Sorry guys

19 12 2007

I’d like to take this time to apologize. I haven’t been very diligent or responsible for my posting or promises. I do have legitimate reasons however, it isn’t going to change anything. I’d like to take this time and tell everyone (all 3 of you), that my posting will be more diligent and of the highest quality. This coming year looks to be the golden year of technology, the web, and connectivity, & I look forward to telling you about it and my opinions on it. Thanks!


Today is the best day. EVER!

Today EMI, the largest record company, announced that all of it’s music will be sold DRM free on the iTunes Music Store.On top of that, they are raising the bitrate for all tracks sold. This is simply a boon for digital music everywhere, as Warner, Sony, & Universal will follow suit, they just have too to keep up. And before that indie labels such as Tooth & Nail, A&M, Fueled by Ramen, will follow suit.

[update: I have since found out Tooth and Nail is a subsidiary of EMI]

Yesterday, Thanksgiving, What I’m thankful for.

25 11 2006

Most people would think, I’ll just say my new MacBook Pro (Which is true, I’m quite thankful that I now run Mac OS X 10.4.x). However there is so much more.

First and foremost I’m thankful for my faith and religion, for the strength it has provided me in the harshest and hardest of times.
Secondly I’d like to thank Charles Babbage/ Ada Lovelace. You guys were the forerunners for what I’m using right now. And then I’d like to thank my family and friends. Not to say you are less than Ada Lovelace, you are certainly not, but I think that I would not be telling people what I’m thankful unless it was for Ada Lovelace.
And now in no particular order:

Srinivasa Ramanujan, Pierre de Fermat, Andrew Wiles, Albert Einstein, Stephen Hawking, Issac Newton, Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, & Bernard Reimann. You guys were/are pretty freakin’ awesome.

Metallica, Nine Inch Nails (Trent Reznor), Slayer, Panic! at the Disco, Norma Jean, Five Iron Frenzy, Daft Punk, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, & Alice in Chains. Wondrous Music!

Eugene Atget, Ansel Adams, David Hockney, and various other photographers. You show the world as it is

Salvador Dali, Claude Monet, Rembrandt, Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci. You show the world as it might be.

Bill Gates, Kevin Rose,Tim O’Reilly, Linus Torvalds, IBM, Engadget & Weblogs Inc.,Google, Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak, Shigeru Miyamoto, Cliffy B, Bungie, John Carmack,Valve, Intel, AMD, Nvidia, ATI, Sony, Nintendo, & Apple. Thanks for making technology, gadgets, and computing my life and for creating gmail.

George Lucas, Tron, Steven Spielberg,The Wachowski Brothers, Kevin Smith, Harrison Ford, Tom Cruise, Keanu Reeves. Great Movies.

Douglas Adams, Micheal Crichton, J.R.R Tolkien, Robert Ludlum, Charles Seife, R.L Stein, & J.K Rowling. Great Reads, and interaction at an intellectual level.

My best friends (H-dog and K-dog). Thanks Brothers, good times.
All the people I’ve met at college, especially my R.A.


Thanks People

Life Sucks

21 10 2006

Life pretty much is the largest waste of time.
Look we’re going to die, we can’t stop entropy (mathematically we can, however it has since never happened). WE shouldn’t exist. Yet we do, and what happens. Dumb stuff.

Nothing in life is worth all the other fills the time voids between. Love, love is a lie, create by those who wanted more. Happiness, happiness is mirage for those who believe love. Love is the cause of all unhappiness.

And I’m unhappy.

Always have backups of your pictures. Those are memories you can’t get back. I lost some very good pictures of people I care a lot about, and now they are gone and left me. Like a dream I once had.

Just keep backups.
And Backups of Backups.

Forgotten Blog

4 10 2006

No, I haven’t forgotten about this blog, I’ve just been busy. In fact I’m writing this post on break from writing a critique. Lots of great things have been going on. I’ve made some friends here at university and already have stories I’m not going to forget (Waffle House+Drunk People= Funny and Scary). Parisian Internet Radio is infinitely better than US internet radio, mostly because it has more variety.

I have a fascination with London and Paris, mostly because I’ve been to both, and throughly enjoyed myself (well not so much Paris but thats because I didn’t see only the greatest museum of all time). I love Daft Punk a French House styled band. Lord Byron is my favorite poet, and as I love computers Ada Lovelace is my hero, in a non-hero sort of way.

Fear its gripping, Sadness is hell, and hell is fear. Therefore sadness is gripping

2 09 2006

Its like the title to an Emo song, you know how they have those super long titles that make no sense. However mine does because it is in fact a piece of mathematical logic. I’ve just added a tag to this post, “How lonely are you”. Although i’ve stated this before, I’m quite lonely, and not matter where I look, no one really wants to be with me. I found one friend I know is going to be awesome, and I have my room mate, but what about those of the fairer sex. Those of such etherealic beauty and magnificent personalities. Am I that bad of a man, as to not gain anyone. It seems to me that so many others can just get a girl and at least have them say “hi” to them. Today I said “hi” to someone I stood in line for 2 hours with and took a picture and she didn’t even acknowledge me.

Maybe no one wishes to be with me. My friends are gone ( or wish to leave), my family couldn’t be any farther away from me in the non-literal sense, and I can’t get anyone to fill those shoes.

Forever lonely
Forever Fearful
Forever Gripped
