To “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlem God rest ye CS students now, Let nothing you dismay.The VAX is down and won’t be up, Until the first of May.The program that was due this morn, Won’t be postponed, they say.(chorus)CHORUS: Oh, tidings of comfort and joy, Comfort and joy, Oh, tidings of comfort and joy.The bearings on the drum are gone, The disk is wobbling, too.We’ve found a bug in Lisp, and AlgolCan’t tell […]

Life is…hard to sum up in an adjective. I’d like to learn how to act. After all, my best friend is a filmmaker, and acting looks like a lot of fun. After watching with wrapt attention countless episodes of Inside the Actor’s Studio, I remembered one name above all other names in the field of method acting: Stanislavski. So, when I was in the library last Saturday getting this week’s pile of books (including one […]

This entry is based entirely on Saalon’s post for today, so please read it before reading this. I think Saalon’s facing – at least in part – the true depth of faith. Which is a very scary thing, but critical to finding religious maturity. My God is literally unimaginably large. I don’t want a God that can fit in my imagination. My faith is complex. It’s weird. It’s confusing. I literally […]

So. This journal has been oddly quiet of late. As is usual with blogs, this is not due to me being particularly busy. Busy periods often cause increased blog activity as there’s just so much more to write about. Well, actually, that’s a bit inaccurate. I have been busy, but busy doing jobs of my own devising. Particularly, I’ve been keeping up on my commitment to my three […]

Okay, I think the site’s fixed now. Yes, yes, there are all sorts of problems on this site. I’ll fix it this evening (which is as soon as I can get proper access). I’m pretty sure I know what’s wrong.

I don’t think I’ve weighed in on the Iraq War debate yet on this journal, mainly because that will inevitably turn into a diatribe, and I doubt that my views will convince anybody of anything. There’s far too much real data out there for my opinion to convince anybody whether we should or should not go to war with Iraq. I ran across a quote the other day, in fact, along the lines of, “Never […]

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…. The day started out well; I completed all my errands in plenty of time to get home and do everything else I needed to do. I dallied too long, though, and just managed to finish cleaning before Cartoon Network‘s showing of .hack//sign, a neat anime series set in an MMORPG. Beautiful artwork, too. A friend of mine was scheduled to arrive and hang out about when .hack//sign […]

In a new experiment, I’ve reviewed a CD (Everpresent; click the link to check out mp3s of every track on the CD). This is my first music review ever. How’d I do? Oops. Thanks, Stephen, for that bug; it’s fixed now. Sure, the move to this domain had a few glitches. But just think: I moved 1,800 files to a new domain and had to change every webpage. It took me about an hour, and pretty […]

This site is now moved over to I still need to set up the back end, but the move was surprisingly painless. Programming can be a blast. You can dive into it and surface a few hours later, wondering what time it is. It’s all-consuming to the brain. But, after spending eight hours a day programming for several years, it screwed up my sense of time at work. I didn’t […]

Heh. What poetic form are you? (Beware popups.) Turns out I’m Heroic Couplets, which doesn’t surprise me.   Here’s the latest on moving out: I’m not moving in with the first friend, because I was never really sure about it. I’m thinking about moving in with the second friend, or possibly move somewhere locally. I may go out hunting for apartments this weekend, to get a feel […]
