Congrats to Leslie Lamport for winning this year's Turing Award! I always forget that he's worked on a lot more things than just LaTeX.

Amazon announces plans for deliveries via autonomous robots, and everyone on the Internet thinks Skynet.

Not me.

I was all set to call shenanigans on Matlab this morning, but the bug turned out to be entirely my fault! Well, mostly my fault. Their error message still sucked.

I just saw a young man in the Valley Forge B&N with a scruffy beard and a porkpie hat. Turns out there are hipsters in the suburbs, too. Who knew?

Bobby Knight in the opener, Dickie V in the nightcap. Did Dan Shulman lose a bet?

Attention car dealers: If you think that calling me up at home at 9:30 on a Saturday morning is going to make me more likely to purchase a car from you, you're sadly mistaken.

I don't know what algorithm Apple's using to compress memory in Mavericks, but I do know that they didn't tune it on a late 2009 Macbook with 8 GM of RAM.

All these complaints I'm reading about the changes in Pages 5.0 make me really glad of my strategic decision when I started grad school to write all my documents using emacs and LaTeX.

It finally occurred to me today: with those thick magnifying lenses and his Fing-longer, Professor Farnsworth must own a Microsoft Surface.

Story
Introduction
I'm a grad student at Drexel University, working on a PhD in Computer Science. My thesis topic is Canonical Behavior Patterns.

No, I don't know when I'm going to be finished, but I'm hoping it will be soon.

In my spare time I run the Philadelphia Perl Mongers.
