Hi all! I don't know if I'm going to be sticking around or not. I certainly don't plan on making another portable. In fact, I only came back because I'm trying to make a website, and after thinking about it, I realized a layout similar to Ben's is what I'm going after.
It's at www.mideas.ca
, if anyone is interested. I moved from 000webhost to freehostia, but I guess the nameservers haven't switched over or something? They have according to godaddy, but something's obviously stuck to 000webhost right now.
I probably owe every single one of you my thanks though, my portable was a huge group effort. Even if I wanted to make another one, I really don't have the money. $8500 per year for tuition, $200 or so for books (Go downloading books off the internet!), and about $100/month in projects, which I don't mean to do, but just kind of happens. Also, over the course of my university education, I've worked a total of five and a half months. But I digress...
I recently set up an aquarium, is anyone else in to that? It's a 20g community tank, sand bottom, live plants, 2 golden apple snails, 1 apple snail, 5 zebra loaches, 4 zebra danios (2 longfin), 3 leopard danios, and 2 African dwarf frogs. It's pretty sick. One of my danios (Who was aptly named "Spaz") somehow lost an eye recently. It was just gone one day...
As far as things, they go pretty well. Mech Eng is pretty brutally hard as far as workload and material, but I think we're getting out of hardcore theory and starting with applications of things like Laplace transforms, partial differential equations, and whatnot. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. After I'm done I hope to earn me some money and then start my own company that will make all the things I think of. I keep a journal of them, so I've got enough to start a solid business right away already. Half of the ideas revolve around pot.
Oh, and Cennar isn't the only resident stoner anymore, to say the least.
Cennar, if you still smoke up, I'm working on a vapourizer that will cost about $25 to make. Screw $600 for a volcano, amirite?
I'll probably hang around for a bit in Forum 42, to catch up with all you internet people. What's my avatar nowadays... hmmm... to my profile!
