Back In The Old Days

I've been reading up on stuff and found that, in the old days, they didn't have computers. And therefore, the mathematicians and physicists of the world needed some help. So, until the computers were easy to get, they used a slide rule. It's like those tables we used in Stats class except they're printed really small on plastic instead of in the back of a big book.

Another Star Wars Weekend

Yes, folks, this was a Star Wars weekend for me. I went home to my parents' and on Saturday night we watched A New Home, The Empire Strikes Back, and The Return of the Jedi. All in a row! It was tons of fun!

Mom and dad hadn't seen the new one yet, so we went to Revenge of the Sith again on Monday. Of course, there were tons of great food, lots of guests, and other things this weekend, but that's not about Star Wars, so I won't mention that.


I had nothing really good to say, except for the hundreds of things that happened in the last couple days and I wanted to blog but was unable to becuase of server switching. It's almost like not having a phone number for two days. I'm OK now, though. I'm going to my parent's for the weekend.

Speaking of which, I should try out that technology that WordPress has to let me e-mail blog posts to a secret address and it'll post them for me. That'd be cool. So you might e-mail blog posts from me this weekend, ya never know.

It's Nice To Work

No, I didn't get a job.

But for the past 48 hours, I have been working with a group of friends on a friend's roof. It's been a gratifying experience. I'd say we spent 24 of the last 48 hours at the house, for sure. Good thing there was good food.

I was on the cleanup and go-to detail. When people weren't saying, "Dan, can you get me a pair of tinsnips?" or "I need some more nails!" I was cleaning up all the old shingles on the ground. I didn't really feel confident on the roof, so it was cool with me.

Join The Revolution Pt. 2

Colleen, you're absolutely right. UST students spend way too much time on Facebook.

Join The Revolution

I don't know exactly what the problem is, mostly because I haven't had the guts to sign up for an account. But, the way it's talked about, it can't be good. So I'm joining Colleen's campaign:

 Just Say No.
