And there it goes

That was it. The last exam of the semester. Differential equations; the hardest of the four. But it's done. Done. Done.

And hey, I got a free monitor out of the deal - it was sitting out in the hall with some other old computer parts with "free to take" on a sign". I would have taken all the stuff but I can only carry so much. And while a 17" CRT isn't the epitome of hugeness anymore, it still gets pretty heavy after a few hundred meters. In retrospect I shouldn't have brought my textbook and binder to the exam; I would have been able to put it in my backpack. But yes, now I have a "new" monitor. It's crappy, old, small, and the blue's almost gone, but hey. Can't argue with a free monitor. And I have it spanned vertically. YOU HEAR THAT CUBE?! I HAVE IT SPANNED VERTICALLY. Of course this is more a matter of practicality than anything; there wasn't anywhere to put it except on top of the tower; and having a horizontal span just wasn't working.

So, now I just need to get a video monitor and I can hook up the RF modulator (yes, dad, I bought an RF modulator - it was only 15 bucks; I couldn't help myself) and I'll have a third screen, albeit with somewhat lower resolution.

Anyone got any old video monitors that you're getting rid of?

Videos

So I finally got around to uploading some of my videos onto the Google Video site. There are four up right now:

House Walkthrough was a test video that I actually uploaded back in April.

The First of three time-lapse videos that I made back in the summer of '03

The Second time-lapse video which is pretty much the same thing, just from a different angle.

Time-lapse of a sunset, my personal favourite. See if you can spot my friend's face in the second frame.

All of these videos were made with a Fujifilm FinePix A200 camera. I built a thing out of Lego that would press the button every 20 seconds to do the time lapse ones.

I'm currently uploading an edited video of some explosions that my friends and I set off in February '04.
