"Courage is not the absence of fear but the judgment that something else is more important than fear. The brave may not live forever but the cautious do not live at all. For now you are traveling the road between who you think you are and who you can be. The key is to allow yourself to make the journey."

What the typical American needs. I was giving this project some thought and recalled the tour I gave C.N. Le recently. Way back when CMU was heated by coal, all students were required to report to Hamerschlag Hall to shovel coal. I think there should be something similar today, though you can't make everyone do it, I think students should be able to volunteer to hop on a bike and help contribute some energy to the campus to power the clusters. This fits for CMU especially because within the Architecture department, there is such a huge concentration on environmentally friendly design. And for the students that do help contribute, I guess they should be reimbursed for the energy they save =].

Do you use emoticons a lot? I did a report on emoticons for Graphics Communication a few semesters ago. Did you know it was invented at Carnegie Mellon? Anyway some linguists are fearing that emoticons and abbreviations are having a negative impact on our language. Live with it... language is dynamic and why fear something that is more efficient? Though some abbreviations may have more than one meaning, that's only because it's still relatively new. I'm sure in time things will be a bit more standarized.

Oooh. After I pay off my credit card bills (whenever that comes) I'll get that bike I've been wanting to get... and then this. Now this my friends... is a reason to dump my Kodak DC265. Quality and packaging. Can I ask for more? Perhaps, but for now this is it!

Now for the fun stuff, hope everyone enjoyed the snow these past few days... look as though our alphas did with their 7' Lambda in the middle of campus. Awesome job... and check out these other snow sculptures hehehe. This one was built by Morewood Dormitory. Hahahah, get it? More Wood... oh man I'm awesome. This other one was sent to me by a friend from NYU, located over at RIT.

East Coast Brotherhood Rally in a few days... werd. See you all there... now back to work.
