man, the high-dim paper we're going through is tough stuff. a lot of clever stuff in it.


got our first test back in probability. best score was 100, followed by 2 95s, then a few lower 90s, then a bunch of 80s, then a lot of 70s, then lower scores. i got one of the 95s, but that doesn't say much, since I knew a lot coming in. the homework has involved a lot of ugly integrals lately.

people are already starting to think about classes for next semester and doing stuff in the summer.

I watched Elementary last week. It was okay.

My new washer arrives tomorrow. I'm looking forward to it. We are line drying the clothes. It's Energy Star, but it's a top-loading washer, so its efficiency will always be a bit limited.

Anyway, so I have to think about what classes I'm going to do. For me, basically, the choice is multivariate or statistical computing. There's a data mining class, which is a maybe, but, you know, who knows. I think it will all depend on who's teaching what. There are options I'm definitely not considering: surveys, for one. I think registration opens in a couple weeks, which is surprising.

wait - comcast billed me for last month? bastards.  on the phone now. they have no record of me calling, but they did have down for cancelling service, so i must have called, so everybody is confused.
