Facts:

Yesterday I went to California University of Pennsylvania (isn't that kinda confusing?) to teach computer science to high school girls attending a technology camp. This was fun. I taught them about graph algorithms.
I think my least favorite commonly experienced feeling is when I remember having an idea but I can't think of what it was.
If there was only one day per year, then it would be everyone's happy birthday every day! Wouldn't that be nice?
Tonight is the beginning of the ICFP programming contest. I will therefore be spending all weekend programming for fun and glory. You might recall two years ago that we designed and judged the contest (video, etc.), so the stakes are high for our team.
I realized that I can tell how nice a neighborhood is by seeing if the signs say "No dumping. $200 fine." or "You must pick up your dog's dumpings. $200 fine."

I just noticed you removed me from the CBV mailing list :). Don't want your team's secrets leaking out to my team?

Isn't the 5 person team limit lame?

Yeah, we reset it to be just the local people, mainly because we didn't want to spam you guys. Are you participating, then?

The 5-person limit is annoying for us because we usually have a large cluster-party kind of thing with people wandering in and out. But, the year we ran it was the first year there was any team size limit (4) and I think it was even my idea, so I can't really complain! I just wish we had known earlier, since there was some painful team-reshuffling.

Good luck and god speed! On bullet #5, you can tell how nice the Mt. Carmel neighborhood is because its signs relay this information without using words.
