A Game to pass the time

July 12th, 2008 No Comments

I’ve been really searching for ways to pass the time here, cause I’m usually pretty bored. Penny-Arcade just posted the results of some contest for Indie game developers to show off their products. I’ve only tried one, but it is awesome.  Needless to say, time travel and interacting with recorded copies of your past actions […]

Matilda’s

July 12th, 2008 1 Comment

I spent the last three days at my dad’s parent’s house in the Florence, MS enjoying the weather, fishing, excessively eating, playing with their Siberian husky, and doing a great deal of chaise lounging. One night we had dinner at this little place called Matilda’s in Mount Olive, MS, and it serves as the new […]

OpenCL

July 11th, 2008 1 Comment

I have been reading a lot about programming graphics cards over the last month or so, and it turns out this is quite a blossoming field. NVIDIA has their CUDA language and their new Tesla hardware which would allow Ben to have 240 cores! Also to be able to do a Teraflop of calculating. This […]

I-90 West

July 10th, 2008 5 Comments

I-90 is one ass-long road. It didn’t really occur to me when I started out on this journey from Boston->Bozeman, MT. The first leg of the trip was actually from Boston->Michigan, and we cheated a little because we took a shortcut through Canada and saw Niagra Falls (it’s really cool, check out the picture). However, […]

Green

July 10th, 2008 No Comments

I’m moving to the desert soon.  It’s not as though the roads are lined with cow skulls and cactuses, the vultures won’t be circling over my head as I bike to work in the blistering sunlight or anything crazy like that.  But it is really dry in Colorado.  Green things don’t want to grow there […]

Brand New Duck

July 9th, 2008 1 Comment

Today my grandfather successfully hatched his first duck. It is of the Pekin variety and has been named Miracle due to the long odds against it actually surviving to maturity. The image below was taken a few hours after it came out of its shell, and I feel it truly captures the cuteness of the […]

Ben (DQM): There seems to be a problem with your DQM reporting, friend. DT: I’m not your friend, buddy. Ben (DQM): Well I’m not your buddy, guy. DT: I’m not your guy, friend! Tracker: I’m not your friend, buddies! This is kinda a lot like mystery hunt, except everybody showers and I eat many more […]

Noteworthy

July 8th, 2008 No Comments

Over the weekend I went fishing with my dad on the Ross Barnett Reservoir. The fishing was terrible, but the weather was great and we finished breaking in the engine on his new boat. It is fast; max speed attained so far is 77.4 mph. In other news, the scripting language Python is not named […]

Sand Dunes

July 6th, 2008 No Comments

The sand dunes on lake michigan remind me so much of the beach in DE where my family and I used to vacation. Swimming in Lake Michigan really is like swimming in the ocean–there are waves, that rippled sandy bottom, sand dunes, dune grass, and a far shore that you can never see. The only […]
