Damn, I’ve been planning on writing something for days, but I’m quite busy. Besides working and riding my bike to work (45 minutes to work, 1.5 hour total) there’s not much time left to do […]
This morning, I accidentally didn’t give way to another cyclist. His reaction: Make a snide remark about traffic rules. After my retort of the shape ‘You should pass on the left then’, he turned around […]
Wow, this blog is really dying. If it wasn’t for the hiccups (I hate having the hiccups) I might not even be posting this right now. Lately I’ve used Twitter more and more and I’ve coupled it with Facebook, which means that my nonsense reaches more people now, even though the messages are much shorter (“Cat vomit, eww” and “Bleh rain”, etc)
I wish I knew PHP, I’d like to tweak this theme a bit. Forward and back buttons between posts don’t seem to work properly. Oh well, it’s nice anyway 🙂 Edit: Oh, some thumbnails were […]
Last week, my contract was extended by a year! 😀 A year more of listening to Apple fans (= the 3 coworkers whom I share an office with 😉 ), improving and establishing a software […]
On May of this year, Gerhard Opfer offered a paper to the public in which he claims to solve the Collatz conjecture. A month later, June
Oops, got interrrupted by a Jehova’s witness whom I had to educate about confirmation bias.
Anyway, a month later, June 17th, he withdrew his claim. The Collatz conjecture is a bitch because it looks deceptively easy but cannot be proven by methods such as natural induction. Because it looks so harmless, many people, including lay-mathematicians (such as myself), have attempted to solve it. Mind you, the conjecture was proposed in 1937, so people have been trying to solve it for over 74 years.
Even though only friends know this is my blog and I’ve taken care not to mention my last name anywhere on it, my mother in law advised me not to post complaints about work. Even […]
I’m pretty happy that I’m working 32 hours, because even with one day extra off a week, I still seem to have too little time to do everything I’d like to do :O I regret to say that I haven’t drawn a lot lately, except for this doodle of a duck with square spots looking very surprised about two little ducks playing tic-tac-toe on its egg…. :S 😉
I like writing stuff on this blog, but I have to admit I have very little to report, except for one thing. I have officially decided: Designers can’t code. Don’t get me wrong, this is not directed at those designers who know they can’t write a program to save their life, because usually they won’t be hired to do so anyway.
Yesterday, I made my decision with help from friends who asked the right kinds of questions. I received a job offer from both companies, and decided to go for company number 2. I will start […]
Today I called company number 2 to ask them to make me a job offer. The owner said that they’d be more than happy to make me an offer and he’ll send it tomorrow.
Why did I ask them this, you may wonder… Both companies are more than happy to hire me, but both have pros and cons. Well, duh!! Yes, no surprise there.
