Goodbye, my friendchipx86Goodbye, Vinay

Wed, 04 Nov 2009 08:57:05 +0000

I lost a good friend Sunday. Vinay Venkatesh, also known as djgraphite, was a friend and co-worker at VMware. We had known each other for many years, since before he joined VMware, from the #adium and #growl channels on irc.freenode.net back when I worked on libgaim and he worked on Growl. Vinay was always helpful […](image)

Armed robbery in progresschipx86

Fri, 26 Dec 2008 06:04:46 +0000

Our Christmas this year was very nice, with lots of good presents, time spent with family, delicious food, and an opportunity to foil an armed robbery. Yes, an armed robbery. How do I continually get myself into these situations? While heading back home from my stepdad’s parents’ house, I spotted a guy standing in a […](image)

Racism, Sexism, and now Prop 8chipx86

Tue, 04 Nov 2008 07:34:27 +0000

I found out this evening, to my dismay, that my site was littered with “Yes On Prop 8” banners. Now, for those who live outside California and haven’t been following this, Prop 8 is a measure designed to introduce an amendment to the California constitution to ban gay marriage, basically ensuring that certain people would […](image)

Random friend seeking on Google Talk?chipx86

Sat, 18 Oct 2008 09:50:13 +0000

Has anybody else noticed this? Over the past several months, I’ve had a few people add me to their Google Talk account, claiming they want to make friends. The conversations start simple enough, asking basic “getting to know you” questions. Nothing seems too prying, and it certainly doesn’t seem like a bot. However, in each […](image)

I just wanted a hamburgerchipx86

Tue, 27 May 2008 10:07:38 +0000

What was supposed to be a quick 10 minute trip to the nearby Carl’s Jr. for a hamburger ended up with blood, police and arrests. I’m back home visiting my family for a few days, and my brothers and I decided to make a quick run to grab a couple hamburgers. It was about 1 […](image)

Sad Rainbow Plasma TVchipx86

Wed, 28 Nov 2007 10:44:02 +0000

I may soon be adding my plasma TV to the list of broken things, I fear. I came back from vacation last night after a week and now twice while watching TV, the screen has turned all rainbowy for about 2 seconds. This has never happened before and I’m hoping I don’t see it again. […](image)

Everything breaks :(chipx86

Fri, 16 Nov 2007 09:31:40 +0000

So.. My Wii stopped reading discs. Just as I came home with Mario Galaxy. It makes some pretty sad clicking noises and then informs me that I should join in on its sadness. I can’t say I’m at all surprised. I’m pretty good to my electronics. They just don’t return the favor. Let’s take a […](image)

Universal segfaultchipx86

Sun, 22 Apr 2007 06:47:35 +0000

(I’m sick today with a stomach flu and have recently consumed NyQuil, so this may make much more sense in my own head. I’m also not an expert in quantum mechanics, so please excuse any misconceptions I have.) I was reading an article about quantum mechanics and how many scientists in the field want to […](image)

Terror on Amtrak Bus 3717chipx86

Fri, 09 Feb 2007 10:44:35 +0000

This past night, Thursday the 8th of February, I journeyed home to see my family by way of Amtrak. It was a typical train ride, followed by what should have been a typical bus ride for the final stretch home. Not surprisingly, the bus was delayed an hour and a half. When it finally arrived, […](image)

Happy New Year!chipx86

Mon, 01 Jan 2007 10:23:18 +0000

Another year come and gone. Hopefully everybody is out having a good time or recovering from a good time. I just finished up for the night and am planning to get some reading done before bed, but thought a quick blog post summarizing the year was in order. This year marks my second year living […](image)
