I update less frequently when I don't have cool pictures to show off. Some of the niftiest stuff I've been doing has been my project for work, but it's unfortunately not in the set of things I can show off publicly. I guess I could photograph the processor I built for 6.004, but since it's all virtual, it wouldn't really add much. 6.004 is one of the awesomest classes ever, though. Another might be the class I'm thinking of taking instead of a HASS next term: 6.891 looks like it's basically Sussman and awesome things in Scheme. Spanish is fun, pero puede esperar.

6.041 (probability) is annoying, though. Why do classes have to be all mysterious about their grading? "Your TA is not allowed to discuss likely final grades with you." I mean, I understand the general idea, but it's nice to know going into your final whether you currently have an A or a C or worse. That's the other cool thing about .004: online deterministic grading.

Who else is thinking of going to Boskone? I'll probably go again, but just wondering who else'll be there. Cheapness of reservation ends in about a month.

Unrelatedly, the BBC has a free version of the awesome Infocom Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy text adventure. With pictures. Including, of course, a picture of no tea. If you haven't played this game before, you really should.
