The New^H^H^HRevisionism

I'm tying up some old, loose ends. It's going to take me awhile, and most of you probably won't notice, but among other things, some corners of my webpage are getting cleaned up, reexamined, and restored or removed.

It turned out that my BioInformatics midterm actually went very badly. I would drop the class if I could, but if I do, I'll have the pleasure of paying for the semester's worth of class. Free classes at CMU for staff can be a kind of a trap -- it's appropriate in that they don't want us to take the privilege lightly, but at times like this, with so much going on at work and elsewhere, it's painful. I will need to put in a lot of effort and do really well on the coming programming assignment and the final in order to do acceptably in this class.

Special:Randompage took me someplace cool on Wikipedia today -- to Bayeux Tapestry. A link on the bottom took me to a rather awesome creation someone made.

While in NYC, we went to MOMA, and I discovered Yves Tanguy, who is full of much awesome. I wish we could've spent more time there. I admittedly am more of the type to go to museums alone, because it is hard for me to plan how much time I want to spend there -- it *always* is either far more interesting to me than other people or far less so, depending on both my mood and what's actually there.

I've been having an oddly large number of moments of dizziness recently. I should probably set up a checkup with my doctor -- it's probably about time (My heuristic is that if any time I can't remember the last time I had a checkup, it's a good time to schedule one).
