      And the answer is yes.

      I have to wonder if nostalgia good or bad for us.

      I left Vancouver exactly a week too early and missed the riots!

      At least I was there when they won game 2. That was pretty nuts.

      I guess if there's one thing Canada takes seriously....

      Just got home from Mates of State, and I don't think their studio stuff is ever gonna be enough for me anymore. :( I'm gonna have to just follow them around the country listening to their live sets. I mean, I seriously want to drive out to Baltimore next month just to see em again, they're that much better in person.

      Posted here because, you know what? Why the fuck not? :D

      so i figured i might as well post it here.

      the assassintion of jesse james - really good in the end, tragic. But the first 60% of so was much too slow.
      the number 23 - like pi, but suckier
      milk - LOUD film, but very good.
      chocolat - saw it with my mom when it came out. I have a much greater appreciation for it now. excellent film.
      the pianist - for this story, there are no words. brilliant cinematography and acting, set design, everything. 99% impressed
      there will be blood - piece of shit. just all around bad. sucky score, sucky acting, sucky writing, sucky everything
      avatar - great concept, great start, but way too predictable and kinda lame last act
      frost/nixon - tremendous actors, I was extremely impressed. Wonderful subject matter.
      atonement - horribly fragmented, brilliantly artful. by the end I was quite impressed.
      the messenger: joan of arc - I think I saw this before but it's not how I remembered it. very dark. liked it.
      capote - not the best subject matter, but for the most part enjoyable. ending didn't really keep my attention
      finding neverland - whimsy and tragedy are too rarely comingled. splendid cast and story
      gosford park - very strange film. came very close to having no plot. not sure of my thoughts on it just yet
      good night and good luck - very artful... informative. Cinematography not always up to snuff, and very short film, but I'd give it 8/10
      master and commander - I must say I enjoyed this far more than I expected to. not a single complaint to offer
      in the bedroom - hollow film. could have been much better.
      michael clayton - an interesting film. unique blend of genres. while it didn't quite captivate me all the way through, a very good watch
      the reader - progressed quite slowly, but a fine tragedy
      the queen - not bad, but not worthy of its acclaim
      traffic - ehhhhhh, a little exciting at parts, but not really worth watching
      the hours - by no means a favorite, but this film posesses incredible allure, and an odd, in explicable merit.
      sideways - meh.
      munich - i don't know. depressing. not very artistic... i'm not sure what I think of this right now
      mystic river - great film, but the ending broke my brain a little
      moulin rouge - i detested most of it, though dont entirely regret watching it

      i'd have been a 4.0 student.

      these courses are so damn easy. my earth science course just had its last class, and I saw my grade, and I only need 12% more to it to pass with an A. That's either a score of 45/100 on the final, or a single four page extra credit assignment.

      And over the next few semesters, I have like 10 more courses of the same level to do.

      im currently taking intro programming (almost PRE-intro programming, really), and as a stepping stone into the REAL intro programming, we're learning a little about programming in java during this last week of classes. All we covered in class was just some really simple shit like print, and variables. I was bored, and there was nothing to turn in for the day, so I started doing my own thing, something I'd been wanting to write as a windows batch script, but couldn't, because divison in .bats is rounded.

      So very quickly I wrote a little program (with help from google) that found all the factors for any number you typed in. I was having a tiny problem with it (I didn't know the difference between int and float) and so at the end of the class I asked my professor for some help and he said "this just isnt a very good algorithm. I've got to go, but I'll email you a better factoring algorithm that actually works"

      So we've been in email contact since noon yesterday, and I've been revising and improving my little program, never changing my algorithm, just the way it's used, and finally after I say

      I still think the square root method for finding primes is up to 46,300 times more efficient. Every factor which is lower than the square root will have a reciprocal factor above the square root, and there won't be any factors above the square root that don't have a reciprocal factor below it that you haven't already found. So for large numbers, just trying integers from 2 up until sqrt(x) is way faster. For example, try factoring 999,999,999 on your program, and then on mine. You'll get the same result, but if you're using a netbook like me, yours will take a lot longer.

      to my professor and send him my polished program, he replies

      The programming classes at CCAC do not require students to have much of a math background. Your math background will serve you well in learning to write code. My example uses some algebra. What you propose is an algorithm that is not typically used at this level of programming.



      ...


      I'm currently taking MAT090 intro algebra, which doesn't even count for credits at any tier 1 university. This course was a joke, and I guess this means the next one will be too. Maybe even the one after. I have to wonder if this is going to even be challenging at all until 200 level or maybe even 300 level courses. Sad. I really wanted to learn.

      TL;DR
      low level CS courses are way too easy for people who have actually used a computer before

      being unable for the life of me to able to recall why peter petrelli can only hold onto one power at a time, I started reading the wikipedia season synapses, and I only vaguely remember most of this stuff. I think I need to rewatch the first three seasons.

      Usually, I can keep a series perfectly coherent and cohesive in my memory, and recall specifically why any two events are connected, but heroes, being probably the first series I've followed from the beginning, ever, seems like a big jumble.

      Awww, reading the plot summary takes out a lot of the joy of the film. I'm sure I've said before that I think a film is best viewed when you have no knowledge of the events in it beforehand, but that goes doubly so for primer. Most of the experience is the confusion and mystery of it all.


      I was being lazy, but just added the tags. I try to tease, not spoil, but I realized from this comment I should prolly be more discretionary.

      If you meant the water in the background, it was just a jpg I used for the effect. If you meant the wine, it's several things. You have to make the liquid as a solid 3D object, and any texture you put on it is basically wiped over by the texture of the liquids container. Plus, a small amount of liquid like that wouldn't have a tide and wouldn't move or ripple, so it just ends up looking solid when it's rendered.

      Didn't mean for that to sound as blunt as it might have done, just thought that'd explain it. But you are right...they should develop some sort of program to create better looking liquids.
