Thermal insulation of windows

An article on using bubble wrap, in PDF. Has pictures, looks really good. Found through.

On a side note (venting steam)

It’s really a bummer to be sitting this much sober on the night of the last exam of the semester, having done everything I should have had for today.

I don’t mean I should have gotten all drunk and vomited all over the place. But something more entertaining should have taken place. The movies, perhaps, or a good book, or vinyl.

I think I’ll go get some coffee.

Note to self: next time you plan to buy a beer – buy a beer, not some shitty shake, even if it costs less per unit of quantity. I mean, I drank 1,5 L of that stuff, and I feel nothing. It’s like consuming piss, “used and pre-processed for you!..”

For you, not by you. I’d rather D.I.M., really.

Marked socks

As I was sitting and sorting all my black socks so that they match, I thought one of those ubiquitous geekish clothing shops should offer custom-marked socks, just as they offer custom-painted T-shirts. With a different symbol on each pair of socks you would never again have to try and match 17 socks into pairs.

Believe me, that’s a headache, and an awful waste of time.

In case you were wondering – no, one can’t just wear a random pair of socks. We’re geeks, not nerds.

Then, when the sorting was nearing the end, I wondered if we could make a distributed computing project that would group socks. Utilizing a certain neural network, perhaps…

On the other hand, there’s always artsy folk who have one (at least) bottle of paint, one (at least) paintbrush and some (at least) D.I.Y. attitude.
