can head home this weekend. Planning to goto knotts scary farm with some friends and spend some time with Mom as it’s her b-day.

On a side note, I finally got the new pipe for my motorcycle. I love it….it’s so quiet! (yeah….you read that right…) When i’m on the freeway I hear the wind and tire’s over the exhaust now, that’s awesome! With that I can ride it around more freely and not worry about getting busted for a noise voilation or something of that nature.

I did notice a slight (ever so slight) decrease in performance with the new pipe, but I think I can live with that given the significant decrease in sound. I went on a test ride to break it in and I loved it. Sadly one of my clostest riding spots got closed down (Refugio fire road). Most likely due to the fire that was raging in those parts during the summer. So I had to make my way over to Paradise/Lower Oso. I should be putting up GPS maps and a ride report soon (just have to figure out how to download the data in linux)

Until Next time….

Well this was the first weekend of the school year, it was interesting. Didn’t do anything, just slept all day. One of Jareds’ friends came up for the weekend, it was Jareds B-day. (Happy B-Day!) I’d have to say it was one of my more unproductive weekends….oh well i’m sure there will be plenty of those to go around throughout the quarter.

As of last friday we were also blessed with a free gift from Esther (thanks a bunch!). A working PS2 (slim), rockband drumset, and 1 rockband guitar. Jared had lots of fun with that. Unfortunately I’m totally rockbanded out…..I think I just played it WAAAAY too much at the end of last year, it no longer really appeals to me. Which is not to say i’ve lost my skill, it’s just not “fun” like it used to be. Oh well….growing up I guess….

Another revalation occured to me whilst talking to my dad today…..the next time I go home i’ll be 21….holy crap time flies! I have yet to think of what i’m going to do for my 21st, but that’s still 2 months away and therefore much too far for me to schedule out to.

Until next time….l8rz!
