Ok, so my promise of more frequent posting hasn't panned out, as usual. But anyway, hi, how're you doing? I've been spending much of my online time recently at X-Forums, primarily the Something Positive section. It's fun and interesting, but maybe you shouldn't read it. I don't know what all I've said there, and, yeah, it gets interesting so, nevermind.

Attendance Tricks

My control systems professor today gave out a shirt sort of like a door prize. Interesting way to try to keep attendance up. Or maybe just a way for a professor to avoid having a garage sale.

Charlie Canola

Ok, until asked to take it down, I've put up a copy of the only published (that I know of) Charlie Canola Story. Enjoy.


I saw a shirt today. It had a guy in it. That wasn't unusual. Happens all the time. This shirt had something to say. That, also, was not unusual. It said its piece the normal way: a phrase printed on its front. It said: "It's OK Not to Drink." And I thought, no it's not, you'll die. From dehydration.

--Yes, this may very well be a sign of things to come. I feel I should update stuff on my blog more often, no matter how inane the update may be. Also, although this in no way matches or lives up to Charlie Canola, it definitely reminded me about those stories. If on the off chance somone responsible for the Charlie Canola stories, especially whoever actually has copies of them, stumbles across this web page, they should contact me about displaying them here on the web. For those of you who are lost, don't worry about it. Hopefully I'll get to show you what I meant in the future.

Life of Riley

NEWSFLASH: This weekend I disovered a new webcomic to occupy a short amount of time with: Life of Riley at I think it's worth reading, although I warn you, you may need to read the entire thing from day one, which can take a few hours . . .
