Night Light

Back from hiatus again, really only to comment on how light it is here tonight. I went outside at half past one because I looked out the window and thought someone was shining a ight on my garden. It was really that light. It must just be a reflection of the city lights off the […]

Just to let you guys know that since joining them a month and a bit ago, not only am I involved with the GU Amnesty website as previously mentioned; but also we have a blog now. If you know me, you’ll know I can get passionate about things. Amnesty gives me a way to direct […]

New Stuff: Gallery2

I’ve got a new toy of sorts – I installed Gallery2 on my server and I’m going to play with it to see how it works. First impressions seem to point towards it being pretty cool. I’ll give you a taste of one of the early images uploaded: 29 This is from Kenny – a […]

Something That Irritated Me

While on my many StumbleUpon stumbles, I came across a number of similar pages on “things to ponder”. These were pretty much a number of one-liners based on puns and technicalities.

As I commented then, the blog was being inundated with hundreds of spams, so much so that legitimate comments were being buried. In fact, when I recently wrote again on this matter, there had […]

Stretch Your Mind: Planarity

All you have to do is rearrange a bunch of vertices so that none overlap (creating a planar graph). It starts off simple but gets complex very […]

300: The Film, The Workout

So I saw the film 300 yesterday. It’s a pretty entertaining film; I’ve always had a predilection for ancient Greek and Roman history – especially Sparta, Lacedaemonia, and the Pelopennesian Peninsula. Of course, people tended to snort derisively whenever I mentioned this, but when they see this film I’m sure their tone will change. If […]
