Quarter’s almost over, so hopefully I’ll be able to post more soon.
I’ve been living in a pink house since 2007. Well no more! I didn’t move - I painted my house the other day. Now I live in a brown house! The awesomest part is I only spent about $40 and it only took us maybe six hours? Just the better part of the afternoon.
Sometimes in MatLab you’ll have a class, and you want to have a function or method in that class that modifies an instance variable in some way. But if you code your class like this:
Here’s a quick little PHP login script I wrote for my school club web page’s back-end. Feel free to use it yourself. I’d like a little credit though :)
Yeah, this isn’t one of those awesome religion or political posts I promised yesterday, but at least it’s something…
Ok, it’s been a while since I posted, so I thought I’d just throw this up:
I thought this was just awesome. Remember the Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for the Nintendo 64? Well, it’s just gotten an HD makeover. Sadly, it’s not the folks over at Nintendo that did this, it’s just a hack. Which means if you want to play it in HD, you’ll have to, well, download it…
It’s been a while since I posted something, so I thought I’d throw this up:
This is just awesome. I got an internship at SOCHE - the Southwest Ohio Council for Higher Education. I will actually be working at the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.
At the start of the quarter, I found out that instead of charging by the credit hour, my school charges the same rate for twelve to eighteen credit hours. Since I was only taking fourteen credit hours, I decided to take a hiking class. I know, I know, hiking in winter? Yes, it was cold. But I met a few people, had fun, and got some exercise.
From NACS Online:
I’ve been pretty bored this month, and have also decided to take a break from some of my gaming. So I’ve been watching the tv series Stargate: SG-1 on Netflix. Pretty good, I think. It’s surprising that it’s over ten years old (from 1997). I keep wondering to myself why the cars are so old… It’s even weirder when I realize a lot of the kids in the show are my age.
On an earlier blog post, I reported that Google had robotic cars on the road already. Well, the road isn’t the only place robots are starting to take over.
So I’ve been playing this game on Facebook and thought I might post a screenshot of it in action. Then I thought, I could 1-up that and play a video! So here it is:
Robot cars, that is. Google has had its robotic cars travel over 140k miles. For safety, of course, they have an actual driver in the car in case the car doesn’t react correctly.
When I was a kid, my parents would send me to church camp almost every day. At the camp, we did typical campy-type stuff like singing around campfires or listen to stories. Of course, being a church camp, these songs and stories were often biblical and faith-based.
From AOL News:
If you want more evidence of the stupidity of government getting involved in health care and child care, read this:
I haven’t posted in a while (no time travel excuse this time), so I’m going to just post a quick link:
For the ultimate in foreign food and culture, go to the Dayton A World A’Fair. They do it about once a year.
In this era of massive government spending, a huge government deficit, untold amounts of consumer debt, and stories of layoffs after layoffs, some have come to wonder how those who have money achieved their wealth. Those some have come to the conclusion that the evil rich through trickery and deceit.
If you read my previous blog on the economy, you’ll see how I explain recessions as part of the inherent flaw of capitalism. As a recap, it is essentially because business people need to earn more than their customers, and their customers need to make more than the business people. This concept would make one wonder how capitalism works at all.
It might strike you odd that I’m libertarian - that is, I want government as small and harmless as possible - and that my political view is rooted deeply in my faith. You see, I believe God gave us a gift, a gift so very precious that we have created a government to protect it. The government has often mishandled this gift, and so have we. We don’t really deserve this gift, but we have it.
The sky is falling. Everyone’s losing their job. The dollar isn’t worth what it used to be. Everything’s doom and gloom. Yet economists and politicians seem to insist that this is all part of a cycle, which includes recessions, booms, depressions, bull markets, bear markets, and other mumbo jumbo.
We all know that cigarettes and alcohol can be expensive because states will tax the hell out of time. Currently, California has virtually no money, and one politician has come up with a solution: tax recreational marijuana.
