Still around and still reading your posts daily. LJ always feels a bit heavyweight for my boring, old statuses. If you want to know what I'm up to, and aren't already there, I'm more active of FB and Twitter.

Tried drumming "The Trees" on Rock Band 2 last night. Have all new levels of respect for Neil Peart.

9:38 am - Happy Meme Day 6
I have more than one kind of honey to choose from when I fix my cereal for dessert. It's a little thing, but it's indicative of how well stocked my pantry is. This makes me happy because I can improvise dinners, it means I'm not going hungry, and because my wife, who is responsible for all this, is awesome.

10:01 am - Happy Meme Day 5
My wife, who is a wonderful teacher, is in the home stretch of leaving her current school and working for a very awesome, very forward looking virtual school. It's a much better match for her and I couldn't be more thrilled (unless they offered me a t-commute IT job to sweeten the deal).

10:05 am - LJ Happy Meme: Day 4
I'm on a different contract at work for a little while. It's stimulating, uses relatively recent tools, and the tech lead shares my views on building software.

10:19 am - LJ Happiness Meme: Day 3
Christmas shopping: I don't always know the best gift to get people, but the people I have to get gifts for aren't the type who treat gift giving as some sort of monstrous high-etiquette+French Court Intrigue hybrid.

4:56 pm - LJ Happy Meme: Day 1
"The rules are that for 8 days you have to post something that made you happy that day."

I've got a house, food, good friends, awesome cats, and a loving wife. No one I know is seriously ill. In all the things that matter, life is good.

Twitter seems popular. I don't 'get' it, but I also didn't understand Facebook for a while. Am I missing anything?

4:44 pm - It's been over, what, 10 years?
I've got two multi-file torrents downloading. Torrent A is stalled at 62% with no seeds in days. Looking deeper, I noticed Torrent A is actually just a subset of Torrent B.

I found a bunch of completed Torrent A files in the appropriate part of Torrent B. After copying them to the Torrent A destination and doing a recheck, the torrent is now at 74% availability.

All I could think of at the time was, "For The Swarm!"

If I was really ambitious, I suppose I could try to merge incomplete files, too, but there's other stuff I'd rather do.

4:13 pm - Finally remembered a post I've been meaning to make
I've got a friend who's recently moved up to land of Red Sox to get her PhD. She's pretty cool. If any of my Boston friends want to make a new friend/be a tour guide, let me know and I'll get y'all in touch.

I'm assuming she's in the general BU area.

You could go see the new Indiana Jones movie, but only if you get a thrill out of wasting your time and money.

8:55 am - In the year 2525, perhaps
One day, we'll have hotels in space. These hotels will have cafes and on-premise baking. Zero-g baking.

You could put muffin dough into a perforated steel sphere and get many, many more muffin tops per unit batter. I'm pretty sure this would collapse the coffee house economy, but that's progress.

11:38 am - Attention, professional students.
Let's say I'm toying with going back to school and getting a second (BS) degree. Will most schools allow me to use credit from boring pre-reqs that I completed for degree #1, or would I be stuck taking and paying for Physics I again?

9:12 am - Grande, vente?
As part of a comment on a friend's page, I started thinking about names for coffee sizes in the South.

Itty bitty, cuppa, dang big, and huge sumbitch are what come to mind.
