out and about

I went to see a bunch of friends (and some relatives) a week or two ago. It was a good time. I took a bus for about two days, played several board games that were new to me, went to see an incredible house/theme-park, and all kinds of other things before getting a ride home with some friends. I was only gone for about a week, unfortunately. I would have enjoyed spending a lot more time there, but I had to get back here in time to move out.

Starting next month I will be living with a guy I met through a couple degrees of mutual friends. We play board games together sometimes. After I get my stuff relocated, maybe I’ll get back out for another vacation.

I have been finishing up some old projects lately. I went through a pile of old computers copying all the games I could find. I kept the hard drives for now, and took everything else to the local computer re-use/recycle center to be recycled. I also made a slightly nicer gallery interface for the name charts that I generated a few months ago. I should really re-generate all the charts to include 2006 data, and to fix the unsightly long filenames, but for now I’m finished with it.

Not all projects have ended successfully. I killed an old laptop that I finally got around to taking apart. I just wanted to get to the screen, but by the time I did it wouldn’t turn on anymore.

Next on my list is finishing a write-up for a math problem that I started thinking about more than a year ago. After that, maybe I’ll have to sit down and make a new list.
