August 8, 2001

  • toys: mkj and I got a cool powerball a few days ago. I don’t fully understand how it works. I don’t want to break it, but I do want to know how it lights up. Decisions…

  • work: Meridian Engineers meeting last night, where our new VP tried to work through some scheduling/resource issues. I don’t think that many of us feel like a lot of progress was made, though I feel like the managers were doing the best they could given their constraints. That’s all we can hope for.

  • nanotechnology: I finally understand why people on slashdot are so excited about nanotechnology. I finished the Diamond Age last night, and while I thought it had a weak ending, I thought it was an enjoyable piece of science fiction. Note the ‘fiction’ part guys…

  • sick: Two lovers were hanged by their respective families and friends in India this past Monday for having an intercaste relationship. I can’t believe it’s August 2001.

  • doomometer: We added a doomometer to our wall. It provides hours of entertainment. Well, minutes anyways…
