Weird Search Day

or "how I stumbled upon the URI! Zone"

  • what did the costco thief in herndon steal?
    Is this a riddle? He probably stole your sense of entitlement and high HOA fees (in bulk).

  • "african boobies" -saggy -droopy -ugly

    Everyone knows that boobies are indigenous to the Pacific Ocean, so any you find in Africa must be on holiday.

  • greek mythologist salary
    This sounds like one of those "careers that don't actually exist" which I probably would have wanted to be involved in for three weeks as a kid. Triton not get your hopes up -- A'Zeus suspect, you Midas well be a Pan handler because the wages of a Greek mythologist are Apollo'ing unless you Titan up your belt and forgo some luxuries. Most mythologists rack up a sizeable Daedalus they go on a quiz show and make Achilles.

    Review Day

    There are no spoilers in these reviews.

    Couples Retreat:
    This movie was probably just an excuse for Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn to run around together some more -- it's hit-or-miss with not quite enough ensuing hilarity. The movie also can't decide whether it's a comedy or a drama, and doesn't do a good job of switching between the two tracks. Overall, it's uneven but passable enough entertainment for a hurricane evening. The main downside to this movie was learning that Blockbuster has reimplemented real late fees for their movies ($1 a day after the five-day rental period) in addition to the fake "you bought it" late fee they already had.

    Final Grade: C-

    The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest:
    The finale of the Girl trilogy would have benefited greatly from additional editing, as the author seemed to be developing a Victor Hugo complex where he'd shoot off on a tangent about sewers for ten pages before returning to the story at hand. The feel of the book is also different -- there isn't really a central mystery that requires the reader to tie pieces together anymore. In spite of these issues, this book does provide a great sense of closure to the story, and the last couple hundred pages ARE polished and tightly paced.

    Final Grade: B-

    Namesake:
    This movie stars Kal Penn as a young guy who smokes weed, but Neil Patrick Harris is nowhere in sight. It's based on a book that Rebecca liked a lot that tells the story of an Indian family in the US over two generations. It wasn't a bad movie, but I don't think it was as deep an experience as it thought it was.

    Final Grade: C+

    End-of-the-Week Day

    I'm trying to push out some updates for DDMSence this weekend, so I didn't have time to write a scathing diatribe about pickles or turkey bacon to close out the week. I'm a little disappointed that H'Earlicane isn't going to get a little closer to us, since a weekend full of heavy rains would be great for getting work done while Rebecca travels out to Front Royal to help her cousin with a new baby.

    As a snapshot of my life, I've sprayed my lawn for mosquitoes, almost beaten all of the Starcraft II campaign on "Brutal" difficulty, am about one-third of the way through the fourth season of Dexter, and may end up at the beach next weekend.

    Have a good Labor Day Weekend!

    Review Day

    There are no spoilers in these reviews.

    Observe and Report:
    I have mixed feelings about this movie. It was not the type of movie I expected to be watching (kind of like having a sip of beer and finding out that it's fruity) but it never fully embraced the dark comedy style it was shooting for -- sometimes it felt like it wanted to be a dark movie without losing the audience expecting to see another Paul Blart: Mall Cop (who are going to hate it anyhow). Parts were good, but this movie was nowhere near as successful at being both dark AND funny as Bad Santa.

    Final Grade: C+

    More Joel on Software by Joel Spolsky:
    This is another, more recent, compilation of articles from joelonsoftware.com in Kindle format. Going in, I understand that most of the content is already free online, but sometimes it's nice to have a more digestible format than a web page. The problem with this collection is that it's pure shovelware: people may not notice if you use the same three paragraph example in two articles written two years apart, but when you stick them next to each other in book format, it just feels sloppy and unreviewed. A few too many articles center around the author's company and products as well -- these are obviously good case studies which the author is an expert with, but can occasionally teeter on the edge of advertisement. There are some good articles in the mix, but a little editing for cohesion or a greatly reduced price (maybe $5 vs $10) would have greatly improved the product.

    Final Grade: C

    Moon:
    Like District 9, I enjoyed this movie much more than I expected after watching. Without spoilers, the movie tells of a space miner who has spent the past three years on the dark side of the moon alone without human companionship other than the base computer (voiced by Kevin Spacey in an obvious HAL homage). With only two weeks until he's sent home, he starts going a little stir crazy and begins seeing things that might not actually be there. Short and tightly woven (like homemade spandex), this movie was very effective.

