I guess closing my gmail account didn't really help much because 70% of my emails still go to gmail.

(I just made up 70% because it feels about right.)

Hill -> hill 0 26 Sep 2017

Why the h does my phone autocorrect hill to Hill? I realize Hill is a name, but hill is a common normal word.

The hardest part of studying is overcoming the relatively continuous frustration with not fully understanding content. Eye opening.

Only two more classes this week! #parttimelife

User eXperience 0 17 Sep 2017

Sometimes people have a hard time understanding the concept of user experience (UX). So here's a non-programming example.

My work schedule seems to be working pretty well.

Newark Academy Champs 0 10 Sep 2017

We won the Newark Academy Invitational!

Notable strike against duck duck go today: They have ads that are not visually distinct from genuine search results.

Wrong password 0 18 Aug 2017

I wonder how disastrous it is, in practice, when I accidentally try to authenticate to one service with the password that I use for another service.

Example: I accidentally type my github password into instagram. Do the good people at insta log that, and would they ever attempt to compromise my github account?

Toothpaste 0 18 Aug 2017

Effort is like toothpaste: You can always squeeze a little more out.

Gas pumps 0 16 Aug 2017

Real World Solution 0 25 Apr 2017

In real life there’s probably a common-sense answer that involves lawyers and escrow accounts. But if you’ve ever read a crypto paper, you’ll understand that the right solution is to dream up an absolutely crazy technical solution.

Opening Day Again 0 22 Apr 2017

Saw opening day of the Somerset Patriots.
