On A Good Day

November 30, 2010 Leave a comment

Today was a pretty normal day consisting of my normal routine being school, work, home. It felt as if everyone was reluctant to return back to school after an extended weekend due to Thanksgiving.

Ice Skating group pic

I haven’t been ice skating in a while, probably since last year. I like the coolness of the rink, esp when you’re going fast — its just the right temperature to cool you down. While I was skating, one weird thing I noticed is that I enjoy falling. Read more…

Forever Young (Tiesto @ UCF)

This past weekend was the best weekend of this year, by far. (all pics following were taken on a point and shoot)

I’ve been looking forward to this weekend for a long time and it surely didn’t disappoint. On Thursday night I started packing my bags to get ready to leave for Orlando the next day. Friday I was able to get off early thanks to some super awesome co-workers and hurried home.

Engineers Save The World (perpetually)

November 17, 2010 1 comment


warning: nerdy opening
For a project in my renewable energy sources class, my team and I built a gasifier. Not to bore with technical details; in short, burns biomass (wood/etc) in an oxygen depleted environment to produce synthetic gas or “syngas” which can be used to cook, run engines (generator, car engines etc). Specifically we built a wood gasifying stove, which gasifies…wood, and uses the gas to make heat to cook stuff. It’s a fairly simple design consisting of 2 coffee cans with holes drilled in them. Looking at the finished product, it doesn’t look like much — it doesn’t even look like it does anything.

Winds of Change

Yes, the title is a Scorpions reference. Along with EDM, I also like late 80’s and early 90’s music.

I’ll start this blog where my last blog ended (nov 2nd).

(11/5/10) Friday was the “Fall Festival” at my daughter’s school. It’s a festival that they hold once a year during fall where there are many activities set up for the kids, etc. Fun times.

Deadmau5 vs Snow White (Halloween Remix)

November 2, 2010 Leave a comment

First of all I hope everyone who reads this had a safe and happy Halloween weekend.

Friday night (10/29) I finally got enough time to finish my Deadmau5 head! Even though there are tutorials online, constructing this thing was harder than I thought it would be.

Anyway, after finishing the Mau5 head on Friday night, around midnight, I decided to take it out for a test run to a costume party (which happens to be 30 minutes away WTF!). I get to the place and its so dead inside I didn’t even bother going in. Friday night = fail 😦
