WeakNet Labs 2008/2009 - - Texts/Videos/And More!: "Networking"

There's an article on this site "Wireless Networking Setup" that is awesome.

I am currently connected to the intarwebs even though the wireless network applet in ubuntu doesn't believe it.

Using command line tools to connect to the intarwebs is very *very* cool. I'm rather chuffed about it. But now I have class, w00t!

What is BlogThis! ? - Blogger Help Center

What is BlogThis! ? - Blogger Help Center: "BlogThis!"

So, this is exactly what I've been searching for for a while. I've even entered the search term into google. But not until I'm sitting here taking a poop did I finally stumble across it. Blog this, indeed.

Hooray for a Tax on the Stupid!

Sadly, the Arkansas Lottery was approved... as if there weren't already enough poverty in the state, now all the stupid poor people have to pay tons and tons of money to a lottery.

So... Now that Mr. Obama has been elected (of course he won't be stuffed into office for a few weeks now), let's see if we get the change he promised us.

I'm hoping for more sanity in the White House... and I hope he's not a complete slime ball. We shall see.

An Ode To My Geekheart

Beautiful brown hair,
sometimes wavy, sometimes straight,
frames the most beautiful face in existence.

Big brown eyes,
deep pools of emotion,
shining with joy,
dark with anger,
burning with passion,
full with love.

Freckles, hair, and scars,
the skin made perfect, not as some "unspoiled" alabaster,
but perfect because of its reality.
Every callous like fine sandpaper,
every scar, from whatever reason,
each testify of her life, her strength,
her love for her children,
how she labors for others,
and gives of herself.

Her scent fills my nostrils,
clean from the shower,
thick vanilla of her perfume,
clean cucumber scent of another,
each one special, heady,
fills all of me with thoughts of her,

As I watch her serve others, her children, her friends,
those she encounters, my heart fills with love.

When I'm not around her, my soul feels half empty,
like my best part is gone.
But when I'm around her, my heart fills with love,
there is joy in my soul, and a smile on my face.
The world is peaceful, there is heaven on earth.

For my Geekheart,
Happy Birthday!

Go Fractals!

In his blog, roscivs mentions a Go project he's working on.
My program is intended to help practice these “life and death” shapes in an incremental way, by memorizing simple shapes first, then memorizing what moves lead to those simple shapes, then memorizing more and more moves incrementally until one can simply see, at a glance, the correct move.

This got me thinking. Go problems/games are an awful lot like fractals. Fractals are often used in Chaos Theory. This is an example of a Mandelbrot fractal:

The game of go, while technically having a finite number of moves, could basically be described as a fractal of infinite possibility. It's pretty incredible, if you think about it.
