For the last two weeks, Google Wave has been an active part of student life for CS students. By that I mean, Wave is always open and we are always conversing. It’s the same backchannel talk you’d expect from students, except substitute whispering for typing. But there are some things lacking with Wave I’d like to address: Wave is still very crashy. Depending on the days, Wave will crash 0-50...
HOWTO: Revert to the Stable Version of Flash... →
Gut reaction to this headline: Churuya: “Kyon-kun! Kyon-kun!” Churuya: “There’s a howto on reverting to the stable version of Flash Player.” Kyon: “Stable Flash is an oxymoron.” Churuya: “nyoro~n”

You said you’d be mine 3600 seconds an hour every day Which in milliseconds that’s 43,200 times 10 to the 3rd So my friend Benjamin and I have a thing for Les Horribles Cernettes. And we stumbled across one of their live concerts on YouTube in class the other day. So that’s what I’m watching right now, and Liquid Nitrogen is the geekiest breakup song I have ever...

This userscript redirects you directly to the YouTube HTML5 Viewer I linked earlier, as well as replaces any links on any page you’re on with links directly to the HTML5 viewer,...
YouTube HTML5 Viewer →
In case you haven’t noticed by now, I despise Flash. I’ve been waiting for YouTube to roll out an HTML5 version for a while now, and the only thing they’ve been able to come up with is this tech preview. Not good enough.

Defensive Coding in Objective-C →
Lots of really great tips for Objective-C programmers; some of which I really need to start abiding by myself. Worth a read if you’re doing any sort of OS X or iPhone development.
“So what does this club do anyways?” I ask. “It’s less about what this club...– Minimalist Club explained by the sole member of the Minimalist Club. (Yes, I will be posting quotes from my writing project a lot for the next month. Put up with it.)
But the one that caught my attention most was this one. “Minimalist Club.” Oh,...– My Kyon-like self-based narrator (tentatively named $BOYS_NAME) in an excerpt of the excerpt I posted to the NaNoWriMo website last night.
