    King of All Geeks

    No, not me, but good guess. Josh Green, the star of the "latest Beauty and the Geek" installment came right out of my department (having started two years after I did). Here is a very disturbing video of him getting down at one of our grad student "parties"...

    Playing Breath of Fire II (SNES) for the first time...

    ...and damn, this may be the worst completed game translation I've ever seen. Professional my ass, every ROM hacker hosted on ZD could do a better job than Capcom did.

    Doomsday

    Which of the major doomsday scenarios do you consider the most probable? Here's a partial list off the top of my head: - Nuclear holocaust - Killer Disease - Celestial Event (like an impact) - Alien Invasion - Economic Collapse - Earth-based Natural Disaster (like the Yellowstone volcano)...

    Best Two-Player Games for XBOX

    Any suggestions? Don't suggest that I get another system; it's the only one available to us. If it were up to me, we'd have a Gamecube or PS2.

    Summer Adventures

    So what do y'all have planned for this summer? I have a crazy summer of conferencing and vacations planned. The plus side is that I get out of New Jersey, the downside is that I hate planes. My travels will be taking me to Gainesville, FLA - trip w/friends and chance to see everglades...

    Science and Pretty Pictures

    I gave a talk recently and the slides had some nice pictures that you guys might appreciate. Here's the power point file (very large): http://www.astro.princeton.edu/~nbond/ox-princeton.pptTalk</a> For those who don't want to bother with that, I'll give a quick summary and some examples...

    Characterize Your Brain

    I thought http://www.bbc.co.uk/science/humanbody/sex/index_cookie.shtmlthis</a> survey was interesting. I don't know how much faith I have in the science behind it, but it was an interesting bit of self-exploration, if nothing else. I completed most of the tasks rather easily, except for the...

    Argh! Will the endian madness ever...

    So I spent the past few hours trying just read this output file from a simulation that one of my colleagues had run. "Why would that take a few hours?", you may ask. Well, I'll tell you. What I had was a 1.5 GB file that had been written in fortran (unknown version) and the following block of...

    Freedom

    Recent political events have gotten me thinking about this word. It's thrown around a lot in the American media, probably because we fancy ourselves to be full of it. But what does it really mean and why would we want it? If asked whether I wanted the freedom to do whatever I wanted without...

    Words of Confidence from our President

    "I think it is fair to say that I believe we've got a great chance to establish a Palestinian state." This isn't meant as Bush-bashing, I just thought it was kinda funny. Can't fault him for his honesty, I guess. <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif> <P ID="signature">---- "And dreams may come...

    And again...

    I just broke up with another girl. I guess that makes four in a row now. Is it harder to be dumped than to dump? Of course, but that doesn't mean it's all peaches and cream for me either. Of the four, three were great people for whom I had a lot of respect...it didn't exactly thrill me to...

    Now For MY Post-Election Speech

    DISCLAIMER 1 - This is not aimed at specific members of the board. DISCLAIMER 2 - I'm not going to argue specific points in this post, as I've addressed them all at one point or another. Besides, if you feel like nitpicking, you're probably missing the point. Yeah, so I'm really fucking...

    Well...

    ...I voted. I think you can guess my choice. I was a bit ashamed of my lack of knowledge of the local elections, but I'm not particularly concerned about them anyway. Did any of you angsty folks cast votes today? <P ID="signature">---- "And dreams may come That are everlasting Though all...

    Message Board Software

    What's your favorite kind of message board software? I've been thinking of installing a small message board on my homepage for friends, coworkers, and whoever else wanders by. The only requirement that I can think of at the moment is that it must have threaded mode. Flat mode is the devil...
