Up Early, Again
Posted in Random Thoughts
First watch, 5 bells (10:34 pm)

I was up this morning at 3:30 because I couldn't sleep anymore. I had a lot of extra stress heaped on me Monday evening and just couldn't get it off my mind. When I woke up, I just couldn't find a way to get back to sleep, so I got up and watched the season finale of 24. There was some distant lightning early today, but no thunder. The wind picked up shortly after, and was blowing most of the day, but wasn't as strong as it was so early.

Around 5am I tried to lie back down and sleep, but it didn't work. I just ended up staring in to space for two hours. But the good side of this is that tonight I should sleep pretty well. I've tried to stay up as late as I can (Lorien's not even home yet) so I don't wake up just as early tomorrow. Just had a couple of frozen burritos for a late dinner.

I also glued the silent switch back on to my iPhone. Stupid thing fell off when I was on the way home today. I very nearly superglued it down at the silent spot, a little dab of superglue sure goes a long way. But I switched it back and forth a few times as it continued to dry and it seems pretty good now.

In these past few days I've managed to get in touch with a few people I haven't seen nor heard from in years. Of course, not many people have had to track me down. I'm quite easy to find online. Perhaps that's not a good thing. Well, if I can't get famous, there's always infamy to consider…

Compute This, Wolfram!

Forenoon watch, 2 bells (9:27 am)

I've heard a lot of noise about WolframAlpha in the last two days.

Given that they haven't figured this out yet, I'm still on the fence…

WolframAlpha vs. Flying Spaghetti Monster
