i bought those books on monday, and they didn't ship until friday/saturday.

i have to leave on monday (i'm assuming they won't get to my apartment by then), so i had to go buy books at borders.

i've been playing racquetball about 4 times a week, and i want to keep it up. but my trail running shoes don't cut it. i've slid literally 4-5 feet on them numerous times. i need flat grip instead of frixion lugs.

(wow.. gripz and lugz legitimately in the same sentence..?)

i also need a glove and i want my own eye-guard (both of which are cheap).

yeah. i still really like the convenience of dual monitors, although there are two reasons why i'd like a 24".

i. good for things that you use only one screen for - e.g. movies, games. for that reason can double as a small tv!
ii. what i used to do with dual monitors is use two fully maximized windows. since i only have my x60 with me right now i am having to make do with non-maximized windows on a single screen - this seems to be what normal people do on computers, heh.

although i read on lifehacker that two monitors is more productive than a single large one, probably for ii.

i might get the 24" and then get a cheap 19" or 20" for that reason.

It's the same in the Netherlands ... In the Netherlands the tax isn't for illegal copying, but for legal ``homecopies''.

In Dutch copyright law, you can legally make a copy of any copyrighted material, but you do have to pay a fee to the copyright holder ... Which is payed through the extra taxes.

i'm going to stick with available light where appropriate! i used available light before as a control so i don't impose artificiality. i hope i've progressed enough to where i can experiment using the same level of control being able to push light around in areas where detail would be superior.

today i was shopping on rei, and i added some socks to my cart. there, in my cart, was the sleeping bag still with the discounted price! it said it was on backorder, but that's fine considering the killer price.

i added a couple more things to my cart and applied a coupon code that came available recently. so i got a $250 sleeping bag for $168. :D

Two albums from Hospital Productions! (awesome stuff)

DIAPSIQUIR — pacta daemoniarum / crasse

"having already left a strong mark on there two revolutionary double albums on end all life productions, which carry the rare honor of warranting the term avant-garde without regard of following any blueprints, here are the first two demo's by this obscure and controversial french outlaw black metal band known for their decadent activities. pacta daemoniarum was originally released in 1999 and crasse released in 2001 and exhibited twisted, vociferus manic vocals spit on top of complex orchestrated highly distorted chaotic metal. never resting and fully absorbed in the savage, sexually violent, drug-laden nihilism of french subculture."


ASH POOL — saturns slave

"the wait is over. ash pool return with two new tracks of raw black metal from the cold gas of the cosmic crucifixion. blue vinyl."

a local grocer (town and country foods) was selling all flavors of rockstar for $1 each, individually, no limit. this is amazing because if you buy a 24-pack from costco, they cost about $1.16 each. so you buy them one-by-one at a price lower than costco's. /o/

the sale ends tonight. i just cleaned them out on the original flavor (there were only 13 left). there's a ton of the other flavors, but i just bought one of the citrus ones (i've avoided all but the original, so i don't know how good they are).

they also had aseptic liters of organic half and half for $1--i bought four. and they had single-servings of organic cream cheese for $0.10--i bought twenty.

I just went to the store to get some candy. Inside the store, I realized I'd forgotten my wallet at home, so all the money I had available was a NOK 50 note in my notebook (kept there for emergencies like this). I ended up buying a bar of chocolate filled with fruits, and a box of grapes. There are three reasons why:

1. I had already been to the store twice earlier today. The first time I bought one thing, and the second time I bought three things. So naturally, I had to buy two things this time.
2. The two things I bought had a total cost of NOK 50.
3. I like the things I bought (least important of all the reasons).

Well I had an iphone rev one... and I dropped it last week and the volume button on the side got jammed in the down position. No way to override it either... it works even on the lock screen.

Kinda a huge design flaw in the phone... and when the button is jammed up... it makes it impossible to use.

So I figured... that was a sign from the heavens. I'll post something in the technology forum about this thing as I develop an opinion.

well, publishers have monopolies on their products. they price discriminate by charging different prices for different demands (i.e., in different countries). by subverting their domestic price, you are cheating them out of their monopoly rents (e.g., economic profits, or obscene accounting profits).

http://hackaday.com/2010/03/10/50mhz-to-100mh … onversion/ The thread linked to is a fascinating read...

I remember building a band pass filter with butterworth response in college. I actually encased it inside of a Mrs Butterworth bottle... which btw fits a solderless breadboard PERFECTLY.

Ran VCC and GND to her tits, leds to her eyes for effect, and signal in on mouth signal out... tail.

