|OK, it's October!
My parents visited this weekend to help me celebrate my birthday last week. We went to the mall and I got a new Tiny Playstation to replace my old broken Playstation with the abortive mod job. This means I can keep playing all my good RPGs like Chrono Cross and Saga Frontier 2 while I should be doing work. The new Tiny Playstation is quite sleek.
Lots of stuff on the plate this week, with something due (again) in all of my classes. I am finding the site called artchive.com very helpful for my Art History project. My theorem prover program for Constructive Logic called MEGAPROVE probably won't be useful any more, now that they've got us doing homework which isn't completely algorithmic. The Compilers homework continues to be defined in terms of a changing and buggy reference implementation; I miss rigorous definitions.
The results for the ICFP '00 competition were posted. Our team didn't win (maybe next time there will be less real-number math!) but we are first on the contest results page! ;)
Check out the new series of comics (some of which drawn by me) on untitled.gif. They are weird.
My roommate got some movies, and I still have some left over from my last e-commerce adventure. Sometime this week we'll probably be watching Battle Athletes Victory (vol 3), Blade Runner, and Metropolis.
