I took an existing calendar and altered it to fit my whims. I don't feel like working much today. I have class until 8:30.


So much oblom.

I wasn't doing well at chess on the train, either. I had a tactics workbook with me.

chess.com kind of sucks in a lot of ways. At least, if you're not interested in paying for anything.

I have several projects piling up. Should finish.

I sent a note through google to my legislators about PIPA/SOPA.

Things that are awesome: the card game skat.

I should teach the wifing unit to play schnapsen, it's a fun little game for two, quite light, etc. Piquet is still the best two-player card game once you get the hang of it.

If anyone needs me, I'll be in the Angry Dome.

mention of it. Noted.

I have a raging hangover headache this morning. And the office coffee machine is in pieces and covered in grounds... something went very wrong here.


numerical analysis might have worst lecturer ever by gzt (2.00 / 0) #2 Wed Jan 18, 2012 at 05:55:05 PM EST
because they're trying to do it as a classroom+web class and the guy is a dinosaur who's only ever done classroom stuff and it's clear that he's used to talking quietly, walking around, writing on a board. instead he has to go slow and fumble around trying to do things so taht the people on the web can follow - they can't.

at least you didn't lose to a 4 pool by the mariner (2.00 / 0) #3 Wed Jan 18, 2012 at 08:20:30 PM EST
