You Say Potato....

In mathematics, and more importantly (or at least pertinent, to me) there is a word:


Say that word out loud. No really, go ahead! I'll wait

Tried it out? How did you pronounce it?

Did you pronounce it two-pull? Or more tuhple... like tupperware?

I'm very curious what your natural inclination is. I've always pronounced a "toople" sound. That's all I've ever heard until my Database System professor pronounces it a bit more like "Tadpole"

Yay Blogger! Or Chrome?

So for the longest time the blogger shortcuts didn't work with chrome.

These ones:
Shortcuts: press Ctrl with: B = Bold, I = Italic, P = Publish, S = Save, D = Draft

Which I found mildly amusing since they're both Google products. Well, at least on my version of Chrome for linux the shortcuts now work, and that makes me happy.

Oracle, the Fail Whale

Database Systems - a required course for all CS majors at the University of Central Arkansas. Cool deal, not a problem for me.

What is a problem, however, is Oracle's website. You can download oracle for free, for prototyping and self-educational purposes, which is sure nice of them. What is stupid of them is that they require the use of cookies to allow you validation to the download link, which means I can't use wget to download the file, as far as I know anyway.

And that makes Oracle fail.

Or it could just be the fact that I already have a headache and it just annoys me further.
