    What did you do over the holiday weekend?

    I created a mathematical statement parser, evaluator.
    It can evaulate stuff like -(2+x)^+sin(y)-(x/y) for given values for x and y.
    I'm going to be using it to create a graphing program and a vector field plotter program.

    What did the rest of you do?

    I slept a little bit, then worked on a 3D plotting program. The math behind calculating positions in 3D space is fun, yet aggrivating...

    Did that a couple years ago as part of a program to evolve equations. It had to evaluate equations for many sets of variables in short order. Kind of fun, and eminently suitable for clever optimization.

    I went for a bike ride on a remote desert trail. We ran out of water, and one gal started to get some serious heat related issues, so two of us raced back to the cars and drove out to rescue the rest, who were pretty dry by then. I had brought almost three quarts for a two hour ride, and had drunk it all. One of the quarts was iced tea, though, and I was sorely puzzled as to what to call it once it reached ninety degrees. It was......tea?

    The rest of the weekend was spent tinkering with robot things. Pretty depressing, really. Got some math working, but then I got some weird voltage swings that was causing my sensors to go haywire when the motors were running. I may end up spending a LOT more money to isolate the drive train from the brain and sensors, just to avoid this kind of thing. Took at least as many steps back as forward, and was pretty depressed by Monday evening.

    I went to space in my Jeep Cherokee and one of my doors fell off en route and I ended up in the Gobi Desert. I then had to trek and hitchhike my way across Russia back to London.

    I mowed my front and back lawns, trimmed hedges, cleaned gutters, took down storm windows and put up screens, patched a chip in my cement driveway and replaced a sprinkler head in my in-ground sprinkler system.

    I hate long weekends.

    I hate summer.

    When will it snow again?

    Re: What did you do over the holiday weekend?

    I watched a dumb movie - Pirates of the Caribbean - World's end. I wish the movie would have ended sooner, but it kept on going and going.

    Some of the people in the hall, left half-way through. I continued to sit through the entire movie with the hope that something interesting might happen.

    Then I spent some time swimming at the apartment pool. The apartment pool is nice and clean. Looks like nobody else is using it.

    I also tried cooking some chicken parmesan. It turned out to be real good. Between these things, I had about 1 dozen beers and watched old star trek episodes.

    Yes yes, so you keep saying.



    Why don't you just use the code I've already posted in the codebank to do this?


    No, wait, don't tell me, because it's so much fun telling everybody about it.

    I enjoy figuring math things out. I have rotation around the Y-axis, just need to throw in around the X and I'll be happy...

    Then I can start moving into lines and polygons... yay.
