I diy'ed myself an all-Canadian mic stand

 Hockey stick stuffed into a ski boot.  And duct-tape to secure the mic.

Now to start torturing the neighbours with the melodious sound of my voice.

5 am. Suddenly awake, sat bolt upright in bed. Eyes wide open, heart racing…

It had just occurred to me that the ssd drive on my computer that suddenly died a few days ago, and seems unrecoverable, had the keys to my bitcoin wallet. Argh!!! My bitcoins lost forever?

It took a few minutes for me to wake up enough to remember that in a moment of wisdom, a month or 2 ago, I did backup the keys to another drive. Whew. Disaster averted, calming down. I just wish I could get back to sleep.

You know how you sometimes buy an album for one song, and when you listen to the album you don't pay much attention to all the other songs?  And then sometime later one of the other songs will strike you, for whatever reason, and you realize that all along this song is actually much better than the song that you bought the album for in the first place?

That happened to me this morning with this song.  The instrumental arrangement building up to the singing is amazing.  They do some interesting tension build-up and release – I'm going to have to look up the chords to see how they do it.

Santa came early to my house!

A 2013 Gibson Les Paul Future Tribute and a Peavey Vypyr Vip 2.

It's going to take me a while to figure out what all those knobs, buttons and blinking lights on the amp do.

Elsevier is using DMCA to block authors from sharing their own work

Better to just publish in PLOS.

Elsevier is taking down papers from Academia.edu

Married white male desperately seeking:

An efficient algorithm to search an extended DNA sequence for motifs occurring within a window of a given size with a given frequency (in other words, an algorithm to detect motif clumping).

I wrote a brute force algorithm, but I'm afraid if I throw it at the e. coli genome it will kill my shiny new computer. To say nothing of the human genome.
