It's coming…slowly

I elected to spend the evening (when I wasn’t talking with my family or watching TV and eating pizza) working on the next post in my Transportation in America (TiA) series rather than do the C++ homework the professor encouraged us to do before Monday (it’s actually due on Tuesday) or study for my chem [...]

I'm alive!

I am obviously a very big slacker for not updating my blog for the past week; and I’m also guilty of being a cliche (to quote Zander in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer comic book No Feature for You) because everyone supposedly starts blogs and then doesn’t update them.
