clive closer

(no subject)

This is one of the coolest, trippiest videos ever. And it has awesome music.

So, yeah, I'm running XGL with Beryl right now, and it's quite awesome. It means that I can run a movie or something in fullscreen mode, and then lower the transparency of say, gVim in front of it, so that I can code in MIPS Assembly and watch, say BSG, at the exact same time.

Also, in reinstalling Ubuntu, I fubared my Windows boot partition or something. Of course, the fact that it took me like two weeks to find this out probably shows how much I use Windows these days.

Sometimes it makes me sad to think that all the humanities majors I know aren't learning about ray tracers or pipelining, because THEY ARE AWESOME. But then I remember that they're humanities majors for a reason.

Also liked this week's BSG muchly. I shall elaborate later. (Still needs more Zarek, though.)
