I’m sitting in Las Vegas airport waiting for my flight to Seattle and thought I’d do a post on what I’ve been up to this week. I’m headed to Toorcon Seattle which should be a lot of fun with good friends.
I got back from Nebraska on Sunday and went to the 702sportbikes meet on Monday. Someone brought a Ducati Sport1000. I’ve always thought of it as the third bike you’d buy simply because of it’s extreme positioning and unique styling.
I’ve been going through The Django Book for the heck of it. Which led me to grab the TextMate bundle, set it up for blogging, watch some screencasts, and create an iusethis profile amongst many other barely related rabbit trails.
I bought a friend’s Pepper Pad to use downstairs. I wanted to buy one when he initially got it but I missed out on that deal. Now I need to put together a list of all of the embedded linux systems I’ve collected and should sell.
I changed my oil for the first time on the car. I’ve always known how to do it, but lived close enough to dad to just let him do it. It went well with minimal mess… unlike that accidental oil change on my motorcycle (I swear it was an exhaust install).
I finished my Emurse resume and added it to the sidebar. I also put together an Eliot Stalking sidebar section with links to all of the places I’m active online.
Someone hotlinked my picture of a sandwich so I gave him a fat kid.
I’d also like to say congratulations to my high school friend Jenny Linhorst who will become an M.D. tomorrow.

I started using python when I realized that with SciPy, python has 90% the functionality of Matlab. Sure, I have a copy of Matlab at work, but why learn it when python can be used for non-scientific / data analysis work and it’s free and it’s so very extensible. I can only imagine django would carry over the same traits that got me hooked on python.
