Set a course for Pittsburgh

Tomorrow I spend 6 hours in a car going to Pittsburgh.

Saturday I spend 6 hours in a car coming back from Pittsburgh.

Somewhere in the middle is a conference of all of the Tau Beta Pi chapters in Pennsylvania. There will be talk of engineering, bowling, and drinking. I think that’s pretty much all there is to it. This honor society stuff is pretty easy :o).

I do plan to get a lot of useful work done in the car; I have a linguistics homework to catch up on. I’ll be getting quite friendly with Breton, the Celtic language of Brittany. Good times. There may also be some programming and/or web development, depending on how long my batteries last.

I think I’ve done too much work for the SCCS lately. I’m kind of brain fried now when I sit in front of my computer. That’s unusual for me. Very unusual. Ah well. I’m sure I’ll recover quickly enough ;o).

Hmm. It’s later than I though; my menubar clock froze about half an hour ago, along with all of my other menubar widgets. Mysterious.

A glance at the logs in Console implies that it has something to do with a crash of diskarbitrationd, which died a short time before my clock stopped. Interesting. No time to investigate this tonight; I must sleep.

Also, in case you haven’t seen this yet, you must play with this messed up toy-puzzle-game thing: http://www.interq.or.jp/silver/eye/grow/grow.swf. Requires Flash.

    Breton is on the same Celtic language branch as Welsh!! :)

    Also, my tutor for two weeks of intensive Welsh was a Breton. Very good memories, although I could understand his Welsh better than his English because of his strong French accent.

    Don’t forget the Cornish :oP. They’re being resurrected.
