Saw my mom's family yesterday and my dad's (really just my cousin Jake) today. It was nice to see everyone but still feels a little shallow since it's that whole once-a-year thing.
I'm meeting with Art Doler for breakfast. Haven't seen him since we graduated so that should be FUN FUN FUN!!!
The one and only... cooke

I worked most of the weekend and a long day today. Alas, I need the $$$ so it's all good. Tomorrow I'll go see The Bravery with Bobby and Jessica Iovanella, that friend from high school I was talking about. I never did write about that night. Needless to say it was great.
By the way, check out She Wants Revenge. You won't regret it.

I had heard of a class and a few books on this subject. It'd be interesting to do an analysis of the Fictional 15 to see if they could actually be as rich as they are made out to be. And are there other extrememly rich fictional characters in other cultures? I'd bet so.

note: not all extensions will work right away. Bookmark Synchronizer doesn't, which is a bummer, as it's the one I use the most.
I found some info to get Bookmarks Synchonizer to work with 1.5
- Download v1.0.1
- Open the .xpi file with WinZip, WinRAR, some utility that can open/write to a zip archive
you'll find the em:maxVersion set at 1.0 --> Change that to 1.6 and update the .xpi file
- Install the extension and you should (hopefully!!!) be good to go.

I had heard rumors, and was saddened when I read this CNN article. I think I'm perturbed that an intelligent show is getting the axe because America is kinda dumb. The show is quirky and subtle, therefore not easy to get into. But once you do... gold.

Other than that... I've been reading up on Ruby On Rails. I'd like to play around with it soon. Seems pretty cool, though the syntax is not like I've seen before. Should be fun.

Also, saw this on /. - LivePlasma
Probably one of the coolest things I've seen on the web in a while.

Bobby and I also moved to our new apartment. We're quite psyched to be out of our old place and hope to get most of our security deposit back... we'll see!

Jane and I went to Bagby Hot Springs today too. She got in the hot water, I walked around. That shit is WAY TOO HOT, at least for the summer. The creek under the bridge is badass though. Nice, clear, clean looking water. Parts are moving pretty quickly and looks REALLY deep. Quite a beautiful place.

I went with Garry to the North Santiam outside Mill City, OR for a river safety day. While I learned some valuable stuff, I also had a great time on the river. While I also missed all of my practice rolls, I did hit 5 of 5 combat rolls, all first try. Also ran a Class III. Quite fun.
Also, my former roommate Jane (Jea Hyun to everyone else) is in town. She flew in on Sunday and it's been great hanging with her. Too bad it's after midnight and I'm still working...

One of the greatest ways I've found to backup data and "send cds" is to generate an iso and send just that one file. An iso is a big image of whatever is on the cd (I guess it doesn't have to be an actual cd, as you can create an iso from nothing and go from there)
anyway, here's a great, free Windows shell extension for creating iso images, called ISO Recorder. Download it, give it a try with some cd. All you have to do is right click on the cd drive and hit "copy to image file" (notice you can also copy straight to another cd)
The iso that's created can then be mounted in a virtual drive. There's a program called DAEMON Tools that you can use to mount an image and your computer treats the image as a drive. So you can then mount your iso image. Pretty cool stuff.
I even mounted an iso, then created an iso from it, then mounted THAT iso...

All you have to do is download the Gorilla and then download my batch file. Unzip the archive (needs to be in the same folder as gorilla-1.2.exe) and run Gorilla for the first time to generate the password file.
Open up the bat file in notepad and configure lines 8 through 11
It's best to upload your dat file BEFORE you use the script!
Then, when you want to use Password Gorilla, double click the start link. At the prompt, enter in
where password is your ftp user's password. Press return and let the script do its thing. Gorilla will fire up. Log in, do whatever, don't forget to save. When you exit, the script will upload your dat file.
Leave a comment if something's not right!
As with any batch script, you should read through to make sure nothing malicious is going on!

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Side note... I messed up the url above originally. I put in http://http//zirancreative.net/gmapme/ and when I tried it out, I was directed to microsoft.com
Another side note... when I typed in http://http// I was also directed to microsoft.com... not sure what's going on with that.

Looking around some more I found Prototype and script.aculo.us, 2 REALLY sweet sites. With frameworks like these it won't be long till the desktop and browser are essentially interchangable.
Behaviour is pretty badass too. Now I need a badass project to use these all on!

"The United Nations estimates that more than 70 percent of marriages in Ethiopia are by abduction, practiced in rural areas where the majority of the country's 71 million people live."
Take a moment to think of that, and wonder how frightening it must be for not only the women but the families. While I'm not trying to say it's wrong, as that's not really the point, it is a pretty sad state of affairs.
I never really admired Reagan, and I did think Clinton was ok (actually, better than that... human) while I also don't like either President Bush. Just in case Jeb gets elected, I also wouldn't like him. Just not a fan of the whole family.
Anyway, it's interesting to hear what Saddam thinks of his life at the moment. Seems to be getting along just fine. Hang in there!

Well, that's what we'd like to think, but it's not entirely true. "The Story of Alice and her Boss" is a short read on MD5 collisions. It's nice they actually gave 2 files that have the same md5 sum (a25f7f0b29ee0b3968c860738533a4b9 done with MD5summer)

Now we can ONLY hope that IE7 will be standards friendly and maybe M$ will be on its way to not pissing me off.
Wednesday, June 01, 2005
what, and they won't? They're already talking about Jeb running and she can't take the joke? And all Clinton said was what his friend said... so... freaaaaaaaaaaaaak. I can't stand politics.

Also, page 73 has an important, often overlooked rule: you must stop for a pedestrian in a crosswalk. Not only is it polite, but it's the friggin' law. I've seen Portland Police smal on the brakes to stop half way through the crosswalk while there are people in it. Pay attention and driving will be safer and easier.
I did a research paper on the NIF in college freshman year and was so excited to think it might be done soon. I think it was originally scheduled to test by 2004. Well, that's been pushed back to 2010. The budget has increased about 8-fold, and many politicians seem upset over this. I however, would like to see it come to fruition at any cost. The scientific benefits of having this working are unknown in full. It's too valuable, so you politicians out there... mind your own business.

* Got it to work. Didn't really do anything. Actually, I can't remember if it was broken on my desktop or laptop. Here's a user script to add a delete button to gmail. Neat stuff.

It's good to hear from Dave, as all those rumors were pretty stupid. $50million/2yr contract is pretty stressful, but his frustrations with the direction of the show would be more of a reason to take a break. Sounds like Dave is quite sane.

I read an interview with Sir Penrose tonight and it was quite interesting. His interpretation of, not sure how you'd put them... viewings or states in the quantum world seemed to be quite simple. He seems to have always been worried on how gravity is left out of most quantum theories. I don't remember which magazine had the interview but it was cool. Go find it yourself!
I was pretty psyched to try out this app to help verify Riemann Zeta zeros but I never did get it working properly. Hopefully they'll improve the installation. Grid computing is pretty badass anyway.
