Divide by Null - undefined

Infinitesimals

Voicemail has its uses, for example, when one won't be able to pick up the phone for awhile, but needs to relay a message immediately, or when other forms of communication are not possible, i.e. e-mail or texting is inconvenient or irrelevant.

However, I still usually end up ignoring it, thus rendering most of the pros as moot.

On the subject of high school friends, just because you're different, doesn't mean you can't be friends.

Pi is wrong.

Well, actually, maybe it would just be better to use what is currently known as 2*pi. I've always thought it would be easier if sine and cosine had periods that were just pi, not 2pi.

So should pi be 6.283185...? Should pi be the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its radius, instead of diameter? If so, it would take about 50 years for this to gain any momentum in the mathematical community.

Battle for Electricity

I used to really like Edison and think Tesla was crazy.

As I learn more about the two of them, I grow quite amazed by Tesla and I grow to dislike Edison.

Tesla was a generous inventor. Edison was a (thieving) businessman first and an inventor second.

Tesla tore up his contract to receive royalties for AC current so the company wouldn't go bankrupt and people could have cheap electricity. Edison tried to convince the public that Tesla was crazy so his DC current would not lose to AC and ...

New Layout

So I guess with the new year comes a (desperately needed) new layout. I don't know why I made the last one. I guess I just wanted something orange. While it worked, it was... bad.

So now there's this. It's rather easier on the eyes than a bright orange. It looks a lot better because of that as well.

Plus now that I have access to photoshop, I'm able to play around with images a lot better and thus this came. Not bad, eh?

One thing though... it's untested in IE6 since I don't have it an...

On the iPhone

A phone that plays music. That's been done before. MP3 players also existed before the iPod but what set it apart was the design and capacity. The iPod was also far more expensive (like all Apple products), but that didn't stop it from coming out on top. Will it be the same for the iPhone?

Jeremy brought up a good point. Right now, the iPhone is comparable to the PS3 before launch as far as hype and price. Both are far more expensive than the rest on the market, ...

Sleep just a few more hours?

Do teens naturally sleep later?

I can definitely say that I'm more active later at night. Far too many times have I taken on some programming challenge at 9:00 and found that it was suddenly 2 AM. I once considered shifting over my sleep schedule so I would sleep after school and then wake up during this time. It was supposed to influence m...

Name that Yogurt

Monday, January 15, 2007 | 10:21:34 PM

So we started with Pinkberry. Then we got Kiwiberry... Iceberry... Roseberry. At least Fiore got creative with the name.

Sure, they taste good (assuming they taste like Pinkberry, as I've only had that), and I guess the -berry thing makes it familiar (berry = yogurt?), but still... no creativity?

REAL ID

The American people may have to carry a national identification with a radio microchip within two years.

The REAL ID Act mandates a national ID to replace drivers licenses (or rather, bring them up to a new defined standard) to be issued to all citizens, residents, etc. Right now, the states issue their own identifications with not much interstate linking. This act forces states to link databases with the new ID.

There's quite a bit of controve...

What's with Twitter?

Thursday, January 18, 2007 | 9:08:17 PM

There's a new sort of craze going round. That's Twitter. People send updates to twitter and that's received by other people. It's simple enough. So what's the big deal?

Twitter is a site full of everyone's thoughts. One can send a message simply relaying their status, location, desires, or general thoughts and anyone who wants to know will get it. So who would want to do it? A lot of people. Looking at my MySpace bulletin list, at least 50% of these bulletins are about ho...

I can identify with Christine of Happy Slip.

I want a 15" MacBook Pro for college. Until then, guess I gotta save up.

And by the way, check out other Happy Slip videos. Just about all of them are quite funny.
