About this time of year, I search OSU’s site for websites of the classes I’ll take next semester. Why? Because when the classes are finished, hopefully professors will have posted review material, homework solutions, exam solutions, guides, etc. Usually classes change and previous semester’s data may be irrelevant, but it’s still useful to have something [...]

If you have a broadband connection, you can probably watch TV over the internet. I have a media PC set up in my living room that runs Joost. While the programming may not be *quite* prime time just yet, it does provide some good entertainment. When I first joined about a year ago, Joost only [...]
Today I got to see Steven Levitt (co-author of Freakonomics) speak at OSU today. His talk was very good and he didn’t give a total synopsis of the book. He talked a little bit about his next book, Superfreakonomics. I’m glad I crammed my schedule to see him, and best of all…I got my book [...]

I think with my generation, you can do anything with the original Super Mario theme and it’s automatically awesome. Mario Theme Played with RC Car and Bottles – Watch more free videos

There are probably better applications out there, but in a quick fix when two people may not have the same software installed or want to install extra software, [...]
This looks very promising. You can type in regex expressions to see what gets matched in the text. I’ve never been too good at regular expressions…by the time I figure out what I need, I could have just retyped the whole document. That’s no excuse not to learn it, however, and I think this website [...]
Ah, I’ve recently found something that makes rmilk so much better: keyboard shortcuts. I’d always get a little frustrated when I’d have to edit a task and it’d switch to another task before I could get finished. Keyboard shortcuts will make that a lot easier. The only problem I have now is that I have [...]
Recently I’ve been using the free, tiny Violet UML Editor for class programming projects, but it’s simple enough to use that I think it could be useful in many applications where a flowchart might be needed. I like that the program is just a simple java “jar” file that can just be executed right from [...]
What is with this crazy weather? I was going to make homemade ice cream for lifegroup tonight but I think it may be too cold.
