    saw it, was pleased enough, but something is sticking in my mind: There are two episodes of references to mathematicians (that I picked up), but the second one (not the Newton's Method one) involved a name I didn't recognize and don't remember. A few minutes of research didn't turn up anything...

    School -> Work

    I had an internship last summer with IBM, and came out of it with a job offer, which I have accepted. The catch is that this is contingent on my completion of college. I'm in my senior year and trying to finish up the damned general education requirements I'm stuck with (humanities stuff and a...

    Maxis PC games, Netscape, Myst

    I'm selling a bunch of old PC software that's just taking up space in my closet. All are in fairly good condition and have the boxes and manuals. I'm really not looking for anything over the cost of shipping, just seeing if anyone wants them before I just throw them out. Myst for Windows...

    Vague movie recollection quest

    I once saw a live action movie that involved a young boy travelling around earth in a mind reading pod-like spaceship, I think I saw it in the 90s. Or it may have been a dream, I've been all over IMDb trying to find it... Sound familiar to anyone? <P ID="signature"><hr> (04:33:02) Nimdae: i...

    So I was taking an exam this morning

    already typed this out once on #usf: let me set the scene for you I have another exam with this professor on thursday, and he hasn't told us where or when it is for today's exam, which was entirely incoherent, we met in a room which had apparently been scheduled a year ago for a math conference...

    AFC decoded

    I have, though substantial hackery (much thanks to gcemu for making it possible!) built a decoder for the AFC audio used in Wind Waker and Twilight Princess. http://www.hcs64.com/in_cube.htmlCheck it out</a>. Note that you need to rename the .AST files in TP to .AFC for them to be correctly...

    corrupt DVD+R?

    I just tried retrieving something from an old backup DVD+R, and I find that the files are corrupt. I take a look at it with a hex editor, and it seems each file actually begins atoffset 0xc000. Any idea what might be up, and how I could fix it? I'm mounting the DVD under Linux, it was...

    Yale Patt on the Future of Microprocessors

    I attended a talk today by noted processor designer Yale N. Patt, decided to record it with my iPod like I do with my lectures. Sound quality leaves something to be desired, but if you've sought a greater knowledge of computer architecture this guy is quite entertaining to listen to...

    The singleminded adventures of hcs

    I needed to print out a few things for school, so I decided to head over to the campus computer lab, which is open 24 hours. I was also thirsty, so I decided to purchase a tasty beverage from the vending machines located there. I had no cash, however, only $1 in change (3 quarters, 3 nickels...

    first day on the job...

    I've just started a part time job as "student systems administrator" for the CS department at my university. Really makes me appreciate how little I know about Unix. I told them as much during the interview (that I'd installed Debian once or twice, and use Linux machines regularly for...
