Saturday, 2009 August 29 - 12:26 pm
With yesterday's release of Mac OS X "Snow Leopard", and the imminent release of Windows 7, I thought this would be a good time to cover some common misconceptions of the whole Mac versus PC question.

The Post in Which I Advocate Medieval Torture
Saturday, 2009 August 29 - 10:03 am
Long time no blog, I know. And there's so much going on! I'll just cram a bunch of unrelated things into this one post.

By the way, I remember the first time I heard my Dad say "Long time no see", when I was like seven years old; I thought he was on acid or something. "No see"? What kind of sentence structure is that? Can you please diagram that on the blackboard?

Anyway... so what's the most spectacular news item of the past few weeks?

Five Quotes
Thursday, 2009 August 13 - 11:53 pm
I've been having trouble coming up with a new Five Lessons topic, so I'm doing something a little different today. My friend Anna wants each of her friends to come up with an original quote to put on a wall. So far I've come up with these possibilities:
  • Truth is in your heart; love is in your hands.

  • If someone else shows you the way, it's the wrong way. Choose your own path.

  • God doesn't hate you. He's just not that into you.

  • To improve your life, improve yourself.

  • Happiness is not found at the bottom of a liquor bottle; it's somewhere in the middle.

I kinda wanted the quotes to be funnier, but I didn't want to sacrifice profundity.

Anyone have their own original quotes? And I do mean original, not something you read somewhere.

Five Lessons: Probability and Statistics
Tuesday, 2009 August 4 - 5:27 pm
For today: Five Lessons in Probability and Statistics.. The math behind probability is fairly straightforward, but it often leads to counterintuitive results that confuse a lot of people. I've written to some degree about this topic before. I find this kind of stuff interesting; I guess I just like proving that intuition isn't a substitute for real thought.

So here we go...
