With some free time, I started to put a new design together. I sort of got tired of the old one, and hopefully the new design will be a bit more simple. Also, I noticed that my old site didn’t load at all in Netscape 4.x. So no more CSS or other fancy technology.

Finally! The semester is over and I’m headed home for a couple weeks before the summer term begins. Lots of time to read, build barns, and work on my projects.

OK, boys and girls! Step right up to get the new release of Simply KoolB. Today I prettied up some code, fixed some bugs, and generally finalized things. The Windows version (now in Beta 2) now has an installer and uninstaller (in addition to the zip package). I’ve worked out some bugs on the Linux version and prepared a bit more offical tar.gz pacakge.

So somebody has told me that Page 2 on my Physics 13 work is actually a copy of Page 1. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I’ve (hopefully) corrected this so that Page 2 is really Page 2 (quite a novel idea, huh?).

Today was the big day: the Great Navel Orange Race. The whole class was to basically build a boat to race across the UCF reflection pond, retrieve a floating orange and then bring it back. Our team was the first heat to go of like 15 or 20 (with 11 teams per heat). We came in 2nd place in our heat, which was pretty good. We took 4:40 minutes (we estimated 4:05 or something). You can see some CAD drawings of our design here.

Today I paid my dues to become a Tau Beta Pi member – I get initiated on Saturday. I also went a head and did my next and FINAL (do I hear hallelujahs?) WebAssign homework 13.

OK, physics homework 12 is up. Sorry it took a bit longer, but I’ve been pretty busy. Also, don’t expect me to be online or respond to emails this next week and ahalf as I’ll be cramming physics as much as possible.

Happy Easter everybody! After a really hard week, I finally got some time this weekend to kick back and work with Simply KoolB on Linux. After spending probably 5 to 7 hours getting everything configured, I was free to spend like 3 hours actually programming. Anyhow, I’ve got a alpha version up (I don’t know if it even deserves the name alpha quite yet…) If you try it out, let me know how it goes.

My homework 11 physics work is now up (and I’m not fooling you, either!).
