Withdrawals from Thinking

It has been quite a while since I’ve been so intent on an activity that I’ve dreamed about it at night. For example, when I was in high school there was a while that I was programming during all of my free time; I remember dreaming about C++ at night often. Then I started playing […]

Don’t Text and Drive?

So according to The Salt Lake Tribune today, there are now 22 states that both ban texting and provide a service to get traffic and road condition information on a mobile device (most often via twitter). Utah is one of those states.

Global Warming

If you haven’t seen this video, The Great Global Warming Swindle, you should watch it. It was put out by WAG TV as a response to Al Gore’s movie An Inconvenient Truth.

Great News

One of the primary reasons that I haven’t posted to my blog during the past while is that my computer quit booting up about a week and a half ago. Initial indications made me suspect that the motherboard had fried. I’ve had a lot of things going on and have been out of town, so […]

The Coolest Jump Drive Ever

A few months ago I bought a new jump drive. I still get utility from its design and size (both its physical size and mental capacity) every time I use it. When I first came to BYU I bought a jump drive. It was a cutting edge 512 MB drive. I used it for a […]

My Favorite Christmas Tree

Each year at work a Christmas Tree is dropped off around Thanksgiving time for our office. Each year my coworkers and I are faced with a similar conundrum: we don’t have any Christmas ornaments or Christmas lights to decorate the tree. The first year this happened a couple of my coworkers brilliantly solved this problem […]
