Still a geek

I haven't been doing much coding lately, so tonight I decided to whip up a program to play Boggle. In less than an hour (38 minutes, actually), I created a program that plays perfect Boggle. The folks at my favorite Boggle server weren't happy with me, but I don't care. I realize that a Boggle program isn't exactly NASA software, but the point here is that I had a creative idea, sat down, and whipped it out. It was nice to know that I can still use a computer to express myself when I want to.

You know you're bored when...

You decide to watch Breakin' (vintage 1984 fun!) just so you don't have to watch election results on TV. As if there are no other options in your life. You know you're REALLY bored when you see a guy in one of the opening scenes who reminds you of Jean Claude Van Damme, and you are compelled to fire up your laptop and do some research. You know you are setting a personal boredom record when you discover you DID see Jean Claude Van Damme, and this discovery fills you with joy.
