No particular theme here, just some some pieces of my life from my past, present, and possible future and anything else that catches my interest.

Chaos Theory is a very important area of mathematics which can explain a lot of what we see in the real world.  A pendulum with one mass is relatively easy to explain mathematically, and it behaves nicely. However if you put another mass in there, it behaves chaotically. Technically, this means that if you change the starting positions only slightly, the state of the system a short time later can change drastically.  The weather is chaotic- a small error in measuring it today could be the difference between rain and no rain in a weeks days time. Watch these two pendulum systems quickly diverge, though they both start off with nearly the same settings. [more] [code]

Was there anything more entertaining as pulling back that metal slip on a floppy disk and letting it fling shut? This Floppy Disk Table will remind you of the good old days whenever you sit down in front of your TV. Slide the disk cover back and you’ve got some storage for remotes and coasters. You can buy one here if your inner geek is urging you to do so.
