Scholarship Woes

Fritz and I were both planning to apply for a Churchill Scholarship, to do a year-long post-graduate program at Cambridge. It now seems very likely that we will be unable to do it, because the next GRE subject test isn’t

Hate… ITS… So… Much

I won’t even start on the rant that I don’t need a virus scanner because I have a Mac. They don’t require any virus scanning for Linux, and the vulnerabilities in OS X and Linux are roughly equivalent. First of

First Day

First day of classes was today. Apparently this is the first time classes have been in session in August. Ever. Some weird timing issue with the dates, I guess. Thermofluid Mechanics was about what I expected; I hope the Prof.

Mandatory C-SPAN

I’m being my usual night-owl self and watching the proceedings of the House Judiciary Subcommittee. They’re discussing parts of the 9-11 Commission Report, as well as aspects of the PATRIOT act. They even had an important ACLU person testifying. I

Eensy-Weensy Cavity
