a citing

Playing round on the 'net, I found that someone Cited my senior thesis from Rose! Someone actually cares about my work... cool.

For those interested, the paper referencing me is here.

I gave my cards talk to law students on Thursday. That was interesting... It appears that I will be the "TA" for a cyberlaw class this semester. Go me.

( Okay, honestly, the position is basically "lackey." I answer technical questions that the students have, help set up demos, make notes, etc. )

I took my "last chance" written qualifying exam today. It's over. Amen. Have a good feeling about this one, but we'll see what the oracle brings. Perhaps a passing grade; perhaps a boot in my ass.

desktop background

So today, the facilities people came in and stole my Sunblade 100, but they replaced it with a Dell Optiplex GX620. Now I have more desk space thanks to the brand new 20 inch dell flat panel!

Only one dilemma: I've been forced to switch window managers from tvtwm to vtwm (not a big diff), and xsetroot doesn't work anymore. This means I have to use xsetbg, which loads a background image.

Thus my dilemma! I don't know of any good background images, does anyone have a suggestion? I need it to be dark in tones, and 1600x1200.

I've been meaning to post this for a while now.

Around bloomington, I've seen a surplus of "vsop" markings on walls and stuff. I figured, "Hey, why not catalog where they are as an exercise to learn XML and Google Maps API?" Well, it was not exactly simple, but without too much difficulty I give you . . .

Bloomington VSOP!
