Well, it’s been far too long since I’ve posted here. I just changed the theme here, and enabled some snow, for the fun of it.
Things have been kind of slow for me in life, but I’m doing well. I’ve had friends over the past few days which has been quite fun. This Christmas I’m getting an Arduino Mega 2560, and I might publish the fun things I end up doing with that here.
I hope everyone has a great winter break, and hopefully you’ll get to see some snow (in person)!
So, I bought myself a Kindle Fire from Amazon.
Quite simply put, I quite enjoy the tablet. It’s just the right size, and isn’t skimpy on computation power.
I haven’t done a fair comparison of having accelerated browsing on vs off however, but I did notice that it does not like CloudFlare’s IPv6, but then again, most things don’t.
In general, it is a nice tablet with good battery life.
My only complaints are that it doesn’t include all the Google stuff, and there’s no 24-hour clock option.
So while this is just a quick review, feel free to ask questions in the comments, and I will answer.
(This is so short because I did it on my Kindle Fire.)
As you might have noticed, the authors of this blog have been very busy. We haven’t posted here in three plus months, and there may have been a lot of things we missed. We apologize for that.
However, there are always a few occasions that we never miss, especially the holidays. Whether you’re Christian, Jewish, or atheist, the holidays are a time of great cheer and fun.
Thus, we wish you a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hanukkah, a Happy Kwanzaa, or whatever it is that you celebrate.
Again, happy holidays everyone!
You probably already know, but as I write this, it is the day of the 10th anniversary of the attacks on the United States by terrorists. September 11th, 2001 was a day that changed all of America, for the rest of time.
What prides me about this country is that as a country, we did not strike back with the same violence that struck us. We instead did something good for the countries that were home to the terrorists. We sewed the seeds of democracy, in hopes that their lives would improve. Many people would have simply dropped bombs on the Middle East, but we took this approach of inducing peace.
This year as well, we found and killed Osama bin Landen, founder of the extremist group, Al Qaeda. While many people applauded his death, with many shouting “USA!! USA!!” in D.C. after news arrived of Osama’s death.
I’m glad I live in such a proud country, and I’d like to pay my respects to the soldiers that worked to defend our freedoms, those who just were in the wrong place at the wrong time, and killed by the plane crashes, as well as the families who lost loved ones 10 years ago.
We will never forget.

Of course, we’re talking about the season finale of life itself. Although shows are hitting their mid-season finales, namely Stargate Universe being the most notable of series in my posse at the moment.
This season, has been a great one, and since this is an awesome show, after the finale, the premiere is right there!!
Stay tuned for the final 23 episodes. However there’s not really a way to not be tuned…
Peace be in the galaxy.
Here in the Puget Sound, we’re having a stormy winter. We’ve gotten about 6 inches of snow, and we’re remaining below freezing all day.
My school district has cancelled school for today, and many students believe that we will not have school tomorrow either, as many of the roads are covered in thick ice, and since the temperatures are remaining low, standing water from melted ice is just gonna freeze back up.
On a slightly related note, I have finished watching all of Stargate SG-1. This puts me at having watched over 81% of all Stargate (if movies are counted as two episodes)
I will be completely caught up by the time Stargate Universe Season 2.5 comes around, so then I will just wait like everyone else for new episodes.
Ah, yes. Summer. No school, sunny weather, freedom. Let’s just scratch the sunny weather part.
