If you knew somebody who only had x days to live, where x is a positive real number, and would then instantly pass away in a painless way, would you tell them?
It's hard to tell what's clever and what is dumb. We're pretty damn impressive when you consider that the conductor running the show is a gooey ball of grey matter that people have yet to understand.
Vegas was fun. I foresee many trips to come.
Long Beach / Los Angeles / Socal was also fun.
Da Vinci Museum Exhibit was interesting, but there seemed to be a lot of repetitive portions, where ideas were repeated unnecessarily. The physical models of his works were the most impressive.
I hope the economy does not whither like the planet we live on seems to be doing. If we're going down, we should go down in style. Ha, that is a horrible attitude.
Gran Torino was a great movie. I enjoyed it, even with the sub-par Hmong actors. Clint Eastwood directed a very entertaining movie, and his acting propelled the entire movie. The anchors for my attachment to this movie are its believability as well as the humor incorporated into the appropriate dialogue and character interactions. I hope Watchmen impresses me as much as this movie did.
I finished my desktop computer, and it is up and running. I am consistently impressed by how well it runs, especially when I was doing video editing for my father in making a DVD of some church events. The CPU usage meter rarely goes above 3-5%, even when running multiple applications. It also runs games such as Bioshock, L4d, and HL2 at full settings very smoothly. I hope I can use it as my own render farm when I get to the applications segment of the graphics course I am taking.
I foresee a lot of tennis this quarter. It's the third day of the semester, and I've played 2 of the nights, plus I'm likely going out tonight. Last night was at a new court far north of campus. That court is brand new, and was nice to play on with the lights at 9pm, even though it was raining and I had to drive there.
Classes for the final undergraduate semester:
- Computer Graphics
- Computational Complexity
- Outdoor Survival
