To all my friends dissatisfied with the state of the patent industry, you may want to take a look at this.

We went to an Albuquerque Isotopes game last night. They ended up winning 11-9 against Oklahoma City. They had fireworks at the end of the game, but we left early because it was getting chilly and none of us brought our jackets.

A new approach to multi-threaded programming in Java 7, ForkJoinPool adds fork/join thread processing for tasks that can be split into smaller tasks. It's not so much a replacement for ExecutorService so much as another implementation option, particularly since ExeuctorService simply implements multi-threading and ForkJoinPool presents a new task-oriented (or "action"-oriented), divide-and-conquer approach to process large tasks.

An interesting observation about the role of computers and big data today and moving forward.

I'd like to think this is where we're heading. It'd certainly be better than the alternative...

The Cottonwood Mall in Albuquerque. Nifty city up there on the ceiling. For my CSE/EE friends, those are supposed to be electronic chips on the ceiling. They wrap all the way around the edge of the food court here. Albuquerque is awesome :)

No matter how accidental this post was, it's completely, 100% right.

Well imagine being able to use a Google Calendar API as a data store instead of writing your own. Facebook does exactly this. They provide the API for you to share information with others and store information, and now even to have in-app purchasing. The closest Google comes to this is their Android OS, but that's because they understand an OS is really just a large service that hides hardware interaction. Software as a service is going to be the next big area of development (if it's not already).

And yes, very long read. Lol.

The staff isn't exactly friendly, but the putt-putt courses are fun. Didn't try any of the arcade games or anything like that, only the putt-putt. The place was pretty clean, too. The courses are outside, which means it might get pretty hot during the summer, but the courses are mostly covered and it's pretty nice at night.

I purchased a new 2012 CR-V from here today, and I have to say that the level of friendliness and desire to help and please shown by the sales representatives was fantastic. Raymond was the rep we spoke with for most of our visit, and after listening to our current situation with me just having graduated and finding a job in ABQ, he set me up with a loan from their recent grads program (which I didn't even know about until he told me) and a brand new CR-V. He was honest, forthright, and I didn't feel like he was trying to sell me something. Instead, the whole experience was so smooth, painless, and good-natured that I plan on going back there for all my service needs, something I never thought I'd find myself doing. The extra few bucks of taking it to the dealership is far overshadowed by the positive attitudes I'm met with by the staff. I can't stress enough how they took the tension out of buying a new car and instead give you what you know is a good deal. If you know what you want (particularly whether or not you're buying and which model you want), I can guarantee that these guys will give you the smoothest and most pleasant car purchase experience you have ever had.

We got a couple cheap, single rooms while we were in the city for two nights. Overall, the hotel was great for the price. Liked: Room 209 had comfortable beds, the staff was friendly and helpful, the rooms were really cheap. Disliked: The smell of cigarette smoke in the lobby (turns out this is because the first floor is the smoking floor). Other Thoughts: The Travelodge entrance is on the left side of the building when facing it from the road. I almost missed it since it was attached to the Super 8. Always call and ask about pet fees before booking.

Not too bad. The one across town on Menaul has a little more flavorful food. Wall to wall TV's and a big projector behind the bar make it great for game days like today (Heat vs. Celtics) but also make it crowded. Overall a great atmosphere and great service.

Great experience! They have delicious gluten free crust and all kinds of other gluten free options, including beer and locally made gelato (Van Rixel Bros, I think). Price wasn't too bad either, about $12-$13 per gluten free pizza. The salad was also good and came with their own homemade dressing. The only downside the second time we went was that it was noisy, but that's because the place was packed. I recommend going earlier in the day if you don't like crowds.

A little pricey, but the sushi we purchased was delicious. They also have gluten free soy sauce and sushi and can make most food gluten free to order. The waitress was knowledgable and friendly and answered all our questions about the menu. Will definitely be coming here again.
