I lost most of my pictures in the transition over, but the new home is (basically) free with my MSDN Azure credits.
One reason I lost more pictures than I otherwise would have was that I originally was using an Azure Website service (which automagically uses cleardb). Cleardb, however, then charges alot of money per month to use it’s My [...]
This is why the better science today is actually being done in industry, rather than Academia.
This is my reaction to a recent review of a paper that I saw – my tangential rant was at the end, but I’ll put it first here…
‘Peer review’ is so broken and silly. Interestingly I’m noticing BETT [...]
For some reason, after finishing all the Project Euler problems (projecteuler.net) – my account was locked. When I asked about why, the admin who locked the account said I answered too many questions in too short of time.
I would get the questions and do them offline, and then I would input multiple solutions at once. It’s not lik [...]
Thanks to the summer hiatus on Project Euler problem creation, I was able to catch back up!
Still lacking a ‘Gold medal’, but I’ve never even started a problem before at least one person had already solved it. Maybe I will try to be ready right when a problem is posted some time.
I thought I would brush up on my Pytho [...]
I have 3 boys – 2, 4, and 6 years old. I went to school (alot of it, too much of it), so hearing the doom and gloom stories of increasing college expenses, I thought I would check out what the ‘experts’ say that I should expect to be paying and saving in the coming decades.
The average annual expense now: Ivy Le [...]

Pretty easy to pass the qualifier, I did the first problem – Tic-Tac-Toe-Tomek -. I did the small and large inputs, so I guess that alone would qualify me because it’s 10 and 30 points; and all you need is 35 I think. But who knows, maybe I made a mistake with the large input (which doesn’t get checked until [...]
Just thought I’d post this up, since I was always wondering/searching the internet for timelines and things that were/weren’t normal. Who knows if our experiences were actually normal, but here is what it was:
OUR FIRST HOME
~10/19/2012 – Decided to start actually going to look at houses, so that we could get a feel for what [...]
This error has vexed me for awhile now.
Bug 1489 on their site. https://bugs.gpodder.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1489
One fix I was using for awhile was to reboot in safe mode and run gpodder to update my podcasts
Luckily someone came up with a way to get gpodder to run from the command line after resetting the PATH.
I don’t buy the arguments against congressional term limits.
The big one is that if representatives know they don’t need to get re-elected then they won’t care about what their voters think and thus will not represent their electorate…
umm, they don’t currently care a great deal about their electorate except fo [...]
Stop helping already!?
This, seemingly endless, bad economy and do-nothing government is really starting to wear on me. Lucky for me and my family, we are doing okay. I have been thinking a lot lately about ‘producing jobs’. I found a great job, after a long and aggressive hunt – and I have a lot of degrees and experience, w [...]
