  • Grarrr!!! Nick Mad

    Someone deleted my Ratchet & Clank saved game on the SCCS PlayStation. They didn’t delete the entire save file; just my game slot, which means they had to be playing R&C to delete it. At least, I think that’s what happened as of 8:30 tonight. There were 3 save slots open!! I suppose this is […]

  • Live From the SWIL Root Beer Kegger!

    Conclusion: it’s dark here. But the party is happening, even if you can’t see it.

  • The Little SCCS and the Big Bad Dell

    “Daddy, will you tell me another story about the brave SCCS and the evil Dell?” “But kiddo, I told you that story last night!” “But I love it ever so much… pleeeeeeease???” “Oh, all right…” — Once upon a time, there was a college computer society that everyone called The Little SCCS. The Little SCCS […]

  • 443 Google Hits!

    I have made my mark on the webverse – 443 hits for ultranurd… and they’re all me!!! Yay! Hmm. Maybe I should stop Googling myself, or updating my web page, and just go to sleep? Random note: A draft of my new-and-improved web page is online: Nurd Central. So far the only sections are a […]

  • Lenten Plans

    I’ve decided that, for the Lenten season this year, I will try to do something positive instead of giving up something slightly negative. In addition to my being a good little Lutheran, it has the added advantage of not forcing me to give up something that I like :oP. I usually take the cheap route […]

  • Dell is Jenius with a Capital J

    The SCCS recently ordered some drive carriers from Dell, for our new hard drives. Unfortunately, they did not send us enough screws. We convinced them to send us more. They expressed us a single screw. They sent us a 2-cent screw at a shipping cost of approximately $8. A practically free screw… for $8 in […]

  • Book Quiz

    You’re Dune! by Frank Herbert You have control over a great wealth of resources, but no one wants to let you have them. You’ve decided to try to defend yourself, but it may take eons before you really get back what you feel you deserve. Meanwhile you have a cult-like following of minions waiting for […]

  • Slide Rule, Dynamo, Tau Beta Pi!!

    The title of this post is from the old Tau Beta Pi cheer. Silly honors society… you can see why they phased it out ;o). The point of this trip to Pittsburgh was to attend a Tau Beta Pi division conference. Six out of our eight chapter members could come (one is abroad, and one […]

  • The Cathedral of Learning

    The following is a collaborative story created by Geoff and I yesterday, while walking around Pittsburgh and in the long car trip back to Swat. If you’re familiar with Pittsburgh, you may know the inspiration of the story, but it is otherwise completely fictional. It is also as yet unfinished. I’ll explain how this all […]

  • The Music Meme

    I’m joining in the MP3 meme. Blame Adrian and his all-anime, all-the-time list. Note that the fields below are straight from iTunes, as follows: Song Name — Time — Rating (100 = 5 stars) — Artist — Album — Last Played — Genre Those just happened to be the columns I had active when I […]
