I had a fun bike ride in Albuquerque's crazy snow storm aftermath. Days like today are why I sprung for disc brakes. Seeing as my other bike got stolen a couple days ago, it's a good thing I was pretty much done transitioning this one to my everything bike: fenders, rack, trailer hitch -- all-weather, all-purpose bike!

Oh that's funny, you definitely needed knobbies, but biking in winter is fun as long as you have really good gloves, too... I need stud set, myself, though...

Holy fuck, +Comcast​. What's wrong with you?

I feel like there's probably a legal argument that all the people you send bills like this to should have no responsibility to pay them. After all, she isn't named Super Bitch Bauer. I would think it would be roughly equivalent to sending a bill to an address after the original account holder has moved.
Comcast is a repeat offender, also called customers whore, dummy, and a--hole.

+John Hardy didn't vote for Abbott Right? A lot of call centers also have really unreasonable rules, like if somebody calls to cancel, you get in trouble for letting them do that -- just because you were unlucky enough to be the one they wound up on the phone with. That's how you wind up in never-ending "let me forward you" hell whenever you try to cancel things.

I'm really enjoying being back in school, but this semester has also been kind of grueling. The heuristic I've developed for my calculus class is that if I haven't filled about 2 pages front and back in the last 24 hours, I'm probably behind on my homework.

I always wonder how people this stupid and angry manage to make enough money to feed themselves and keep a roof over their head, much less buy $30,000 vehicles.

+Amazon.com is so great. I just returned a $120 book, and only got $60 refunded. I sent their customer support an email about it, and they sorted it out in under an hour. Amazing.

+Cengage Learning PTR, on the other hand... I don't know where you guys get off charging hundreds of dollars for introductory calculus books, and releasing new editions all the time. It's not like the power rule changes every 18 months.

+Spider Oak, I've got a big ol' 24GB file that just changed, and has been in the queue as "building" for quite some time (a few hours). My understanding is that the building step is sort of breaking the file into blocks that get compressed and encrypted. Should I just expect it to take a really long time with a file this big?

Also, is it normal for there to be a regular-size file above the huge one in the queue stuck at finalizing while the big one is at building?

Still working on that art project. It's a self portrait, made by cutting a silhouette from black paper.

Employment
  • New Mexico Lottery Authority
    Graphic Designer, 2008 - 2015
    I’m currently a graphic designer in charge of all front-end development and a significant portion of back-end planning, development and testing for the New Mexico Lottery website, and am perfectly comfortable designing and implementing complex data-driven UI’s that will have their monthly pageviews measured in millions. In my five years with the Lottery I’ve overseen the change from hard-coded Flash-based designs to a high-performance adaptive HTML/CSS layout. My relentless fous on performance has delivered visually rich designs that nevertheless yield average page load times of under 2.5 seconds. My work has over the years reduced average page bandwidth use from around a megabyte to below 120Kb.
  • NM Daily Lobo
    Production Manager, 2005 - 2008
    That was where I honed my visual design skills and learned to work under tight deadlines in a high pressure environment. To this day I’ve never been challenged by deadlines in a way that compares to the pace maintained in the offices of a daily newspaper. While with the Daily Lobo I won multiple Associated Press awards for design and illustration.

Introduction
My hobbies include computer tinkering, privacy worrying, obstacle course running, science fiction, accumulating unfinished undergraduate degrees, and obsessively gathering data about myself. Basically I love science, I love computers, I love technology, and I can't even help myself when I try to make the present more like the future I imagine.
Bragging rights
I've been in college on and off for 11 years or so, but have yet to actually finish a single degree. I've learned a lot about a lot of things though.

Delicious food, great service, nice outdoor seating. I don't know what more I could possibly want.

I'm blown away by this place. It's huge, and the walls change frequently, and the staff and patrons are super friendly. The annual membership isn't even that expensive, either, if you look at it monthly. My only complaint would be that when they're busy they frequently don't have my size shoes. But they said they'll have a bunch of new rental shoes soon, and I got my own anyway -- because rental shoes are ooky.

We had their green chile burger, and the special -- an elk burger. Both were absolutely delicious, as were the fries. We tried both the regular and Cajun fries, both were great. The fried pickles that are included with meals are also to die for. They also have a fantastic interior design, a cheerful and attentive staff, and more different beers on tap than you can shake a stick at, and at pretty reasonable prices. I appreciate that all beers cost the same amount. I highly recommend this place.

Super friendly, best falafel I've had in ages. Their sign says something about "friends," and I totally believe. I walked out feeling like I'd made some.

Does anybody else think this Walmart smells bad? Kind of like blood? I like to imagine that they built it on a native american burial ground, and every night the stockers have to fight off angry ghosts and clean up after ectoplasm blood fountains. One day I fully expect it to collapse into a mystical black hole like the house in the Amityville Horror.