My lab teacher said "Oh I loved that movie". Pretty sure she confused Mrs Doubtfire for Mrs Butterworth, that's my hope anyways.

bought this for my new sushi job.. works great and I love the feel of it in my hand. nice weight and sharp as hell. I sharpen it every day before I work and it cuts like butter. A little deep (as in length from the top of the knife to the knife edge) for a sushi knife I think, but it works well enough, at least for cutting rolls, not sashimi.

works amazing for chopping veggies and normal day to day cooking stuff, if you are good about keeping it healthy and sharp... and clean!

bought this pad at the beginning of july for $84.50; three days ago, i get an rei catalog in the mail saying it will be on sale for $55.99 from aug 27-30.

they won't credit the price difference. so i return it before the sale and rebuy it today.

how is that less costly for rei?! they now have my used pad (that they can't resell) and i've a new pad that they can no longer sell to someone else during the sale period.

p.s. why would you send people a catalog with sale prices in it before the sale starts? it has to encourage behavior like mine. although, i could have just bought another one during the sale and returned it for the non-sale price using my old receipt after the sale.

p.p.s. i wonder if i return an item currently on sale using a receipt denoting a higher price. which price will rei refund?

ok. well it sounds like i could have skipped the gray for now and just gotten a charcoal and a navy pinstripe.

i'm going to do all three suits through indochino, assuming their fit and quality is good. they offer functional cuff buttons after your first order. out of those three suits, the least formal is the light gray. so to my credit, it makes sense that i chose it for the first order, foregoing the functional cuff buttons on it rather than the more formal suits.

i don't understand the obsession with surgeon's cuffs. they serve entirely no purpose except to signal that you have a bespoke suit--by, for example, leaving the bottom one open to show it off like nestor said in some other suit thread. anyone who knows enough to appreciate the cuff will know whether the suit is bespoke before they even see the cuff.

unless you're in asia!

i thought formality was determined by the garment itself (and maybe to some slight degree the characteristics of the garment), rather than its color:

casual: sport coat
standard (for lack of a better name): suit
formal: dinner jacket and pants

it's not like you're going to skip from standard to formal by having a black suit instead of a charcoal suit.

yeah, i think so to an extent:

right. but within the suit category, there are different levels of formality and appropriateness.

Yeah, I do too but they only had it in lightweight whatever with black laminate. It really wouldn't be so bad if it weren't for these damn screws that show on the sides. I'm thinking about painting them black so they aren't such eyesores.

...So larz I remember your explanation when you changed it...but do you realize that your user title actually means "too good for strangers"? You'd probably have to use something like agréable or gentil if you're going for nice/kind.

"too good for the strangers" is indeed the literal translation, but i trust that google translate has better colloquial french skills than me. i was looking for a colloquial translation of "too kind to strangers"

google suggests these adjectives for "kind":
1. aimable
2. bon
3. gentil
4. généreux
5. obligeant
6. complaisant
7. bienfaisant
8. mignon

bon « 3. Généreux, qui fait le bien. » c'est parfait! amiable est peut-être un peu trop distante. par example, si « 1. qui mérite d’être aimé » l'amiable n'est pas la personne gentile, mais l'amiable est la personne qui mérite les gestes genereux. gentil est comme « pretty girl » or « nice young lad » en anglais, mas pas généreux. donc, je pense que les meulleurs mots est « bon » et « généreux ». alors, je ne sais pas la français.

> i have ety plugs for concerts. aren't they more for reducing volume than blocking it out?

i think the distinguishing factor is that they have a flat frequency response. they reduce volume by 20 dB, and the best hearing protection i can find only reduces by about 30 dB.

i think they might be nice to wear at work in general to zone out but still be able to hear people trying to get my attention.

i'm not sure how well they'll work with the vacuum.

I shop at my local book store all the time. The used bookstore attached to it has an amazing selection of engineering and sci fi books.

It's easier to find a good read there than amazon and cheaper. Plus I can stop for ice cream and enjoy the weather.

borders's problem was that they didn't hedge in the ebook market like amazon (kindle) and barnes and noble (nook).

i was amazed when bozeman's borders store had closeout at 20%. their selection was already poor, and people were hurriedly purchasing books. amazon usually offers over 20% off of list price.

I'd like to see ebooks combine with public libraries. It is unbelievably annoying that I can't renew my borrowed copy of Atlas Shrugged because someone else has it on hold. The book is like five thousand pages long! (And isn't the kind of thing I can zoom through quickly anyway) So now I'm faced with two equally crappy options: 1)return the book 1/8th finished and wait for it to become available again, 2)screw over whoever's waiting and pay a big fine by keeping it overdue. :(

I realize I could just buy it, but buying a book is hard to justify for me...and I (normally) really enjoy the process of borrowing.

that's correct, but it easily converts to the format via calibre.

One one-star review

Always trusted Hitachi disk drives in the past, but was disappointed when I ordered 4 of them and 1 was DOA. Amazon does a great job of handling returns so can't fault Amazon, but not happy that I got a 25% failure rate right out of the box, especially for an enterprise class drive. Packaging was good so I don't think that was the problem.

