      How have you been?

      Sorry to pop in abruptly again, but I need a favour.

      A friend has been accepted into Oxford to complete a masters degree in neuroscience, but the fees are lots of monies :(

      Take 2 seconds out of your time and vote (peoples' choice scholarship). I'd be super-stoked. If you got your friends to vote too, I'd be even more super-stoked.

      By the way, I'll be stateside 23-1st June in New York, then 1-10th in Toronto. I'll be pretty busy freaking out/speaking at the conference in New York, and getting hammered- but if people are in the area, who knows, you may get to meet me! [email protected] is probably the best email address to email about that sort of thing.

      There's a light on this tree that won't light on one side... Santa said he'd fix it back at his workshop though. He'll fix it up there, then bring it back here!

      I almost feel bad taking tomorrow off.

      I am mucho excited.

      Why the hell does RT think excited is spelt wrong? Hmm, it didn't think it was spelt wrong that second time, but it's still underlined red the first time. How bizarre.

      See you guys online mehbe, hmm?

      So what's new? How is everyone?

      Someone want to learn about memory? I have a test Friday (that's your Thursday, past-people)

      It's interesting being here. Hard to believe it was always just a click away.

      Stripped profile down a bit. Better this way I think.

      I wish I could articulate my thoughts.

      Externalise.

      Inane.

      Insane.

      I have a general beef with you all. Nah, I love ya.

      To infinity, and beyond!

      My Infinity Mirror

      This is my baby, my infinity mirror. DEFINITELY the coolest thing I've ever made. The frame was taken from a clock I bought (I killed and ate the rest of it), lined with polystyrene/black tape with the LED Christmas lights strung within it (97 of them!). I bought the backing mirror custom from a glass cutting shop and tinted the front piece of glass so it became a one-way/two-way (whatever you want to call it) mirror. It's mostly finished now, the only changes I would possibly make would be to re-tint the glass better (nitpicking), glue down the inner frame, and spend awhile aligning the lights better. I'll also attach a better hook so I can hang it on the wall.

      Since it was made with Christmas lights, there also are various settings it can be set to (flashing, fading, twinkling, waves etc.), some of which look pretty cool, and some of which would probably give you a seizure.

      I actually have a nice video of an earlier prototype (which I've come to realise actually had better light alignment than the current one. I made some changes, added more lights in and screwed things up a little. Oh well) demonstrating all these pretty light modes, I just can't be bothered uploading it on youtube.

      I've been making this for the past wee while to distract me from other things, it's been a good project to keep me going. Now that it's done (mostly) I'll have to find another distraction pronto. Mass Effect 2 and university can't come soon enough.

      I don't actually want anything for Christmas, which makes me all the surprises that await all the more exciting!

      I think it's safe to say that probably won't happen, but if it ever does I'll remember that. :P

      Well, I fully plan on being able to connect. So, get a Game Boy. We can do the tradings. Our Pokemon can bring all of the boys to the yard.

      I feel the need to point out that I need a job not for the money to buy that stuff, although, I do need money, but so I will actually have something to do.

      Yes, I know I contradicted myself. I just reread what I said before. In my defense, they both were true at the time I said them. Seeing them many more times since then has got me to remember most of them including the ones who I named differently. How can it change that much in a day? I haven't even had the game sixty total hours yet, but I've already played twenty-five hours. At this rate, I won't even make it to rent Bulletstorm on the 22nd...much less Dragon Age 2 on the 8th...Looking around, I am tempted to go and buy the remake of Gold since that apparently has every legendary from every single game. That would be pretty awesome. Then again, the new ones come out the 4th...I need a job.

      You have to say them out loud to remember them? I usually remember them the first time reading their names. A few of them it takes facing them multiple times to get their names down, but it never takes long...Granted, I have recently played them and that's why their currently in my head. I assume you played it long ago. It's fairly safe to say that I won't remember all of them in a few years unless I do end up playing another one.

      I can name plenty from Gold since I finished that. I assume some of those are from the first ones too. Even playing Platinum though, I can't name too many after Gold. Mostly because I have decided to change every single name this time around. Also, the names of these ones are incredibly stupid sounding. So, I wouldn't remember them anyway.
