Super Duper Egg Breakfast

Merry Christmas to all!!! May the season bring you joy, good health and good fortune. This morning I made breakfast for my family. On the menu was eggs, eggs, and eggs (simple, fast and about the only thing I’m fully competent with in the kitchen) So I went for scrambled eggs.… Read the rest

Cup of Coffee

This gem of wisdom my aunt forwarded to me, and as the CCSS hosted a coffee social today, I found it quite suiting. I would like to help share it with the world. A group of alumni, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor.… Read the rest

Athlon FX-55

I was cruising around on ebay during the weekend and saw an offer that I could not resist. It was too good to be true: The user had a perfect rating, and an item whose very name would cause most hardware fanatics to drool.… Read the rest

Quickie

Something quick cause I have nothing else. Yeah I had to scrape the barrel deeply for this one. But, I was a friend’s hero, twice, for my troubles solving this. sin(pi/100) + sin(2pi/100) + sin(3pi/100) + … + sin(199pi/100) = ?… Read the rest

Robotics Finale

Before we begin, I need to explain the robotics project a bit. The goal is to have robots collect blocks, push them through a maze, and deliver them in a drop zone. Simple enough, right? Starting where I left off in the last blog, I found myself back in the lab Saturday night.… Read the rest

Brainteaser

When I was in high school, I used to post weekly brainteasers on my locker, and the solution to the previous week’s teaser (and then the peanut gallery would rip them down as soon as I left for class). It became quite popular, with the vice principal hounding me at one point about not having the weekly teaser up.… Read the rest

System Failure

Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: System32\Drivers\Ntfs.sys That’s what glared at me from the monitor of my brother’s PC on friday. It pretty much means that Windows XP is unable to communicate with the filesystem, because this file has become corrupted or was deleted.… Read the rest

Thermaltake Armor Jr.

My birthday present from me to me, a Thermaltake Amor Jr. case Yes, I’m nerdy. But hey, I have the best looking PC on the block and you know it:D Sadly, supposedly quiet fans didn’t meet my expectations, as usual so I had to splurge on a fan (and I have some from before).… Read the rest
