moved! (19 May 2001 at 00:23)
OK, I moved spacebar to my summer office. Though it'll probably take the weekend for DNS to work itself out, I think I successfully avoided any major downtime!

PS: the machine was up for just over 100 days when I moved it. Wowsers!

Moving time... (16 May 2001 at 11:02)
I am graduating and then moving this weekend. Unless I get an office before I go, my computers will be off the internet for a little bit (probably about a week?). Sites affected:

spacebar.org snoot.org quake.snoot.org untitledgif.org standardml.org

See you soon!

NEW: webqueue @ sourceforge (14 May 2001 at 23:55)
Since I'm going to be moving around soon, I figured I'd get my current favorite project, webqueue a home at sourceforge. Mainly I'll be using it for CVS (to coordinate between my laptop and desktop!). More on webqueue to come...

Tortoise and Nobukazu Takemura (13 May 2001 at 11:26)
Tortoise and Nobukazu Takemura
1067×800 version
Here are pictures from the Nobukazu Takemura / Tortoise show. Nobukazu sounded good, but they hardly move around and it was too dark and solemn to take very good pictures. (Still, I managed to snag a non-blurry one of his friend, shown here!) Man, if I ever put on an electronic show I am going to make sure it is exciting. Tortoise was pretty impressive... they are so tight that it's easy to forget you're listening to real live instruments when you hear their records. Grab "Taut And Tame" off your favorite music sharing tool for a taste. More pictures are here.

UPD: Divide By Zero (12 May 2001 at 12:43)
One of my favorite authors, Douglas Adams, died yesterday morning of a heart attack! In tribute, I just made a font based on a handwriting sample he gave me in 1999. He will be missed!

CERT (09 May 2001 at 11:04)
OK, I'm now signed up for a summer job at the infamous CERT/cc, working on their Easel project. I hope maybe they let me use their encrypted phone and fax.

AYB: The Sequel (08 May 2001 at 19:13)
Here's a sort of sequel to the "all your base are belong to us" thing. Though the techno beats and synthesized voices are growing old, this one has some really nice animation, and is still pretty amusing!

UPD: aphasia (08 May 2001 at 12:53)
I upgraded the aphasia app s/msg to allow uploading of images. You can see our corrupted gif mania at the increasingly mind-numbing UNTITLED.GIF message board, and perhaps upload your own.

GBV Pics (08 May 2001 at 00:31)
GBV Pics
640×480 version
I took a number of pictures of GBV at the Beehive tonight. Most of the pictures are all motion-blurred and surreal like a David Lynch film, but I like it that way!

Tee hee. Some people on some kind of game discussion board think that my Three Letter Acronyms page is some mysterious part of their game. Check out their discussion!

More Alt-Tabbing (04 May 2001 at 13:50)
This Page taught me how to edit the registry to show more applications in my alt-tab display under Windows 2000. Now I've got 60 shown there at once; right on!!

If you have shockwave, then you might as well see the North Carolina Poop Counter.

Useful (02 May 2001 at 10:10)
I am finding the ResearchIndex extremely useful for finding papers and references while I write my thesis this morning-night.

Well, the System Is Going Down For Regular Reboot (5:00am), so it's time for a May Update. Forgive my crazy mind, it's not often that I Take Of The Caffiene in order to stay up all night to finish my Thesis Draft. (In fact, this is the only time so far, though I'm sure it will not be the last...)

Graduation is in less than three weeks. That is crazy. I'll bet my friends must be freaking out, because I'm pretty astonished that it's over and I am *staying* in school for several more years.

Speaking of which, some regular radar-readers have puzzled me by asking where I had decided on attending graduate school. I looked back and was surprised to find that I hadn't even posted here about that rather important decision. I am staying at CMU, which I guess was the plan from the beginning.

I signed a lease for a kick-ass apartment with my pal Dave Wang. I've known Dave since freshman year, when we lived on the same floor. That's what that "Donner Forever" thing means on his web page. I don't think anyone knows what "Botch!!!" means any more. Dave is staying for 1 year more to get his Masters in Electrical Computer Engineering or something. I keep meaning to draw a picture of that nice new apartment, but it's sort of fading from my mind and anyway I don't have time for that tonight.

Anyway, Don is going to work defending our fine country at Lockheed-Martin in Maryland. He says he doesn't know what he's doing, but I think I know what it is. He's going to be making some kind of secret virtual-reality something-or-other. Maybe he can get Security Clearance and steal nuclear secrets for me. I kind of wish Don would get a job at a video game company, complaining about how their games sucked. He is pretty good at that, and maybe he could get me an "in" on making video game music for real video games.

Karthik, Amy, and several other people don't know what the hell they're doing one month from now. That is hardcore, man. I don't know what I kind of wish they will do, but I hope it is something exciting and strange.

What else? I've got this page of five giant circles, each standing for one of the days that will suck until this school year is over. It is fun to cross them off; I will cross off one tomorrow-today after I finish this thesis draft. I think johnath is more neurotic: he types it up, sorts by date, indexes by weighting. And then he sets fire to it when he's done. I don't destroy things like that... I like my life to be monotonic.

OK, looks like the computers are back up. Awright, I get them all to myself!
