Some of my favorites: "Plan to be spontaneous tomorrow...(except) in bed." "Think of the danger while things are going smoothly...(except) in bed." "You will read this and say....Geez! I could come up with better fortunes than that...(except) in bed." "First they a...

Re: "Travelling Salesman Problem" Discussion

While "traveling" and "travelling" are technically both correct spellings, I believe that "traveling" is more correct (and similarly, labeling, canceling, etc.). [Edit] So after further research, it looks like "traveling" is considered the American spelling an...

Re: "Emoticon" discussion

For some reason, the first thing I thought of after seeing panel 3 was that is a capital N in the Wingdings font; it's also U+2620.

Re: "Compiling" Discussion

With the code I'm currently working with, when I change one file, it takes about 30 seconds to compile and about 7 minutes to link. Painful. I've also, upon finding myself a user on a Linux system, recompiled all the basic utilities (even the compiler) from scratch, put it in my user directory, and ...

I once tried playing Mega Man ZX while trying to balance on a balance board, but it didn't work out too well. I can normally balance fine when I'm concentrating on it, but while playing a game I could neither balance nor play the game very well.

Well, it appears to be fixed now, but luckily I saved a copy at http://web.mit.edu/adamrose/www/fox_news_images_root.html.

And I have fewer than 10 posts, yes. Long-time reader, (less than 10)th time poster. =)

When I was in high school, my ARML team would always stop at McDonalds on the morning on the way to the competition. We were all allowed to spend up to $5; anything over had to come out of our wallets. We were given the full menus in advance, so we always tried to figure out ways to spend every penny.

This is a parody of "Powers of 10", which is a series of photographs from the atomic level to the universal level, each with a scale of 10 times the previous. Just google for 'powers of 10'. The first hit is pretty good: http://micro.magnet.fsu.edu/primer/java ... owersof10/
