Mountain View

So apparently orientation for the first week of the new job has to be had in headquarters in Mountain View, CA. So I'll be around there for the week of the 25th. Anyone around?

Comcast

So I'm thinking I will sign up for comcast, despite my previous reservations. It just doesn't make financial sense any other way.

Update?

So... someone commented that I don't update here much. It's true. I occasionally twitter random inanities, but nothing much.

Workout plan got put on hold due to money woes. Yes, even rich people can have money woes.

I need to get my butt in gear to start a Master's degree. Can't quit my job to do the PhD, but at least I can make progress on it.

Not much else to say...

Personal trainer

First session with personal trainer today. Ow. Took me 45 minutes and 4 glasses of water before I could reliably stand up again. I'm pretty sure I managed to tank my blood volume with all the exercise. Still, great endorphin rush! :-)

No gamma for you

I tried to gamma-adjust the display... bad idea. Apparently the gamma varies based on viewing angle.

New toys!

New video card: eVGA GTX 260 (not the Core 216 version, unfortunately)
New monitor: Samsung SyncMaster 2233sw

OMG fun. The GTX 260 is a monster!

QOTD

"Basically, play[ing] EVE is exactly like using Windows - except instead of selecting Cut, Copy and Open With, you're selecting Target Lock, Orbit, and Activate Acceleration Gate."
