  • and the xkcd episode is posted on the podcast... http://skepticallyspeaking.com/episodes/27-randall-monroe
  • I have gotten involved in this science/skepticism radio show/podcast thing lately. We broadcast every Friday at 6pm MST, 8pm EST. I am managing the studio sound boards. I know a lot of you don't check in very often, but tonight we have Adam Savage …
  • I check in here every couple weeks. Mostly tumbleweeds, though. I write software for a living too. However, entirely non-Microsoft.
  • My haul was pretty light this year too, a few good books and a drill and bit set. The best present was my gift to myself of a 52" Sharp Aquos and a Blu-ray player on Boxing Day. I also pretended to have time to play games by powering on my 360 for …
  • CounterStrike under VMWare Fusion is proving to be a bit of trouble. Looks like I will have to blow the dust off of my old Win XP partition for this one.
  • Yikes, I am scared to see how rusty I have gotten.
  • When is the next one?
  • Interestingly enough, the company that I was working for disappeared from existence two weeks ago. We had millions of dollars worth of support contracts with large companies that will not be honored. Basically, the website went offline and the phone…
  • Mmm... I.T. digs.
  • Guesses: 1) it is overheating, you can monitor the temperature in the bios or maybe a motherboard utility program in windows-> clean out dust and apply some new thermal paste on the cpu heat sink 2) Power supply is shaky. If it was plugged into…
  • Cloverfield was a damn fine movie. The ending was a little weak, but so many epic scenes....
  • Posting from Leopard. Seems pretty nice. Everything has been silky smooth so far. I got Logic Express as well. I got roped into recording and producing a friend's band's album over the next year and have to learn how to from scratch.
  • A couple months ago I picked up Orange Box on Steam. With the Canadian dollar doing so well, it was a good couple bucks cheaper than picking up a 'hard' copy. I tore through Episode 1, 2 and Portal. Episode 2 was pretty sweet, but it chugged down wi…
  • Punch anyone who advises you to go through apple. Pretty much any PC-5300 SODIMMS will work. The expensive 'High Performance' stuff won't give you any benefit since you can't tweak the ram timings and is waste of money, but RAM with standard timing…
  • I guess it really depends on preference. I am quite well-practiced in C at the moment from all my thesis work, so that is where I can make a smooth transition. A lot of the work at this company is in the testing (they make high-reliability boxes, …
  • Yeah, it seems pretty awesome. I will be a firmware developer for Yotta Yotta. None of that .NET Java bubblegum crap. Straight-up hardcore C development They make these SAN boxes with some unique proprietary technology and they have some big contr…
  • I got both Super Mario Galaxy and Mass Effect about a week ago and I must say, playing SMG has pre-empted my anticipated engrossment with ME. I beat Assassins Creed which was, for the most part, AssAss. As a follow up to my wish list, I got a job w…
  • So many good games that came out all at once.... It is really unfair. Bioshock is definitely among the best games I have ever played. It is sort of an anti-Half-life in an awesome way.
  • Yeah, this writers strike isn't bothering me in the least. The writer's seem well-justified, and you have to admit that the industry could benefit from some major shake-ups. I will just fill my time with some video games and maybe read a couple of b…
  • Well, as somebody who has seen it (thanks bittorrent) I can say that it is just extra material that isn't really part of the main story. They used all the actors from the Pegasus episodes to do this little side plot, plus a hugely miscast new charac…
  • As a related point, my steadily employed girlfriend is buying me an Xbox 360 tonight. I am trying to decide whether Bioshock or Assassin's Creed is getting my time until Mass Effect comes out.
  • A completed thesis and a job. I'll also take one of those student loan paid off coupons.
  • I am going to wait a couple of weeks, as least for the first wave of patches to come out. I need my MBP to finish my thesis, and my MP for a few ongoing video projects and can't afford any downtime at the moment. Tiger is still a pretty kick-ass OS …
  • For the Edmonton International Film Festival that just wrapped up this week. I was part of a University student group team for the 24 hour film making competition. We won a prize for Best Director and came in 3rd in audience voting. That is pretty d…

  • I still need to finish zelda. I have been neglecting that like nobody's business. Mass effect drops soon and I need to find myself an Xbox. $1 CAD = $1.02 US now.
  • Yeah, we still get gouged. It will take a while to catch up if the parity stays. Halo 3 at the Canadian Bestbuy site is $69.99 and stock base Macbooks are $1249 at the Canadian Apple store. Unless the US economy starts crashing even faster, I…
  • I could import one and unlock it. Unfortunately, Rogers is the only GSM carrier here and their data plan looks like this: Monthly Fee - $5.00 Data Included - 2MB Additional Data Usage / KB - 3¢ TWO WHOLE MEGABYTES!@!!!!!!! Thanks Rogers!
  • Eh. The iPhone is good and all, but it is still a 1.0 product. It will be here sooner or later once the the fine folks at Rogers get their heads out of their butts. I am not losing any sleep in the meantime.
  • On today's episode of the totally rad show (revision3.com/trs to watch) they just talked about this trailer and they brought up a good point. If something the scale of 9/11 happened today, this is exactly what we would see. A bunch of really shockin…
