  1. F is for Fibonacci

    (the synthesizer is actually a password entry form)

    I have posted a new section about Fibonacci numbers. It was supposed to be about how Fibonacci numbers relate to design, but in the process of doing research, I learned that a lot of everything having to do with Fibonacci numbers and design is questionable at best and bullshit at the worst. Instead I ended up exposing some of these misconceptions and focusing instead on the math-related aspects of the sequence. It's much easier to prove things that are mathematical facts. I hope you find my project to be entertaining and informative. This may be the last major update I will ever make to undefined.

  2. Insomnia

    I haven't been able to sleep lately. Heh. It makes me crazy. Things are okay though. I'm back in school since staying in school is cool and drugs are bad, so I'm taking math classes and stuff. Oh I have an exam in five hours, so it's time to start studying for that.

    You'll probably get a kick out of the new thing on F Sharp... it reflects my current mental state and employs some pretty slap-happy scripting.

    Oh, and you might not notice it, but I pretty much got rid of that invisible frameset that this site was stuck in before. AJAX is a much more elegant method of dynamic server communication. Not that you should care, but the site has a slightly more elegant architecture, and it should now be visible to search engines. The Chess and Sillyputty pages are now using invisible IFRAMEs since the code to these pages is too horribly done for it to be worth converting to AJAX. Between now and when I built these pages, I've had nearly two years of commercial web site development in a full-time business environment, so you can be sure that forthcoming pages will be much more well-coded. I apologize for n00bish PHP code that you can't see anyway! Woo hoo! Fun fun fun!

    Um yeah, that surely made tons of sense. I need to study for my music theory exam now. Ta ta!

  3. well it's been awhile...

    I've been kind of slammed with work. I plan to redesign undefined very soon... right now I have a review of the undefined posted here.

    You probably have no idea what that means. Anyway, the new site should look similar to that and be advanced to a new level of standards compliance. And there will actually be content.

    It will probably be stuff for geeks though since I am now a full time computer nerd. So probably no more videos of crazy shit, although you can still get the final Scream Team video here. (37 megabytes).

    Unfortunately, I doubt I'll ever be coming back to undefined. Too much has changed. I never expected to be making money out here. I never expected to enjoy my job. But the unlikely happened: I have a reason to stay, and my family is following me out here.

    Just a news flash. It's been so long I doubt anyone reads this old site.

  4. new town, new job

    Hmm, it's been awhile since I updated... nowadays I'm living in Santa Cruz, have a tiny room all to myself and work at a computer company doing tech support and programming. Life couldn't be better. So whatever.

    When this entry becomes visible on undefined, it will mean that the DNS change for the domain has successfully propagated and that the site is now hosted on my company's server.

    My friend undefined had been giving me free hosting before, and for that I am eternally greatful. My employers are offering the same, and since they're an ISP, I have a lot more control over my setup and it's a bit closer to home. (The old server was in England)

    As for updates, no guarantees for the time being. I'll try to get back to undefined when I have another break from reality. If you're reading this message and you aren't me, then you're about one of ten people who regularly visits this site... so ... congratulations. I just wish this had caught on more for all the hundreds of hours I put into it.

    Um... whatever.

  5. happy birthday to me

    Yipee! I'm not a teenager anymore. Is that something to be happy about? I dunno. Maybe it means I'm getting old and obsolete. I hope to be about a quarter done with life now, (plan to die at 81) and so far so good.

    I just got back from the Canadian Rockies road trip... it was amazing! And apparently I'm not half bad at photography. Check out the new photos page. Maybe I'm just full of myself again...

    So Monday is the big move. I'm not sure if I'll have Internet access anymore... Jesus! That thought scares me! I would take Internet over proper nutrition. So, guess I'll shell out $$$ for DSL and only eat Perkins and Starbucks every day instead of Aqua and Red Lobster. And I'll have to get a BMW instead of a Porsche. Too bad. Santa Cruz, here I come!!!
