MICA webcams

I found the URL’s for a couple of webcams over at MICA: Java Corner in Bunting Center, the building where 90% of my time is spent; and the Brown Center construction site, where they’re building the new multimedia center which I probably won’t be around for next year. I’ve downloaded FlashIT and iCamMaster, and I’ll […]

Fourscore and seven kilowatts…

From Razormouth: US Government announces a new, nonpolluting renewable energy source! (Aside: Ooh, directory browsing!)

Silly little hippies…

I hear some people tried to shut down DC last week. Not only did they fail to block my commute, but they’ve managed to completely un-convince me that their causes and goals hold any legitimacy or value whatsoever. What I see, and what I will tell my 2.75 year old daughter when she gets older, […]


It turns out all I had to do was re-upload some Perl modules to extlib. So I’m back. Miss me much?
