I knew it would happen... it's been forever since I posted!
Well, I'm feeling more in the direction of a PhD these days. If you check out my research blog , then you can see what I am working on.
I've also spent some time debugging some open source projects. In particular, I was tracking down the cause of flickering OpenGL screensavers in KDE. I think I tracked it down, though. It's the first time I ever tried to fix something in an open source project, and then told other people about it. I have a feeling, though, that my fixes are not going to be good enough. They really seemed too easy....
I got a new chair from OfficeMax the other day! It was a 130 dollar chair for 90 dollars off. Not a bad deal, eh?
After a chat I was having in a chat room earlier, I think I should count my blessings about being in a research program. It's boring, and hard at times, but I think that most jobs that people have are boring. I can't imagine being in a retail/sales/marketing/financial job.
I'm on my third cell phone! The replacement phone that I got after my phone fell into the river, well, it stopped working so well. So, I got another friend to donate a phone. This one's just like my old phone, only it has one of those tacky blinking batteries:
I thought they were cool, like 2 years ago. Now I have one and I hate it. Oh well!
