Map projections

On-topic for a change... :P

Die.net shows an interesting utility for graphing the illuminated half of the Earth at any given time. It's nifty, but the fact that it uses Blue Marble, just as the track map generator does, makes me wonder about how it can be integrated into the track program... particularly of interest would be the modifications to different projections, as we're restricted to only a carte parallelogrammatique in our output. They use ImageMagick, so we even share a back end... hmm.

Winding Road 2

Winding Road 2, originally uploaded by Titoxd.

I'll be posting some pics from the trip gradually.

Here's one of the ones I liked the most; I clicked on the "enhance" option in iPhoto '08 to improve the dynamic range of the picture, although I'm not sure whether I like it over the original. Anyways, enjoy...

Now, Natasha likes to pose for some reason... so here's a pic of her in her latest attempt to interrupt me while I'm doing homework!

The advisor won't enjoy this

The headline says everything: "German men are the 'world's worst lovers'"... and as mildly interested I am in seeing the prof's reaction to this article, I think it's prudent not to ask... :P

Now this one is just weird

Unicorn bride? Yes... because we all want to hear, "your bride looks like a horse"...