    Sleuth Day Answers

    Here are the answers to my Sleuth Day challenge.

    1. Why are there two toothbrushes in the cup?
      Whenever I go on a trip, I either used to forget my toothbrush at home, or I'd put it in my travel bag too early and have to get it out to brush the last few times before I left. With two toothbrushes, I can pack one and still have one out.

    2. Why are there small gouges in the wall on the right?
      After I put toothpaste on the brush and start brushing, I toss the toothpaste next to the sink. Sometimes, the ridge in the cap chips a dent in the paint.

    3. What kind of toothpaste do I use?
      Colgate

    4. Why do I use this kind of toothpaste?
      It was on sale in bulk at Costco.

    Review Day: Starcraft II

    There are no spoilers in this review.

    The original Starcraft from the late 90s was Kelley Corbett's drug of choice after his discovery of beer and before his discovery of World of Warcraft. Starcraft II is essentially an evolved extension of the original -- easier on the eyes with new units and interfaces, but without anything incredibly innovative added to the mix. In this case, it's a decision that works, and anyone who liked the original will probably find something to like here (unless they have passed away in the intervening decade).

    Starcraft is a real-time strategy game, where you build and control a number of units from a top-down perspective and order them around to reach various mission goals, such as "destroy the enemy base" or "gather 10,000 resources before your opponent". There are twenty-six single-player missions with well-calibrated difficulty levels that will easily keep you occupied until you've had your money's worth. The plot which ties it all together is AMAZING, if you're 12, but it's enough to make each of the missions feel worthwhile.

    Gameplay is easy to adapt to if you've played any game like this before, and the game even comes with built-in key mappings where all of the actions are tied to a positional grid on the keyword (for example, the QWERT row). This has always made more sense to me than the "memorize the first, or maybe the second letter of the action, and then hit F to Fire, except when F is already taken so you hit I" approach.

    Also new to the mix from the Warcraft world are Achievements: bonus accomplishments obtainable for bragging rights on your online profile. These achievements are more more attainable and less tedious than their WoW counterparts, but you'll waste just as much time trying to collect them all.

    The other giant chunk of Starcraft II is the multiplayer aspect. I usually don't care about this as much because I have the skills of toddler when not playing against a computer but my limited exposure has been enjoyable. Blizzard made the wise decision to maintain a separate collection of units in multiplayer, so that future balance changes won't affect the single player game, which also makes the single player units feel more powerful and fun to play with. There's also a full-fledged map editor which puts the Warcraft 3 map editor to shame and requires a Ph.D to fully understand.

    The main failure of Starcraft II is the new, possibly improved battle.net. For a network that's trying too hard to be Facebook-like, they made the worst possible social design choices. battle.net is hard to navigate, full of menus and submenus and horrible sound effects and animations (see also, most Flash-based websites). It's tedious to maintain a friends list, and even more tedious to meet up with friends to play games, especially since they made the puzzling decision to drop chat rooms from the interface. Instead, little chat windows pop up all over your screen, one for each person you're chatting with. Thankfully, they dropped their original system of tying your account to your REAL NAME but there are still annoyances like having to be connected to battle.net to play single player (and thus, having to tell eighty people that you just want to play with yourself for awhile), and not having a way to be invisible. The final infamy is the fact that my handle of choice is one letter too long for their system. I thought 12-character restrictions went away with ColdFusion.

    Other than battle.net, which needs a catchy fail name like brittle.net, this is a well-polished, enjoyable package. The graphics and sound are top notch, and all of the little touches you would expect from a Blizzard game (like /dance making marines dance) are present.

    Friday Fragments

    out of time and out of clothes

    ♠ We're back from our quickie trip down to Emerald Isle, NC where we enjoyed the beach with Sam and Kristen. Mid-September is the perfect time to hit Atlantic beaches, since the beach is mild, the water is hot, and the kids are all back in school (except for the surprising number we saw on the first Friday morning who were obviously truant and/or home-schooled).

    ♠ Overall, Emerald Isle was nice, but on par with the Outer Banks, which are an hour and a half closer. Since I am still in the mindset where time in the car equates to time not at the beach, and not "another part of the vacation to be enjoyed", reduced travel time always adds bonus points, unless your beach is orange and foamy (sorry Virginia Beach, you are permanently off the vacation list).