Bought a movie called Ankle Biters at Half-Price Books today for $4. It was amazing. Here's from the back of the box (with grammatical errors kept intact):

"A small town is overrun by ankle-biting-blood-sucking DWARF Vampires. Things get complicated when the vertically-challenged coffin-creepers get their itty-bitty hands on a sword with the blood of the last slain Tall Vampire. With this relic, they can create a super-race of SHAQ-sized Dracula's out of any tall human. Now, the half Vampire / half Human, Drexel, is the town's--and the world's--only hope to stop the countryside invasion of the mini-Demons. There are no SHORT fixes to this TALL problem."

i don't know. i've been sick almost constantly since i moved to santa barbara. i was feeling awful yesterday, so i slept the day away. that means that i got nothing done during a day that i needed to get a lot of studying and problem sets completed. i have very low self-worth--i'm not performing very well in my ph.d program. this doesn't include my incredibly rocky mental health during the last month.

so looking at the machine, i was thinking, "it's not making me very happy, while i spent so much money on it. yet, at the same time, i'm unhappy with my life in general right now."

> can you recommend a grinder? up to $500, i guess.

yes! i just did thorough research for previously-active use bsdlite.

if i were to upgrade from my rancilio rocky, i'd get this. but unless you're making 50+ shots per day of espresso only, it's not worth it.

And then adding electronics to it to plug it into his office network. Where he just plugged it in.

nestor:

i bought dannyp a manual grinder in august. i got him the hario mini mill slim. i am an advocate of manual grinders. they produce consistent results and offer the full range of fineness-coarseness settings. plus, they're cheap, fun, and don't need electricity (useful on some trips). but i think they take a while to produce a shot-worth of grounds, so it might get annoying if you attempt to use it with an espresso machine in the future to pull a few consecutive shots.

you may as well get one. i think that even if you get an electric grinder later, you'll still find use and joy in the manual grinder. similarly, even though i have a semi-pro machine now, i will keep my chemex and my ceramic melita filter holder. each has its time and place for use.

the ucc porlex grinder looks cool with its all-metal construction.

watch this video.

i try to buy all my gear from two suppliers:
(1) seattle coffee gear (SCG)
(2) espresso parts (of olympia, washington) for everything SCG doesn't carry

those are the best suppliers on the west coast. i really appreciate SCG's videos and staff. with that said, whole latte love (WLL) has great staff, too.

I have restarted my homebrew endeavors. They were on hiatus post move, because I had been sharing resources with other brewers and absent their gear I was in need of some gap filling.

I still would like to fill some more gaps but I should soon be able to lay down a couple of batches.

Looking forward to it. Trying to decide what to try my hand at. I am thinking an IPA and a Lager to start it off.

I still need a secondary cooker with a false bottom for the mash, and I need to get my hands on a means for dealing with hops. I've seen some DIY solutions that work.

I may need more kearney kegs. I definitely need a valve attachment to get my co2 regulator plugged into the kearneys I do have.

I bought a new 2012 imreza 5 door hatch. pretty much the base model but I did spring for speaker, tweeter, and subwoofer upgrades.

I thought for sure when I went to buy it they would charge me extra for wanting a manual but I was pleasantly suprised that subaru's for the most part seem to be stock manuals and then an automatic will cost ~$1000 extra.

the south bay kids (e.g., dannyp, etrangere) don't visit ttf anymore.

I bought an apartment.

Some pictures:

The colors are *horribly*, but that can be fixed. There's also other stuff that needs to happen Most of the doors are pretty bad, flooring, etc.
I need to leave my current apartment on july 1st, so it's gonna be tight ... There were a lot of delays before I actually got the keys (which was yesterday) ... I did end up receiving 12 for the front door though (?!)
I got 2 weeks leave from work and I'm working fulltime++ on it now...

Got a new battery for my eeePC--old one died a couple months ago. It feels nice to have 9+ hours of battery life. My old battery was only a 3-cell (stock), and the longest it would hold a charge was 2-4 hours. This is nuts.

I opted for Premiere Pro over Avid. Saw the ATI FirePro series is supported for GPU acceleration... so I went for the V4900

Way cheaper, plus I don't do any 3D modeling or CAD, so having massive amounts of VRAM isn't really necessary.

I've had the same 22" TV for the past 6 years... and my living room is about 25' x 25'. It wasn't cutting it anymore. lol

But, yeah, more positive. Again, sorry everyone for using TTF to get some things off my chest. As much as I enjoy the solitude up here, not having someone around to vent to meant things were getting bottled up.

Also, I drunkenly mounted the TV to my wall. Successfully. Who says power tools and alcohol don't mix? :D
