Re: The notation "a/bc"

I read "a/bc" as "a over bc" so it doesn't confuse me that much. I probably read it this way because I've been in a very similar situation as you seem to be in now. In High School, I took my Physics notes on my laptop, so I ended up typing a lot of math in OneNote which required ...

Re: When did you last customize your OS sounds?

Last summer I spent some time messing around with a Halo 3: ODST theme. I tried using some sound effects from it for a new email sound as well as the alert sound, nothing more though. I now run on a plain version of Windows 7 and Ubuntu, neither of which have been customized as I like to take my tim...

Re: Another case of "fired over Facebook post"

To add to the current discussion on whether or not a teacher should be penalized for a discussion in private that has been overheard, I would like to ask a counter question: Would a student be penalized for a discussion about a teacher in private that has been overheard? In my experience, the answer...

Re: Another case of "fired over Facebook post"

Oh hell, that just got me started. The head of the upper school (Basically, right below the Dean of Students, but in charge of the High School) was fired over something like this (which I just spent a while explaining in detail but then erased as I realized it shouldn't be shared). The official stor...

Re: Steam Hacked

Now, I also heard about this when it happened. It hit the blogs I follow quite quickly as they mostly focus on security, and when things like this happen they always advise changing just about everything...but I'm so damn lazy. I'll get to it eventually, but it really is annoying. I've already chang...

Re: Doctor Whom

My friend introduced me to Dr. Who the summer before my Senior year of High School, and since then I've been a fan. I love the story, the characters, and all of it is done so well.

Re: Occupy Wall Street - Spreading. Check your town.

I live around Philly, and I've gone down to DC a few times for other reasons and caught a glimpse of some protests but never had much time to stick around. I'm on break for Thanksgiving starting tomorrow and may drive into Philly with a friend or two and see if anything's going on there. I don't rig...

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

Well, here goes: I've been reading XKCD for a while now (since some time in my Freshman year of High School). Not much then, but I'd recently been coming back to XKCD now that I'm in college and I'm enjoying it more and more. The other day, I checked out the forums and loved what I saw, so I created...

Re: 0325: "A-Minus-Minus"

This is another one of my favorite XKCD strips, I just love the simple hilarity. I did laugh (out loud) the first time I read it.

Re: 0137: "Dreams"

I printed this out and it's one of the only decorations in my dorm (pinned up right on my desk next to where my laptop sits). I love this, I really do.

Re: Awesome Teacher Quotes

OH my! I totally should have joined the forums here sooner (or even looked at the forums sooner). I had been meaning to set up some kind of blog with just funny quotes taken out of context from my classes. I started writing them down in my notebook whenever I got the chance, here are a few: My Secur...

Re: My school fails at computer security...

I liked our schools security. It seemed as if the tech crew there purposely set it up so that people who didn't know how couldn't get past the filter, but anyone who really wanted to could. For instance, simply running Firefox off of a flash drive got past Websense (their filter) because the setting...

Re: Reactions to your Major

I'm majoring in Security and Risk Analysis with a focus on Information and Cyber Security. Now, that's a mouth full, so whenever I'm asked, I usually respond with either: Computer Security or Security and Risk Analysis ... (pause) ... think of it as computer security Quite often, people just respond...
