ListenQuest mini 2005 (26 Apr 2005 at 09:25)
This morning I finished listening to every MP3 on my computer with a rating of 3/5 stars (ie, songs that I specifically like) or better. This took me two weeks! It is a nice way to listen to music, though--much better than when I forced myself to listen to every CD in my collection, all the way through, even like the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers movie soundtrack. I did that in College, and it would be at least twice as hard today, especially since there are a number of discs I've almost totally grown out of.

Speaking of mini, the Famicompo Mini vol.2, which is an informal competition to make new Nintendo music, is currently underway. It ends with the month of April. In addition to extending my midimml software substantially (changes are secret to give me an edge in the contest!) I've written about half a song, but I need to pick up the pace...

Space Survey Response (08 Apr 2005 at 17:11)
46. Do you have any ideas for adding some "SCS personality" to the new building?

the corridors are illuminated by an elaborate matrix of fiber optic cables, beaming sunlight through a steam-powered "difference engine" that computes, at a pace of one symbol per second, digits of the binary expansion of the golden ratio. these symbols are then transmitted to the occupants as glittering pulses of light dancing within the otherwise mute sterility of its concrete qua concrete fireproof halls

47. Any suggestions for technology to include in the new building?

NP-oracle

48. Do you have special wishes or ideas in terms of architecture, aesthetics, or general functioning for the building?

optimally, the building would be construed as an enormous royal blue lowercase 'e' with a galactic swash encircling it, meant to symbolize the kinetic grace of thought that takes place within.

RDR 2005 Tees (05 Apr 2005 at 02:18)
I always tell myself I'll remember to link these things up after the event passes (not wanting to "spoil" the surprise), but then I forget. No more.

This year I made the "Random Distance Run" t-shirt design, just like the last two years. The random distance run is a new tradition in the CS department; we line up on the track on race day, and the length of the run is determined by the roll of two enormous fuzzy dice (rolled by one of our local theory luminaries). The front of the shirt depicts an unlucky roll. The back of the shirt is filled with groanworthy computer science in-jokes set in the context of fictitious "sponsors" of the race. Since I don't think I posted them, you can see designs from 2003 and 2004, too.

They are a woman (29 Mar 2005 at 16:08)
Ok, they-as-third-person-singular-pronoun apologists, do you not agree that this usage makes senator Clinton sound like an idiot?