    ♠ Plans for the weekend include a regathering of the long-inert Beer Club on Saturday night, as well as some continued work on DDMSence 1.7.0. I may also take advantage of our recent beautiful weather by staying indoors and playing Starcraft tonight.

    ♠ Have a great weekend!

    Museday Tuesday

    As part of this feature, which I started in 2007, I compose a very brief work (under 30 seconds) inspired by a randomly generated title from an online word generator. The composition can be for any instrumentation, and could even be a purely synthesized realization that might not be possible to perform in the real world.

    I work on the excerpt continuously for an hour and then post whatever I've managed to complete, even if it's a poorly constructed slum of a song supported by a foundation of droning double stops and abused tubas.

    Meretricious: (adj.) Based on pretense, deception, or insincerity.

    My Composition (0:30 MP3)

    This excerpt is written for string quartet and other sound effects. Other than the initial impression as I started writing the melody, the title adjective didn't really play into the creative process at all.

    Ghost Day

    Early this morning, at 12:11 AM, I was visited by the pitter-patter of ghost raccoons on my roof. It sounded as if each one of the roofing shingles had transmogrified into a scampery mammal (a scammal), raced up and down the length of the roof, and then on cue, ran to the corner of the house over our bed and rolled off of the drainpipe in waves. The duration of the event was two to three minutes, so I was solidly awake by the end.

    This would be creepy and something of an anomaly (not unlike reading ten Amazon reviews and not finding a single one complaining about the shipping rather than the product) if it had not ALSO happened five years ago in an identical manner.

    Why would ghost scammals visit my house every five years around the First Day of Fall? Will it happen again in 2015? Share your best hypotheses in the Comments section!

    Friday Fragments

    now seeking commercial partnerships to name your baby "Urizoné"

    ♠ As part of a drive to improve company morale (and to inure us to the day when the RFID chips are implanted in our armpits), everyone in the company is wearing a pedometer for a month. The competition started while I was at the beach, so I'm already about a week behind, but it is interesting to learn that my stride is two feet eight inches (taller than some piccolo players) and that I average 1.5 miles a day even when I'm not doing anything (once labeled by Tammy Hale as "the purposeful Uri stride"). It's an interesting diversion, but I do not love the device so I am not a pedophile.

    ♠ Based on the braggy CC: ALL email from the guy who's averaging 6 miles a day, I may never win the race to get fit, but I'll be at the front of the line in the race to get fat. Give me a call when there are bacon-meters that you can hook up to your esophagus.

    ♠ I am also transforming my crazy distance skills into two more trips for the month of October -- one to New Hampshire to help Mike (of Mike and Chompy) get acclimated to his walker on the occasion of his 31st birthday, and one to Blacksburg to visit the new nephew. The latter visit coincidentally coincides with three separate marching band events: MV Alumni Day, Band Parents' Day, and something called "Band-A-Rama" which foreshadows disaster -- nothing good ever happens when you put "Rama" on the end of words.

    ♠ For example, consider the word, diorama, which plants the seed of unpleasant, runny feces in your brain before germinating into the safer, less edgy, cardboard box filled with Scotch tape and poorly drawn stick figures that only gets an A when your parents do it for you.

    ♠ Speaking of the poorly drawn, I mixed in some extra effort in today's fragments column by bringing back the hand-drawn illustrations that thrilled one or more readers in January. This is to make up for last weeks' fragments column which only had 4 fragments, an act of exaggeration that might better be titled, Friday Fraudulence.

    ♠ There are no amazing plans scheduled for this weekend, but it'll be good to have some downtime before an already busy October. I may go to Costco and get some more of this delicious frozen grilled salmon that's even easier to make than spaghetti.

    ♠ Have a great weekend!

    Weekend Wrap-up

    We kicked off the weekend with a Date Night to the Mediterranee Restaurant in Great Falls, where we dined on three-course meals for $24 each, and I ate the best "seared" steak I've ever had. We don't head out to Great Falls often, but we both agreed that it looks rich and fake, not unlike the North Shore of Kauai.

    On Saturday, a Costco pilgrimage allowed us to stock up on lunch meat, soap, and shells and cheese, followed by a late birthday dinner with Rebecca's parents at the local Macaroni Grill (whose restaurants seem to be shuttering at an alarming Blockbuster-esque rate). Rebecca then spent the evening eating yogurt and salads with Annie while I barricaded myself in my home office and worked on DDMSence.

