I'm just hanging back at home doing some remodeling for the parents. I got back late May. What are you up to these days?

Awesome part about teaching in Korea? They give you free alcohol at festivals.

Food for thought.
So if the speed of light isn't the be all end all constant we have for our limits, then doesn't that mean that the 14.5 billion year wall we can't see past isn't worth anything anymore as far as determining the size of the universe?
Light is the new radiowave in physics?
This would also mean the universe isn't actually 14.5 billion years old.

Using the faster neutrinos speed from the results would give us roughly an extra 290,000 years. Not too much to balk at considering. But still makes us open up the whole discussion about how old the universe is.

I'm not saying we are changing the way we measure things or disputing light's speed. Just saying that the common "the universe must be 14.5 billion years old because that's all we can see (based on light)" thinking might need to be changed.

Heading to the Bagdad Theater for http://www.omsi.edu/sciencepubportland.
Loves me some science.

I also hear there is a good history of videogames exhibit at the actual OMSI building which I might check out as well.

Must be a typo but the Mac Mini http://www.apple.com/macmini/specs.html
"Intel HD Graphics 3000 processor with 288MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with main memory3"
288? never seen that before.

It's gratifying to know that while people are talking about seeing The Avengers in 5 days, I got to see it 5 days ago myself. It won't disappoint you.

Going to be teaching a math class to 4th. graders about numbers.
Anybody have any good number puzzles or games that I should/could use?
The more mind blowing and fun the better.

Things to know:
The students are Korean and their levels of English are.... well.... not so good.
It's a one time thing. So this isn't building into anything else.
It's simply a chance for them to learn math taught in English.
They are the smart kids in the school.
Straight A, know everything type kids that just "get it."

The new FB stream is doing something funky. I make a post. A friend comments on said post. So then FB decides to put that in my stream as well.

Do really need a separate item in my news stream about the same thing?
Fancy algorithm my butt.

So I have something that looks like this:

Things I've learned about Lion so far.
1. Launchpad is next to useless for me.
2. The scrolling is awkward at first but I've gotten used to it and am okay with the change now.
3. Love fullscreen apps
4. Love changing window size from any side.
5. Scrollbars are too minimalistic (I would like them a little thicker)
6. Mission Control seems a little cluttered now, but I have the feeling i'll get used to it.

Overall, not too much difference. Just lots of small little refinements. Pretty happy really.
Rating: Buy. What else do you think you're gonna realistically do?
Left thumb: Up
Right thumb: kinda up
Shoulders: 'meh' mode
Eyes: glazed

Ah, thanks for the succinct review! I purchased it on the release date, but I have yet to install it. Part laziness, part waiting for some more real world reviews. Might I ask what kind of Mac you are using? I'm on an early 08 MBP, which should be decent enough with Lion, but it seems like most people reviewing it have more up to date systems.
