Went to the COC's

Went to the COC's very enjoyable production of Verdi's Un ballo in maschera (A Masked Ball) last night, Mike and Tyla in tow. Lesson learned: when you are the King of Sweden, do not fall in love with your best friend's wife. I really can't stress that enough.

Okay. The photos from the

Okay. The photos from the holidays have been encaptionated and are available for viewing.

My sense of humour seems to be getting increasingly puerile with every passing year. Earlier today, a collegue of mine quite aptly referred to people who compulsively tune system performance as "knob twiddlers." I had to forcibly repress a smirk. Sheesh.

For shame, Mr. Wonka. For shame.

Finally, Tyla, pie has a place in my heart that toast can never, never fill. No.

So. There are new items


There are new items in the Upcoming Events section (down the right hand side of the page).

There's also a new Hart House Chorus Website, for those of you interested in such things. I managed to remain pretty much uninvolved in its creation, aside from contributing a graphic or two.

I've also started in on the first course of my part-time Master's degree programme at U of T: MIE1402 Experimental Methods in Human Factors Research. It is described as follows:

The course deals with practical problems associated with the design of experiments in Human Factors research, with an emphasis on the use of statistical packages and data analysis tools. Topics covered will include analysis of variance, non- parametric statistics, balanced and unbalanced block designs (including Latin squares), confidence intervals, etc. Stress is given to practical problems and the intuitive understanding of applied statistics.

There are textbooks! [1 2]

I still haven't captioned the photos from the christmas holidays yet, but they're uploaded. It'll be soon, honest.

Oh, there's a new entry on the "story of livesquidinabox.com" page. And this is pretty cool: Finding the Speed of Light with Marshmallows.

Happy New Year!

I'll be back in Toronto by the end of the week, and I'll be able to make some updates at that point. Maybe that'll will help to reverse my recent delisting.
