Ahhh. (30 Jul 2006 at 20:22)
Ahhh. The programming contest finished on Monday, and seems to have gone really well. Almost everything played out exactly as we schemed. I'll have some more work to do preparing the talk and a document explaining what we did and how we did it, but for now I can stop thinking about that thing (a full time+ project for the last 4 months) and relax and work on other things. This weekend is an instance of the former. We drove back to Hamden, CT to visit my parents. I did some running and we toured the thimble islands and we climbed the chin on our sleeping giant and went to New Haven and Pepe's and the pool and et cetera. I took and posted pictures of some of that stuff. See you back in Pittsburgh soon!

Contest start! (22 Jul 2006 at 08:38)
The ICFP contest is starting at noon (EDT) today! We've worked really hard on this, especially some long hours over the last week to wrap things up, but I think it's going to go great. If you like to program, please try it out!

Four of us are going to be staffing "command HQ" continuously in pairs for the next 72 hours. I'm hopeful that it will actually be a relaxed and fun time! And after that, glorious sleep...

(oops, never actually posted that yesterday...)

Update! The contest has been running for almost 20 hours, and teams have made a lot of progress. A lot of people are stuck on the very first part, but many have solved it, and there have hardly been any problems on the later parts at all. Very interesting and exciting to watch teams solve problems from a judge's perspective.

Ahh, city living. For the past two days, starting at 8am, a jackhammer right outside my bedroom window.

T Minus 10 (11 Jul 2006 at 21:23)
By the way, registration for the ICFP Programming Contest (this year from July 21–24) is now open. If you like programming for fun you should try it—we've put a lot of work into it this year.

Speaking of ICFP, both of our papers were accepted to the colocated ML Workshop, so I'll definitely be in Portland for the big show. Any recommendations? (Favorite brew pubs or specialty beer places?)

Also, I hear that some kind of «relic» was found in the dig for the new Gates Center at CMU. I hope the computational archaeolinguistics folks can figure it out...

Eye poison (03 Jul 2006 at 18:13)
Here's a freaky optical illusion that keeps going and going. I feel a little like my brain has been poisoned like in Snow Crash.

Creatures and Creeks and Pictures (01 Jul 2006 at 18:41)
We went on a hike in Raccoon Creek State Park and I took some pictures of little creatures. Happy like Canada Day!

Also this is awesome.

Now it's pizza and poker time!
