Yeah, so the package that I ordered on August 2 finally came today. The funny thing is they said it shipped twice, although I only got a tracking number on the second go-around. Smelled sort of fishy to me. Anyhow, I got this letter from the president saying they were moving to a new warehouse and shipments had been delayed. No kidding! Over a month and a half is a little extreme. Oh well, good thing I didn’t need it, right?

I think I’ve got the incurable disease known as “absent minded professor” The sad part is I’m still a student! I breezed into my apartment tonight around 9 PM, changed my cloths, grabbed my PDA and keys…wait…where did my keys go? In the span of 5 minutes, I had lost my keys. Of course, I could just go out without my keys (suitemates might go out and lock the door after them), so I had to find my keys. After a couple minutes of looking around, I gave in and started cleaning my room, hoping to find my keys in the process. 15 minutes later I was starting to get worried. 30 minutes later I was getting very worried. Then I found them: in my nightstand drawer. Go figure. What a poor pathetic example for a human this Brian is!

Wow, my Computer System Design professor has got to be the laziest professor I’ve ever run across. He is supposed to teach us about this little microcontroller chip, but what he does is copy and paste stuff from the 500 page reference manual, put it on his website, and then read it to us. And since he just copy & pasted, he would have to pause ever 10 minutes and go “wait, what does that do”, and then he would look it up in the book, and read what it does from the book. Arg! We graduated from 2nd grade, we all know how to read! Teach us something!

This Labor Day weekend was our annual Tarpon Springs trip. It was a lot of fun. It started out with miles of clogged highways going 3.5 mph. However, we looked on the bright side: we were not fleeing from a hurricane. We went fishing, but didn’t really catch that much (OK, so my Dad caught a 3 inch trout, somehow I don’t think that counts). But we ate lots of Greek food and walked the sponge docks and shops, which was lots of fun. All in all, it was a great relaxing time.
