I got mail from Software Engineering today which included basic information and stuff about courses and my real booklist with real ISBN numbers. Also included was a letter that I think is from my SE orientation leaders and it was written in markers. I guess engineers really can’t write.
Holy crap, I just noticed my team’s logo on the letter, Unstoppable Snails. It’s a picture of a snail with a knight’s helmet. And its shell has spikes. Like a morning star. Actually, now that I think about it, it looks like a whelk from FF6.
The Internets have been ridculing a Senator Ted Stevens for his reasons for opposing Network Neutrality, and in his statements, he described how the Internet worked.
They want to deliver vast amounts of information over the internet. And again, the internet is not something you just dump something on. It’s not a truck.
It’s a series of tubes.
And if you don’t understand those tubes can be filled and if they are filled, when you put your message in, it gets in line and its going to be delayed by anyone that puts into that tube enormous amounts of material, enormous amounts of material.
Personally, that isn’t that funny, but what he said before was proof that he didn’t know what he was doing.
There’s one company now you can sign up and you can get a movie delivered to your house daily by delivery service. Okay. And currently it comes to your house, it gets put in the mail box when you get home and you change your order but you pay for that, right.
But this service is now going to go through the internet and what you do is you just go to a place on the internet and you order your movie and guess what you can order ten of them delivered to you and the delivery charge is free.
Ten of them streaming across that internet and what happens to your own personal internet?
I just the other day got, an internet was sent by my staff at 10 o’clock in the morning on Friday and I just got it yesterday. Why?
Because it got tangled up with all these things going on the internet commercially.
What does he expect, that an entire Internet would take five minutes to get to him?
This is as gold as Bush’s “Internets”.
You know how things always creep up? University applications, acceptance deadlines, exams, projects, tests, summer, school, everything. Well, I have my G2 test on Friday (the 4th). I have this bad feeling I’m going to screw something up, probably something that only driving school would have told me, like when and how to check mirrors and blind spots, parallel parking, backing in, etc. So far, my success rate for paralleling and backing in has been steadily rising in the past day or so. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get that up as well as my front in, because it seems like everyone parks on the right at the end of the test at the centre.
Well, I guess you’ll all find out if I pass at Aletheia.
Given the odds, I’m quite surprised that I’m in Village 1 and that I’m in a double room with a roomie that I kind of know but not really. The fact that I have a double room means that I got my last choice, but the odds that I’d be in V1 were about 10:1, heavily in favour of REV, that place no one wants to go. Similarly, my odds of getting a single room vs double in V1 were about 10:1 as well.
Well, at least I’m in East 3, which is as close as I can get to my classes without being in UW Place.
