New Grill! I’m an “egg”head!
After reading several reviews on the web, and getting inspired by a [co-worker](http://www.seanalexander.com/2006/09/05/LaborDayBBQMeetsTechWizardry.aspx), I decided to buy a new grill. And I’ve eschewed the propane tank forever. I bought a [Big Green Egg](http://www.biggreenegg.com/) from [Thompson’s Hearth & Home](http://www.thompsonshearth.com/bbq.htm) in Issaquah. This thing is a beast! Tips the scales at over 140 pounds, and I can’t […]
Texas A&M in the Sweet 16!
Texas A&M today beat Louisville [72-69](http://msn.foxsports.com/cbk/story/6578094) to get to the Sweet 16 for the first time since 1980. Wow. Three years ago they went winless in the Big XII.
Big Changes in the Big 12?
Browsing CNN last night led me to this article about the Arkansas coach (whose name is Houston Nutt; insert humor here) forcing his players to wear pink when they goofed-off. The coaching team stopped this after people made some claims that the breast cancer support would be offended by this. Up to this point, the […]
some people are dumb, others are brilliant
Read first about the dumb guy who wrote into the university newspaper. I don't know why our TAMU logo only belongs on maroon. Apparently, Danny doesn't either. Here's his response: From: Ledbetter, Daniel Sent: Tuesday, April 13, 2004 2:39 PM To: 'email@example.com' Subject: Repsonse: A&M logo belongs on maroon only Dear Editor, I am writing […]
nasa responds (not directly, but, well)
Back in February I posted my nasa deep thought about why they didn't put blowers/wipers on the mars rovers… I got to ask one of the NASA scientists during a talk recently at Texas A&M, and then this morning I pull up CNN. There's an article about the rovers getting their lives extended. Then there […]
the sweet smell of… dumpsters?
There's really nothing better than the weather has been the last few days. Mid-70's, not a cloud in the sky, a little breeze. So, everyone wanders around campus a little slower than usual because everyone wants to enjoy the wonderful weather. So, like everyone else, I'm walking across campus. There's nothing like walking behind someone […]
Hooray for Ring Day!
Well, yesterday was Aggie Ring Day, and I finally got my ring. Yes, it says Class of 2002. Yes, I'm old. No, I don't care that I'm old. I'm told that I am the cranky old guy on the street. To quote Jeff, I could often be found yelling “You kids get off my lawn!”. […]
Well, as I mentioned the other day, the USAF Thunderbirds came to TAMU today. The show was pretty awesome. I took pictures of them a couple times: coming in and landing, the practice session, the Thunderbirds parked at night, and the actual show. I think the practice session was a little better than the actual […]
so that was fun
Well, that was fun.. Or not. For those of you not in the B/CS area, we just went through a 5 hour power outage. Not just a neighborhood outage, but both cities, as well as Texas A&M. The outage reportedly went all the way to Waco, and east to the Texas/Louisiana border. Crazy stuff. Local […]
nothing majorly new to report from here. same old, same old. I did get to see a forum with Madeleine Albright speak yesterday as part of the MSC Wiley Lecture Series. It was a bit shorter than I expected, but it was very interesting none the less. She's quite an amazing person. Oh, I get […]
