Gallery Updates

I’m pretty sure that most of my bandwidth goes to making downloads of gallery available to the wild internets. I have transferred about half a terabyte since September 2004 to May of 2005. Wow. That’s a ton of data (if each byte weighs about 1.65015943 micrograms).

Uh.

Welcome, Wisconsinites

Alien

We cleaned up here at work in honor of some visitors from Wisconsin, so I cleaned our jar of alien fetus.

Grades

Not that these have posted yet, but I looked them up in GRIT, so they must be right:
CSCI 3081 89.755% B+
CSCI 4131 98.629% A
CSCI 5403 86.100% B+
CSCI 5421 85.850% B+

Wow. Not only did my head not implode, but I’m even satisfied with those grades. I got 100% on my 4131 final.

It’s Friday, I’m In Booze

Paul is graduating, and Friday was his last day. Every day up until Friday I blinded myself to the immediacy of his departure. I just put it out of my mind because he has been such an essential part of me not losing my shit every day at work. I mean, work itself is not terribly stressful, but it seems to be the fulcrum of the giant lever being operated on by school and my home life. Zach does his part with psychotic psychadelic music and the ensuance of hilarity. Paul is the original other half of Team Kickass, so even gerrymandering to allocate a district of Team Kickass to Zach can’t close the hole.

Sometimes HelpingU

First I want to give my utmost thanks to Ann from HelpingU for taking quick and decisive action with regards to my SELF loans. Not having that problem hanging over my head meant that I could spend the last three weeks of classes only stressing about homework and finals. However, a new semester is upon us, and with new semesters come new problems, or at least new combinations of old problems.

The New Place

Two weeks ago I moved Cake Woman into our new apartment. Lisa and my mom helped clean and pack, and eventually Cake Woman helped me load a few boxes. I think that I moved four loads with the pickup and the wagon by myself, but every time I tell the story I add another load to the list. I’m up to about 600 loads now.

Postscript to PDF on Windows

I had to print a postscript file on windows. Adobe apparently hates people, so they don’t make their acrobat reader just read postscript files (which would make sense, since postscript and pdf are somewhat related).

Instead I had to install ghostscript, add its /lib and /bin directories to the system path, and then add an action to the file associations for postscript files to call ps2pdf with the filename and the filename concatenated with .pdf. Hooray for wasting a half an hour looking for examples on the internet. The key here is that it was not any harder to do this on windows than it would have been on linux, it’s just that everyone who does it on windows ends up writing a shareware GUI wrapper for it. That’s great if that’s your bag, but I just want to right click on it and do pdf. Actually, I might make that the default double click action — it just poots out a pdf, because when am I ever going to be dicking around in ps files?

Now to read “TOP-DOWN ANALYSIS OF PATH COMPRESSION.”

Ugh. Stop writing shit in LaTEX. Just use html, then you wouldn’t have these problems. Jerks.
