Beating Deadlines with Beat

Am swamped with school projects and a possible side venture, so here is some English Beat. I have to deal with some polynomials and lengthy math assignments that require Internet Explorer. The polynomials are not the trouble; it’s the IE. Rarely used that browser. On a brighter side, I’m setting up a website with a…

Dual Boot on my laptop!

I wished for those small computers, especially the ones that the OLF gave away.  I thought that the time for me to get one would be far away.  But I remembered:  Hey!  I can install Ubuntu on my lappy and set up the dual-boot with Vista.  And right now, I’m using Intrepid Ibex from my…

After a day of rest, I am ready to blog about my weekend in Columbus. It was a very busy weekend as I volunteered for the second year. I left Thursday evening, carpooling with Simon Ruiz and his wife Sarah. Simon is part of the Indiana Ubuntu Local Community Team and they are good folk.…

The Emperor is Dead, Long Live Lelouch

Weeaboo Alert! The final turn of Code Geass R2: Lelouch of the Rebellion is simply satisfying, a fitting end to this series. I do not know whether Sunrise will do a bonus episode wrapping up loose ends. It will help me figure out whether CC will finally be granted her wish. I think that Lelouch…

Want to get your own QR Code?

A QR Code is a 2-D matrix code. It’s more than a barcode: it’s a way for mobile phones to access more information. I made my QR Code so that a camera mobile phone with the software installed can access my blog. Kaywa has a QR Code generator and you can embed text, an URL,…

Final Turn of Code Geass R2 Tonight

WEEABOO ALERT! They already have the unsubbed episode online. But due to my lack of Japanese proficiency*, I’ll be waiting tonight. By that time, I’ll be ready with pizza for dinner. (But not from Pizza Hut. Sorry, CC.) *I know a few words, and I can recognize “onii-sama” [what Nunnally calls Lelouch– her “Elder Brother”]…

This Week’s News

Sorry I have not been blogging, as I was busy with my studies and tooling around with WordPress. Does any of you ever seen any British general election coverage on BBC?  There is this regal-sounding theme, and it turns out that it came from Rick Wakeman’s Arthur. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v04bLPgU2j4[/youtube] BTW, Pr McCain (not to be confused…

Thank you Martha.

I received a note of thanks from Mrs Wollenburg and I want to say that I appreciate that note. Since the Blog Purge, I’ve restored the tribute to Pastor George and I’m moving it to its own page on the static portion of CarolRutz.com.

Pfffft, I give up.

I’m dismantled my blog and starting all over.  I still have a copy of my SQL database, though. There will be more changes later on.  You might see some old stuff one of these days. In the meantime, here is the theme from St Elmo’s Fire.  As a kid, I thought it was boring.  It…
