Call for Banacartes

This year I am going to try sending out Christmas cards!
If you would like one, please reply to this entry or e-mail hsuwh[AT]hotmail.com on or before midnight CDT Wednesday 08 Dec 2004. Cards will go out some time on Thu 09 Dec 2004 and Fri 10 Dec 2004. If you're on the moon (we like the moon), or in Southeast Asia, they might go sooner.

Please supply your:

  • Real name or convincing alias

  • Mailing address (yes, even if it's in the TEUNC directory; as certain Neskimos have discovered, I am a lazyboy)


My mailing address:

William H. Hsu
Department of Computing and Information Sciences
234 Nichols Hall
Kansas State University
Manhattan, KS 66506-2302
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA


No UNABOMs, s'il vous plait; I am chock-full of atta><0rs this yeat, and haff not enerf time to reply.





Nasoengmo and Nafodermo: So, wondering what to do now that nanowrimo has wrapped up? Sign up for the guggle Challenge! Like Seinfeld and all good Flaubertian endeavors, we are famously about nothing. National Software Engineering Month and National Formula Derivation Month seem as good a way to accomplish nothing as any. Why can't an equation be for the moment and for eternity?



Eclipse was vain attempt to fight the forces of .NET... WHAAHHAAHA, a fading light in the dark...

Rather apropos for tonight's RP, don't you think?

And if you're the operator [of MS Exchange for Windows Advanced Server 2003], you say, "huahah, I'm the Devil!"

... your not supposed to ask people for cards... Jeez, you spend a year social engineering their address out of them and then mail them randomly. That way everyone is like : "awww, he remembered me"...

Once you have it, you go "gotcha" and (like my dad) put in Excel and then spend most of the morning figuring out how to mass print on envelopes whilst. And then, you either sit down and write the personal little message out or, like me try and build a Lego writing device (Mindstorms) (Hey, it signed the first letter of my name (in cursive) it broke down)... (I would buy a device that does this) (that way, I could print out notes on paper in my "good" handwriting via computer.)

So that's how it's done, eh?

Well, yes, and I have done that afore, but then certain Neskimos' grandmaternal units got a little nervous about the freaky netpersonnetppl sending cards! So.

Once you have it, you go "gotcha" and (like my dad) put in Excel and then spend most of the morning figuring out how to mass print on envelopes whilst.
Been there, done that, going to try something interesting (and, I hope, slightly niftier) this time.

And then, you either sit down and write the personal little message out or, like me try and build a Lego writing device (Mindstorms) (Hey, it signed the first letter of my name (in cursive) it broke down)...
Holy mother of crap! You had the same idea?! Oi.
Does your design look for the corner of the "page" so it can print on an arbitrary, printable flat surface?

(I would buy a device that does this) (that way, I could print out notes on paper in my "good" handwriting via computer.)
I would buy one, too.
And I'd fill it with nice brown ink and use a high quality paper (Southworth 20 lb. or better, preferably 24 lb. or something with an ecru finish). Yes, I confess - I am a paper whore! What's it to ya?

Didn't Thomas Jefferson have or invent one of these auto-pen gadgets? If we can put a man on the moon, why can't we all have auto-pens?!

They put a man on the moon
... or DID they?

Novus Ordo Seclorum, Annuit Coeptis, and alla that...

Whether or not they did already, I think we're overdue for a lunar landing.

I mean ol' Andy, knot Neil Armstrong.

This is true.
Us the U.S., not just humanity in general (of which China seems suddenly much more spaceworthy than before).

Not at all!
You do know you're already ON the list, right?

Is your TEUNC DB address up to date?

Consider it on the way!
Yay!

Sorry to hear about the triglycerides thing and your net withdrawal. I hope a diet change will fix the first, and I know I'd be shaking by know if the netless one were me.

I hope the kidlet feels better soon, too.
