A blog about the many neat things in life, along with the many other things that are lying around. Categories include: political things, philosophy things, design things, template things, garage things, music things, and lots and lots of other things!

This is now a running joke amongst my friends. Last night, I felt like photoshopping a bit, because I wanted to make this image. It's now posted on my door.

Kudos to Egmel for CC-licensing the original.

DJ Mix Things

What happens when I actually get a free hour? A (very) short DJ Mix, that's what. I need more projects like this - stuff I can do in an afternoon and be done with, rather than things which require continuous commitments of time.

Anyhow, enjoy 3 tracks of breaks & Electro. I won't say it's great, but it's a start, if I ever want to make mix CD's or get into DJing.

Time Things

A recent email I sent regarding the web site I created (but never had the intention of maintaining): WILY Radio
Hey Tom -

I'm sorry, but I'm not going to be able to fix the web site for three reasons. First, the password has been changed since I last worked on it, so I no longer have access (otherwise, I would have removed my name from the page a long time ago). Secondly, I am not, and have not been a member of WILY since the start of the year. And finally, I am up to my ears in computer science projects right now, and I absolutely will not have time for any clubs, events, or semblance of a life until the end of the year.

Sorry I can't help, but best of luck,
Also, another relevant quote from the Marovingian:
Ah, time. Who has time? But if we do not ever take time, how can we ever have time?
I told one of my friends that if my current level of school were a job, I would definitely quit. Maybe it would make money, but right now I have no time to pursue my own interests, no time to make new friends, and realistically not nearly enough time to maintain my current circle. I've lost contact with at least 8 or 9 of my friends, I haven't worked on a personal coding project since late January, and I haven't produced any music, photos, or significant writing during school this semester. If you look carefully at my flickr, you'll notice everything is either taken on or uploaded on a day that we didn't have school.

On a continuing basis, this would definitely be working on what's urgent, rather than what's important. It's the thing all the time-management authors like David Allen try to warn us about. This stress and loss of life is the kind of thing I am usually willing to sacrifice grades for. If I wanted straight A's, it would be like this all the time. Except now, I'm taxed to my limit just to be passing.

This semester should be the last of it. Next semester, I'm only taking three classes - hard ones, to be sure, but only three. Senior semester, I will see if I can once again weedle down to three - the important three I need to graduate with a BS in CGT and a minor in Computer Science. This summer I will be working 40 hours / week (which is a little more than I'm doing now), but will have free time every evening and every weekend.

Just thought I'd let everyone out there know I'm still alive, and I miss you guys. In four weeks, I should be back. See you all then.

Cabo Things

My pictures from Cabo San Lucas are up. All 129 of them, for the time being. I took exactly 1,000 pictures while I was down there, and a quick run through made me select these as the most awesome.

Today the State, tomorrow, the WORLD!

Today I am leaving Purdue's beautiful campus. Tomorrow I'm leaving the country. I will be going to Los Cabos, Mexico. I may or may not have internet access there - if I do, I will be posting lots of stuff to my flickr. If you've subscribed to my new feed, they'll pop up there.

Everybody approaching Spring Break - have a good one!

Geek Apprentice Things

If you've subscribed to my new feed at this point, you may have noticed some posts about music, explaining things, and other how-to's. The truth is, I've started a new blog, over at http://geekapprentice.blogspot.com, which I'm hoping to write some Digg-able content for. I'd like to get some semi-pro / pro experience writing for the web, have something I could cite next time I see a blog hiring, and possibly make some ad revenue while I'm at it. And my most important goal, of course, would be to help people in whatever way I can by relating interesting information and providing some valuable content.

Anyhow, if you subscribe to my Yahoo! Pipes feed, you'll be getting the updates there automatically. Otherwise, you can subscribe to that blog via my FeedBurner feed.

Glorius New Feed Things

So, I created a new RSS feed for this blog, which includes my posts on other blogs, as well as my bookmarks from Del.icio.us and my pictures from Flickr. If you're interested in some of the other stuff I put online, this might be a cooler feed to watch than just what you get here.

I'll also be switching the autodiscovery link and sidebar RSS icon to over there. So, check it out!
