New camera, same pals.
I just signed up for an online class at Berkeley (Intro to Statistics). I'm pretty psyched, because I believe all card-carrying lib-ruhls are supposed to have studied "at" Berkeley. I'm also just interested to take part in the whole MOOC (Massive Open
Well, after years of wanting to go, I finally got to attend the North American Handmade Bicycle Show, and it was worth the wait. Started in 2005 by framebuilder Don Walker, NAHBS is an annual trade show featuring bespoke bicycle framebuilders and accessory manufacturers.
You'd think that after seven years of living in Boulder, CO this shit wouldn't faze me anymore, but, alas. Since there's no way this made the national news, let me tell ya what happened here in our little hamlet of Boulder on New Year's
Today I stopped in at my credit union, to get a credit card. I had recently told Bank of America to go fuck themselves, and to take the credit card account I had with them for years and shove it up their asses, because
The education system in the United States is broken, we all know that. There are several theories about why this is, but that's not what this post is about. This is about intern punks. I work at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, and I
Yesterday Brenda & I trekked down to Denver to see "Next to Normal" at the Denver Center. It's been a while since we've seen something there, and even longer since I've seen a musical anywhere. It was great. I know, I'm generally
Hi folks; asking for money. It's not for me, it's for the animals. I am raising pledges for A Cause for Paws Doggie Dash on September 11th. Your support will help the Humane Society of Boulder Valley provide food, shelter, medical treatment and behavioral
You know what the problem is, the reason for my site's appearance looking like a front for the mob (like the candy store in my hometown that had all this old, shitty candy because the real business was being transacted in the back room)
Good morning. First off, I would like to thank all of you who cared for Lena in these final weeks. Your service is the stuff of sainthood, and I thank you all: family, friends, social and hospice workers, nurses, all of you. Thank you.
I still seem to be unable to talk about this, so here's the obituary, as I prepare to head back east. Lena GUGLIELMETTI (Mezzetti) GUGLIELMETTI Lena (nee Mezzetti), 86, formerly of NYC, Lakewood, and Westwood, NJ died on January 21, 2010 in the warm
Goodbye, Grandma. I love you.
Yeah, uh, Happy New Year. 2010 is already underway, as far as I am concerned, because the International Date Line rolled on through, hours ago. Here in Boulder, It's less than an hour away until my Timex ticks over to 2010. I'm not doing
Once again, I have had a humbling experience working with Radiance. Just when you think you know even a little bit about this program, you are told otherwise, simply by attempting to learn more about it. Details here: initial results with rtrace's multiprocessing feature
Today has not gone smoothly so far. Hooper woke us up at 5:15AM, whining. He'd had gas all night, so I took him out, just in case. He leads me around on a tour of the neighborhood as he strafes the area. We
The title says it all. Congratulations to the New York Yankees!
I knew this would be a fun World Series, with two teams I like in there, and a good matchup to boot. With a large percentage of my Facebook friends hailing from the Philadelphia area, I detected a certain bias toward the Lesser League's
Thank you Chase, for making my blood boil with rage enough to finally achieve enough inertia to log in to my long lost blog and post some bile. I should also give a shout-out to the asshole driving the cab to my hotel last
A few years ago I wrote a little post on this here website about my idea for the Best Band Name Ever. Imagine my surprise when there was a comment on that post, this here mornin': did a google search of my band name.
I finished my last job on Friday, and for some reason I thought it would be a good idea to start the new one the following Monday. Guess that means I start my new job tomorrow, and to say I'm excited would be an
Been a while, I know. Will have more to say later. For now, we are having us a nice little blizzard here in Colorado. The best part is that my favorite bar is on top of things. Here's an email I received today: From:
I'm listening to The Evens here while studying bacteria, and the song "Everybody Knows" just wrapped up. It occurred to me that I should have rigged up some loudspeakers to the roof of my car and rolled around town blasting this song
The cynic in me has taken a day off. Watching Obama's rig rolling to the Capitol has me in tears, for real. This is awesome.
The Maneki Neko, or "beckoning cat", is a traditional Japanese good luck charm, commonly seen in storefronts, placed there to attract business. During the migration process of taking my files from my old computer to my new one, I just took my
awright, I got my iPhone talking to my new user account. All I did was tell the "Applications" tab to sync with my iPhone, and it copied the apps to my new iTunes install. Then I did the "wipe", letting
