A Sea of Cucumbers is migrating!

I've decided to move my blog to because it looks sleeker and I like the themes there better. Blogger has been great, don't get me wrong. If anyone's even still reading my blog...haha...I'm moving it here.

Time to mow the lawn

Oddly, it took me a few seconds to confirm that I didn't spell "mow" incorrectly...somehow it looked weird... Well anyway, the point is, I haven't updated my blog for a long time, and it's growing grass and getting moldy (ugh), so I thought it's time to throw a few sentences around and claim that I've blogged.

So I have less than two weeks till D-Day, and I still don't really know how I'm going to organize my presentation. At least I'm at a better situation now than a couple of weeks ago when I still had chapters to write. All the same, I don't think I can resume breathing and eating normally until D-Day is over. It kind of feels like I'm going to a match-making session in two weeks and I still have 20 pounds to shed.

ICSE 2007

Here are just some pictures from the 2007 International Conference of Software Engineering. Actually, mostly just the food we had while at the conference, haha.

Rude rude rude people

Here I am in Hilton Minneapolis, attending the 2007 International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE). Here gathers hundreds of smart, knowledgeable, and supposedly highly-civilized software engineers (or would-be software engineers). Despite the fact that we can do complex analysis of thousands of lines of code and that we have countless methodologies for soughting out tricky bugs in software systems, we simply cannot get our asses in the room for presentations ON TIME. As the talk is going on, people CONTINUOUSLY walk in, opening and shutting the door CONSTANTLY, and this about DRIVES. ME. MAD. I mean, why even bother coming into the room when it's well over 30 minutes into the talk? Why leave when there's only about 10 minutes left to the talk?? You've sat there listening to it for over 45 minutes, surely it won't kill you to spend another 10 minutes in your seat. Just STOP OPENING AND CLOSING THE DOOR for goodness sake!

Interesting facts

If you have some time on your hands and don't mind watching a hottie "teach" you some interesting facts about internet porn, check this out. ;) Very tastefully presented, in my humble opinion. And do keep an eye out on how they spell Malaysia. ;)

Read this.

On second thought...has anyone noticed that this kind of things usually only happen in backward countries? With this kind of thinking it's no wonder they're so poor and backwards, and I think they deserve to remain that way. Just my personal opinion.

Run run run

Do you know the feeling...oh you know, that feeling where it's like the sky is becoming closer to the ground, the air has become still, you can feel the prickle of every strand of hair on your arms, sweat starts to trickle down the sides of your head...that feeling...of impending doom.

Nah, I'm just exaggerating. While I am racing against time to graduate this summer, it's not really doomsday. It just seems like there are so many loose ends in my research that needs typing up. It's one thing to run a bunch of experiments, it's another to analyze the data and come out with a set of observations and draw conclusions from them. And it's a totally different thing to present so many thoughts in words in clear and organized manner.

Wish me luck as I continue racing...
