Lately I've been spending a lot of time developing a software project of mine which is designed to facilitate the algorithmic generation of geometric vector images. This is something that I've been playing around with for a couple of years now, and I've finally made it Free Software by putting it up on sourceforge here. Both the software project is rather sketchy, but as I like to say "it takes a sketch to make a masterpiece". Often I start things and don't take them to a level of completion, but I don't think this will be one of those things. My goal is to make the project something that will enable kids to learn about math, computer programming, and images in a playful manner.
Today I sent out a general invitation by e-mail to my friends to come have dinner with me. I have comitted to cook a big meal once a week for my household and often my room mates aren't around to eat the meal. I like eating with other people :)
My friend who's doing a masters in journalism at Carleton asked me if she could do an radio interview with me about "small life choices that make a diffrence to the health of our environment". I told her that I'd be willing to, and that I would ask my room mates if they would participate. As it turns out, all 4 Green Penguins (we live in the The Green Penguin house, penguin because it's the mascot for Linux) are going to be on the radio. My room mate and I sat down this morning to sketch out a list of things we do around the household to "make a difference". We will be publishing that website on our facebook group. Well, there goes my hidden identity. That's ok because I may just move this blog to my other gmail account under my real name because every time I log into the blog, I get kicked out of my personal gmail account.... I'm not sure when we'll be on the air, but I think the story will turn out well.

Well, maybe that title is a bit of an exaggeration, but I really did have quite a violent illness, like a fever or something. I won't get into the symptoms (I don't want to make you sick too), but suffice to say it was the nastiness sickness that I can remember. I'm just starting to get better today. Well, maybe I needed that butt-kickin' to remind me to take better care of myself.
Oh yeah, this blog.... Well, I'll start with something light:
You Are the Swedish Chef
"Bork! Bork! Bork!"
Your happy and energetic - with borderline manic tendencies.
No one really gets you. And frankly, you don't even get you.
But, you sure can whip up a great chocolate mousse
