Bloggin' Day

Managed to get up at a decent hour, today, and since I spent much of my weekend napping, I've decided to devote the day to blogging, both here and over at the GDL cluster of stuff. Just so you know to visit regularly today.

Open and WILD thread, so pick any topic at all.

Can I have some feedback on the mailing list? ("There's a mailing list?" counts. I have heard nothing; all I know is that I'm the only one who's posted so far. Maybe it's that, as a full-time college student, I have more free time than anybody else... I have a test this week. That means less homework. This is how I plan things.)

Hey, I object to the implication that I have less free time than you.

I've sent something to the mailing list now.

Bronze Dog said...

I'll be on some of that, too.

MWchase said...

I average just over 3 hours of class a day.

Thanks for the reply to the list.

King of Ferrets said...

...damn. You do have more free time than me.

One of my friends is a year older than I am. During my senior year, I saw his class schedule on Facebook and was all "GAAH I HATE YOU!!!"

My classes are supposed to require extensive study. Whether they actually do is a question that... eh.

(By the way, thanks for reminding me that we need more people over at Launchpad. Thought: the contact team link would make more sense for occasional announcements, whereas the google group is better for discussions.)

Most of that parenthetical is basically moot, though, because nobody else has requested to join the group. At the moment, it's mostly relevant to the stuff that Lifewish and I were brainstorming, but there's no real reason not to do other things open source, if we're comfortable with that. So, sign up. Even if my directions for setting up vcs were confusing, the web interface still allows questions and comments, etc.

Also, I plan to be working on another project that is pretty secret and will be for some time. I sort of plan to focus solely on this project, but my plans gang aft agley a lot, so I'll probably be back.

In any case, the way schedules work in college is pretty nice. It's going to be even better for me this coming fall... No labs and two seminars. (My summer internship-ish thing seems to have fallen through, so I'm going to try to get a job.)

I did not manage my copious free time well. On the plus side, I managed to use the unit "a square mole" on a chem problem, so I'm happy.

MWchase said...

Scratch that. Cubic mole. Awesome.

King of Ferrets said...

Cubic mole?

You used a cubic mole?

So, what, (6.02x10^23)^3?

MWchase said...

Yep. At room temperature, reacting excess graphite with oxygen results in an equilibrium with approximately one oxygen molecule per 100 cubic moles carbon dioxide.

This was just an aside to a problem having to do with when reactions are product-favored.

For heaven's sake, when are you going to learn to make links?

MWchase said...

(Argh. I was right the first time, but for the wrong reasons.)

MWchase said...

I legitimately have a lot of work to do at the moment, but I did finally get around to updating the Doggerel Reference. The big thing right now is the copy of the index which will ideally link to wiki pages that allow stuff like tagging.

Anybody feel like signing on for setting up around 200 hyperlinks, overall?
