36 miles

The Santa Monica Coffee Cup 2008 is this weekend!! I will be there will bells on. It is 3 rounds of double tree elimination, which means if you lose you play on the loser tree, but you still play all the rounds. I really hope I win 1 game, I really don't I have a chance of winning...

Aside from that, I have been busy making my wood working shelf. It is made of pine and has lap-joints to make the sides, it is a lot of routing, but it will be a good shelf when I am done. I think i will finish it next week, if I am productive it could be this weekend.

If you have not done so, work on the Google treasure hunt!! I have 4 right answers all saved up there, I am not sure if I will win anything but maybe, just maybe they will send out google stickers or something!! My prime number program took about 45 hours to run, most of that time was generating the primes... The other questions were easy, I did them during lunch time at work.

Welcome back!

I don't have much new going on yet... So I will just point to some new blogs I have found and liked:

Here is Keith's Electronics Blog. Keith is working with the arduino board too, he has even made his own shield with a breadboard attached!! He is also working on something he calls the LED puck. I can't stop reading it as LED puke. I wonder what LED's puke... Miller light? . He also has some cool tips on salvaging parts from random boards... Keith, if you have an opening for a new friend, where do I apply?!


Peteris Krumins’ has a pretty sweet coding/hacking blog I spent a few hours on this weekend. His picture on the side really creeps me out, but it is just a young picture of the guy... If you can get past that, he has some neat stuff. I am not going to make links to all of it because it is easy enough to get to everything from his site. The highlights are the few sites Peteris has come up with like picurls.com and digpicz.com. But my fav thing on his site has to be the perl and python learning guides.


Last but not least... Alex Polvi has a little side project that I thought was pretty fun, go check out favicoop and install the firefox addon, all the cool kids are doing it (do it do it!!).

In the Orange County Go Tournament 2008, I took first place with a 5-0 score in the 30kyu to 12kyu section!! I am pretty happy. I am going to buy a couple new go books, and maybe next time I will be in the 11kyu to 1kyu section ;-)

That's pretty much all I did this weekend. So... see ya later.
