Today's Fortune Cookie:
Hate is like acid. It can damage the vessel in which it is stored as well
as destroy the object on which it is poured.

Today's Fortune Cookie:

SPECIES: Cranial Males
SUBSPECIES: The Hacker (homo computatis)
Courtship & Mating:
Due to extreme deprivation, HOMO COMPUTATIS maintains a near perpetual
state of sexual readiness. Courtship behavior alternates between
awkward shyness and abrupt advances. When he finally mates, he
chooses a female engineer with an unblinking stare, a tight mouth, and
a complete collection of Campbell's soup-can recipes.
Trash cans full of pale green and white perforated paper and old
copies of the Allen-Bradley catalog.
Extremely fond of bad puns and jokes that need long explanations.

Today's Fortune Cookie:
It's grad exam time...
Inside your desk you'll find a listing of the DEC/VMS operating
system in IBM 1710 machine code. Show what changes are necessary to convert
this code into a UNIX Berkeley 7 operating system. Prove that these fixes are
bug free and run correctly. You should gain at least 150% efficiency in the
new system. (You should take no more than 10 minutes on this question.)

If X equals PI times R^2, construct a formula showing how long
it would take a fire ant to drill a hole through a dill pickle, if the
length-girth ratio of the ant to the pickle were 98.17:1.

Describe the Universe. Give three examples.

IB Physics Paper 2 was disgustingly nasty. Paper 1 started slightly easier than I expected, but got as difficult as I expected.

Paper 2 - did B1 and B4. BTW, what the fuck is the energy transfer over a resistor? Eh? And what's with the stupid British/European terminology that I've never seen before? Damnit, these things need to come with a dictionary.

Oh, and it sucks. Or rather, Mrs. Solomon sucks. Se don't get nice nifty sheets of paper saying that you're taking this IB exam and such and such WITH LITTLE STICKERS! I want my nifty sheets of paper with little stickers... ::sniffs:: They're so motivational... and pretty... and we get to take them when we finish with exams, which I do look forward to...
