A couple guys here at work have been working on some puzzles. They didn't like my solution to the 3rd puzzle, as they wanted it to be more math base and not like programming. Here are the puzzles:
Assume: a and b are positive integers. (I think this condition only matters for the third puzzle)
1. Given a and b, how do you swap the values without using a third temporary variable?
2. Given a, what is the function to make b = a+1 if a is odd, and b=a-1 if a is even? You are not allowed to use conditional statements.
3. Given a and b, what is the function to make c=max(a,b) without using conditional statements?

On all the windows machine I use, I have auto-completion turned on for the dos prompt. Apparently, I must have gotten that behavior from TweakUI, and since I always install it on a new machine, I thought it was on by default, but apparently not. (More)

Speakeasy is my DSL provider. Snurgle.org also uses them, so that is how I heard about them. We have been using them for a year or so, and the ten times or so that I had to open a customer support ticket, it has gone quite well, and fairly fast response time (within a couple of days at the most). (More)

I signed up with Citibank/Mastercard my freshman year in college. I used to sign up for stuff on campus quite often, as they would give me various free things, t-shirts, radios, $100 gift certificates, etc.  (More)

When I returned our Lingo VOIP modem, I asked UPS to get a signature, since I figured Lingo would try to say they never received it or something. Below is a picture of the signature UPS got from "L Manwiller".  (More)

Someone off-handedly mentioned on the midwives list that so-called "crack babies" are really mis-named. While crack is certainly not the thing to do, medical research says that it isn't any worse than alcohol or tobacco. There are a number of articles, like this one that can be found from Google(More)

Jonathan fell down one whole flight of stairs all by himself this afternoon. ): All three of us were up in the computer room, and he was happily exploring the floor. Then Jon said, "is something burning?" and I suddenly recalled that I had been making dinner. I rushed downstairs, and in my hurry, did not close the gate behind me. Jon continued doing computer stuff, and Jonathan continued exploring. I took care of the burnt lentils and started making some more. Then we heard three or four thump, bumps, and then crying. When I heard Jon run down the stairs, I knew that Jonathan had fallen down them (and not some other falling.) Jon picked him up, and I came too. Praise God, only one goose egg and a few abrasions on his head, some abrasions on his mouth, and a fat lip. Jon thought there was some bleeding in his mouth, but it stopped before we could look again. After he calmed down, we noted that everything he did was normal - nothing broken or funny. He can walk and pick up things, and all the usual. He does like chewing on the ice pops, though. Rather heartwrenching, I must say.

Someone from the friends of judy list wrote: Just thinking here, this morning the news reported that there is a mesh "screening" on the city/county building downtown because there is a hazard of parts of it falling off. The building can't be repaired because they don't have the $400,000 to repair it. Hmmm, just how much is going for the trial of our friend? Bet there would be plenty of money for repair if they were not pursuing this case.

I needed to create a floppy disk today, and needed to find RawWrite again, since my Cygwin dd seems to not be making it correctly. I found a nifty GUI version of RawWrite that is nicer than the old command line version. Sure, the command line works fine, and I am all for command-line things, and no mouse usage, but sometimes it is nice to not have to remember the command-line options.

Charles Finney isn't all that popular at my church, so hopefully I don't get kicked out for reading this (:, but I finally got around to starting to read Lecture Notes on Theology by Finney this morning, when I woke up early due to a cold.
I have only read the first couple of pages, but have found it excellent so far. (More)

When I came into work today there was a copy of the Financial Times, a newspaper I used to read in college but haven't seen in a long time. There was a front page story on John Kerry speaking in Massachusetts yesterday. I found a couple quotes humorous: (More)

I have been reading a serious of articles by Bob Kauflin, written for Crosswalk.com. I don't agree entirely, and I think he is primarily focused on younger people, those who like so-called "praise" songs, and don't like hymns, so if you do not understand that camp, you might not get as much out of the talks.
I also purchased a cd somewhat recently by Indelible Grace, and have liked a number of their songs. The lead singer, Matthew Smith is releasing a new cd shortly, and there is an interview on his web page. (More)

Dr.Anderson called and said that Jonathan's lead came back 9.2. That's below their threshold of 10, but still some, so he said to be careful, make sure we wash his toys and keep the rugs vacuumed and watch out where he plays. Jon isn't really satisfied with that and said he'd call him to see what he'd recommend if Jonathan's levels were over 10.

I had some boards made by Imagineering, and they are excellent. Currently, they have a $100 for 10 board special, and the second order is free, so I saved a ton of money by not using Advanced Circuits who we usually use. 4pcb messed up a board I sent to them last time, where their mask leaked in a couple places, somewhere around 30 thousandths. Their engineer was supposed to get back to me, but ignored my emails.
Imagineering answers the phone quickly, their process was very smooth, and the boards look nice.
