Virtual Bubble Wrap

For some reason I want to dedicate this to Jenn.

Virtual Bubble Wrap

Be sure to try the "Manic Mode." (sound helps too)

Getting Your Dissertation PhinisheD

I found this site today. I don't know much about it, but I've heard people say lots of good things.
This discussion and support group is for you if:

You are sick to death of people asking you "How is your dissertation [or thesis] coming?" (but you really would like to talk about your troubles in finishing -- with anybody except those who keep asking, no matter how genuinely concerned they may be, or may seem to be).
You have vague fears about finishing, but don't feel you have a safe outlet for discussing whatever it is you seem to be afraid of.
You're having organizational problems or blocks.
You are not getting the kind of support you need -- from your university, your employer, your family members or friends. Maybe you don't even know what kind of support you need, just that you don't have it!
Face-to-face support groups offered by your university don't suit you, for whatever reason
You've been in this stagnant state of incompletion, and want to help those still plugging, or flailing.

And it might be for you if:

You are thinking about pursuing a graduate degree, a novice graduate student considering thesis or dissertation topics, an undergrad thesis writer, or another type of student or writer staring up a mountain that seems to touch the moon. If you can cull something from the discussion here, good, but the board's focus will hover tightly around graduate students writing theses and dissertations, who seem to possess some singular needs and fears.
You are a family member or SO who wants to try to understand the pressures.

Are you the gay governor?

'Daily Show' humor befuddles governor
Blagojevich says he didn't realize "The Daily Show" was a comedy spoof of the news when he sat down for an interview that ended up poking fun at the sometimes-puzzled governor.

Interviewer Jason Jones pretended to stumble over Blagojevich's name before calling him "Governor Smith." He urged Blagojevich to explain the contraception issue by playing the role of "a hot 17-year-old" and later asked if he was "the gay governor."

My blog works again!

So last month I was playing around with a hack of the PFF and it really messed up my blog.

Ever since then I've been trying to get ahold of someone at Blogger to fix it... I apparently uncovered a bug in the software that can bring an entire blog down. :(

Well, after meeting a Blogger developer on Google Groups, I was finally able to get someone to handle my request... and now things are fixed!!

So I'll start blogging again.

NOTE: I am also thinking about starting a new blog at my website that will be subject specific and will use WordPress locally. I'm pretty excited about the idea, but I have no idea what the subject will be.

More later...
