What a week…

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

The past week has been a series of ups and downs, culminating in the saga for the last half of the week.  My car.  My Celica.  The first new car I ever owned started making a noise on Wednesday.  The noise was due to extremely low engine oil (hypothetical question – what’s the point of […]

Navel gazing – new furniture

Tuesday, January 18th, 2011

So, I’ve been in my apartment for an entire two weeks now. Sadly, it’s been a bit sparse. There’s a bedroom set, a recliner sitting in front of a television which is resting on my stereo. But fortunately, that should all start changing. Yesterday I placed a fairly large furniture order. For the first time […]

The Sounds of Science

Wednesday, June 16th, 2010

Last Friday, hsarik pointed out an interesting web site: Echo Nest.  They provide a web service that allows you to analyze and remix music.  The API also can provide information (meta-data) about music, artists, songs etc.  and has Python bindings.  If you’ve seen the “More Cowbell” website where you can upload an mp3 and have […]

Distilled essence of me

Monday, March 1st, 2010

K’s out of town this week.  IIRC, this is the first week since we’ve been married that she’s out of town and I’m still at the house.  I figure that’s gotta give me a good sense of what I’m actually like without her, um,  civilizing  influences.  Helpfully summarized in the table below: Behavior Change Television […]

Back from the dead

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

Okay, I wasn’t really dead, I had the flu.  But I was wishing that I were dead for a while there. Five days is too long for a massive headache and very high fever. I’m finally recovering and doing some self-imposed quarantine after getting on Tamaflu Monday.  Tuesday afternoon was somewhat interesting.  My doctor’s office […]

For a guy who uses computers as much as I do, you would think that I would have better machines at home.  But really, no.  Our last desktop was eight years old before we replaced it.  My laptop was an old Thinkpad X31 – maybe six or seven years old.  So, for a combination birthday/Christmas […]

Dragged kicking and screaming into the century of the fruitbat

Thursday, October 29th, 2009

With apologies to Terry Prachett, I feel like I being dragged (dragging myself?) into the Century of the Fruitbat.  As I mentioned a long time ago, I don’t care for Facebook.  I prefer my blog.  That said, many of my friends and most of my family use Facebook.  So I’m going to start a bit […]

Peter Piper picked . . .

Monday, September 21st, 2009

Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers; A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked; If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers, Where’s the peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked? When I planted the garden, I put in a couple of banana pepper plants.  I seem to recall that my thinking […]
