Slashdot posted a story today about making snow at home… I wish we lived somewhere cold enough to do this, because I own all the hardware to do this now… cursed warm weather california bay area!!

New World Trade Center plans selected…

back in 1995, I started having this big artistic vision, and since then I’ve been persuing it in various different mediums… here’s a picture of painting I did in 2000:

and just today, I saw the plans for the new world trade center…

and I’m just not sure what to think.

random thought on programming

I envy people who can walk on their hands, maybe some day when I have sufficient time, I’ll learn how… but when I have to run from a fire, I use my legs, because I’m faster at running with my legs.

wedding update

We’ve been obsessed with the wedding… We actually got to this point of saying the actual words “I hate this world!!” because of how rediculously expensive it is to have a wedding. We’re thinking of spring of 2004 now. Gah…

mysql quirks in mac os x

Over the past week or so, one of our mysql servers at work has been acting weird. It was running phpmyadmin, and appearing to be working fine, but my own scripts wouldn’t show the correct coulmns, even when using the php mysql function to get all the coulmns names. I was tearing my hair out trying to figure out wtf was going on, having no luck getting it to work with any of the methods that I knew of. This being a live server, we couldn’t just take it down and reboot the machine at any point in the regular work day; we’d have to do that at midnight or so. Yesterday we were talking about our backup plans if anything happened to this server, as it was acting decidedly weird, but agreed that we couldn’t do anything til the next day because I had ceramics class last night to go to. Sometime between 8:45am and 9:45am this morning, mysql decided that it had too many connections, and stop allowing any activity. I kill -9’d all the processes and sudo ./safe_mysqld’d it back into life, and voila, everything came back, and my scripts were pulling alllll the column names, and working correctly.

But why?

802.11g wireless usb transmitter

Dude, how cool would that be? I’m borrowing an eye tv tivo thing for my mac, but the cabel doesn’t run into the office, so I either have to split it and run a hundred feet of cable all around our apartment to get it into the office, or acquire another mac and hide it behind the tv or something… Now, if I have a wirelessUSB connection, I could just plug the transmitter to the decoder box, and the receiver to the server… Voila, problem solved.

remote story publishing

Wellll, I finally got off my ass and wrote a simple form and processor to let me add stories remotely, or more specifically, much easier than having to do the whole rigamarole with postnuke… hopefully all of this will work out as I had hoped. :) whee.

Which OS are you? – thanks deeje

Which OS are You?
Which OS are You?

Apparently, I’m Apple DOS 3.1. Simple and primitive with a good understanding of the common man. I’m a work in progress, but a good start.

Good to know.

Grandma’s memorial..

Today we had my dad’s mom’s memorial service in quartz hill, ca. I flew in last night to my parentsl house, and flew back tonight. Today we drove out to the retirement community where my grandma lived for the last 10 years of her life. About a hundred people showed up to pay respects. My dad’s cousins Kipo and Darlene came to help out and to take photos my grandma had taken back to their homes. It was nice to visit with them, as it’s been ten years since I’ve seen them.

My parents and my dad’s cousins wrote a nice page long summary of the major events in my grandma’s life, which I ended up reading to the group. Everyone said I did a good job. Everyone also said they’d miss my grandma, and I agreed. –sjc