    We signed up for a joint Verizon package on Sunday morning, which means that I now have a cell phone for the first time in thirty-one years. This was less about getting a cell phone, and more about the fact that my land line costs $38 + $12 taxes each month now -- a plan with two cell phones is $25 cheaper than having one cell phone and one land line. Once this is all working smoothly, I might switch to FIOS and kick Comcast to the curb as well.

    The phone is currently sitting at home on a shelf, WHERE PHONES SHOULD STAY.

    We closed the evening out with some nighttime glow-in-the-dark frisbee, where I perambulated over five miles with aerobic steps, according to my pedometer.

    Mine Day

    Instead of composing a Museday and improving the world of serious music with 30 seconds of music that doesn't sound like fornicating porcupines, I got caught up in playing the alpha version of and looked up four hours later.

    Minecraft is an open-world, indie, sandbox game which is essentially a "digging holes at the beach" simulator. Dig in the dirt or attack a tree to gather supplies like wood and rocks, and then craft them into tools like picks and shovels to mine in the mountains. Each block you mine can then be placed, Lego-style, anywhere on the (infinitely generated) world. Craft a sword and attack a cow to get leather, then craft some armor. Combine coal and sticks together to make torches, which keep the zombies from spawning too close to you at night.

    This might sound boring as hell, and it probably is, but addicting gameplay is not held back by such mundane considerations. When you're mining out your little cave and stumble across a vein of gold ore, it's decidedly fun. (It's not quite as fun when you kill an exploding zombie too close to your masterpiece though, as a big chunk of your staircase will probably blow up with him, especially if you cut corners, little pig style, and built it out of dirt).

    The fruit of my four hours is shown on the left. It started out as a stone house on a giant hill, but I strip mined it, West Virginia style, both to make it harder for spiders to climb in the windows and attack me, and to gain more resources to build stone shovels. There are a ton of advanced crafting you can stumble upon, such as elevators and pressure plates, but the farthest I got last night was crafting a stove to cook the bacon from the piggy I killed (bacon restores health, real-life style, which is useful when a zombie attacks or you fall off your scaffolding while building your steeple).

    Some of the OCD Minecraft creations on Youtube (such as a complete scale rendition of the U.S.S. Enterprise) are insane, and there are plenty of helpful tutorials to get you started too. The graphics are atrocious -- I've pooped better textures than these (granted, only in a monochrome palette), and it would be a much more user-friendly game if the various icons had tooltips, but neither of these issues gets in the way of the fun.

    Final Grade: B+, If you like building things, the $13 price tag will give you at least that much fun.

    Review Day

    There are no spoilers in these reviews.

    Dexter, Season Four:
    The fourth season of Dexter is better than the third, but not quite as good as the second. This season finds Dexter juggling too many responsibilities and masks, and brings back some of the inherent awkwardness in Dexter's social interactions (unlike last season where he seemed more like a normal guy struggling to be a serial killer). The character of Harry as an inner monologue is a little overused this season, especially one episode where he inserts little sidekick narrations throughout, such as "Where'd he go?" and "Let's go that way!" but the story is well-wrapped from start to finish. John Lithgow is extraordinarily creepy, and deserving of his Golden Globe.

    As for the finale, in retrospect it was logical and foreshadowed well but we still found it a little unnecessary. It should make for a great fifth season though.

    Final Grade: A

    Bottle Shock:
    Rebecca picked up this movie because it was supposedly based on a winery we went to in California called Grgich. After finishing the movie and hearing no sign of that winery, we looked on Wikipedia to discover that the one employee who went on to found Grgich was not put in the movie at all, which seems a little spiteful. The movie is pleasant enough and far better than A Walk in the Clouds with Keanu Reeves. Plus, you get to hear Alan Rickman swear, "Knickers!"

    Final Grade: B-

    The Success of Open Source by Steven Weber:
    Since there are no more Girl With The books to read, this was my quick Kindle fix on the beach a couple weeks ago. This tome on open source is full of knowledge, but for people who need to know more about open source for their livelihoods -- it's much deeper than a casual overview of the subject. It's at its most readable when covering historical topics and the people involved, and exceedingly dry and wordy when talking about the legal and political aspects. I retained less than 2% of the final chapter.

    Final Grade: B-
