I'm sure I used to know that the Macbook Pro Core Duo could only handle 2G of memory, but I just wasted a lot of time trying to figure out why I couldn't get my 2G and 1G sticks to play nice together. ::sigh:: I was really hoping to put off upgrading for a while, but 2G of memory is just not enough. I guess I need to get some sort of real job this summer after all. (Put your violin away right now before I come over there and break it in half.)

In other annoying news, some lady in SF is trying to shut down Slim's. I'm not sure why, given all the data, the police can't just dismiss these guys as cranks.

I'm feeling very bogged down with work right now. In trying to pick an advisor, I'm juggling work for three of them, plus my classes, plus everything else I want to do with my time. I'm hoping this doesn't last much longer, but I have a terrible feeling that it's a case of "the pain will end whenever you want it to". I'm debating giving up machine learning as a formal field of study and putting my background to work doing anomaly detection within reputation-based storage systems.

In happier news, I'm going to see Copenhagen by the Palo Alto Players on Friday. There is a light at the end of this tunnel, and it burns at about 300,000°C.
