I have been busy…

Due to the new job, motivation to do things after work has diminished, so I have done little work on the new site. I would say that it doesn’t matter because nobody visits anyway, however there are a few people that trickle over after reading about my friend Steve Cholewiak and my LED projects. Speaking of Steve, We’re both set to go to World Haptics 2007 in Tsukuba, Japan. I will be presenting a poster there outlining a paper I authored (with the help of 2 colleagues) called “Discriminability of Real and Virtual Surfaces with Triangular Gratings”. I will have a link to it after the conference is over for anyone interested. I finally got approval from my managers to attend the conference and booked flights on United. I’m happy to travel there on a Boeing 747-4xx and return on a Boeing 777. I don’t believe I’ve ever traveled on a Jumbo Jet or a Worldliner, so that will help satisfy my new found interest in commercial jets. Too bad the Dreamliner isn’t out yet (I guess if it was I wouldn’t have a job though).

On another note, I have finally uploaded content to our senior design project’s website (the Digital Real-time Intelligent Networked Kegerator, also known as the DRINK system). I decided to add Google Adsense advertisements to the site due to the large amount of multimedia that it will soon host. Also, what better than to read about a kegerator and see links where to buy parts. Unfortunately I attempted to make this page dynamic (on a very basic level), however the ads no longer correctly parsed the page for content, so until I find a way to fix that I’m left updating pages manually.
