Divide by Null - undefined


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.

Good-bye blues

I have been lax. I haven't had much inspiration for a new entry. But since I don't really have a regular userbase, I decided that's not much of a problem. Once someone reminded me that I hadn't posted, I decided to muster up something.

There's something bugging me. I'm looking at it right now. It's my monitor. Here and there, it'd have short spurts of "yellow fever". That is, everything would gain a yellow tint. More precisely, it would lose all of its shades of blue. For those that know color hex values, instead of #ffffff, it would be #ffff00. Usually, it would go back by itself or I could force it with a gentle (sometimes) tap on the left of the screen.

This time was different.

For some reason, too, I knew that it was different. Right after it changed, I thought that this time, it might not go back. Still, I tried. Tap... slap... fwap... BANG BANG BANG. I was hitting the monitor with varying force at various areas. Yet, to no avail did it revert. I then thought I could turn it off for awhile and it would return to its previous state. Five hours later, it's still yellow.

This also happened to my last two monitors. Malerie's computer is the same, but purple, that is, her green is faulty. I wonder why mine turn yellow while hers became purple? Did I overwork the blue? Did she overwork the green? I would not have been so curious if both screens became yellow; I probably would just assume that's the way it is. But when I saw the purple...

Anyway, it's time for a new monitor. I opened paint and put blue at 255 with red and green both at 0. I then put my crude drawing on top of true black. I couldn't see the picture. Also, whenever I look away after being on the computer for awhile, everything looks bright blue. My room, with light blue walls, looks especially bright.

Oddly enough, though, anything that wasn't really true blue appears blue. On Google, for instance, the text links are dark black, but the g's in the logo are noticeably blue.

It's annoying. It's not too much of a hindrance. I can still use the computer and do just about everything I did before (aside from image editing and website color management), but regardless, I'd really like a new monitor.

So much for Blue Shades

    Now it's "Kinda Dark Blue-ish Black Shades"

    *sigh* We gotta alert the publishers now.....

    Mr Wade: Pull out "Kinda!"

    Now just ignore me, I'll be done in a second...
