Diamond Shreddies

I’m sure that we all have our favorite childhood cereals. My favorites were always Corn Flakes, Shreddies, Rice Crispies and Cheerios. Things change, however; I haven’t had corn flakes for a LONG time and I didn’t see them in Loblaws or Costco recently.… Read the rest

A long wait

I’ve been waiting for my new graphics card to arrive since before Christmas!!! I even sold my ex-graphic card a few weeks ago in anticipation of a timely delivery. Boy did I pwn myself well; I haven’t touched a game since January 12th!!!!!!!!!!!!!!… Read the rest

Pacman is gone?

I went to launch my current favorite Facebook application, u-arcade’s pacman, and was greeted with this cheerless message. Dear users – we have been asked by Bandai to remove Pacman from Facebook.

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

Sad story

My high school physics teacher passed away last week at 34 years of age. Tell me how this is fair in any way? How can such a wonderful and caring person be gone so suddenly? Gone, but not lost to the world; she will live on in mine, her family’s, and so many of her students’ hearts.… Read the rest
