Old Papers

Every once in a while I get an email asking me about a library I wrote as an undergrad computer science major: MPIGALib, and a paper about it's application to the Traveling Salesman Problem. I always have to point people at my paper since it doesn't show up on Google, even after trying to contribute it to citeseer several times.

After a recent such question I thought I'd put a couple of links here:

- A link to my paper MPIGALib and the Traveling Salesman Problem.

- The source code for MPIGALib is at sourceforge.

And while I'm at it here's the work I did on the topic of Galois Theory for my mathematics Capstone.

- Galois' Gem A Mathematics Paper in which I explore the subject which cleaned up the question of when a polynomial is solvable in rationals or not, originally discovered by a very passionate young Frenchman.

Been a while

Haven't posted much lately. Probably because of too much work and not enough motivation energy to blog random stuff that comes to mind. I've been in Colorado the last few days, at the Kissinger family reunion. I've been interested in twidlywiki lately for the purposes of blogging. The simplicity of its approach is attractive to me.

So for a bit I will allow a little chaos to imenate from this site and link to the tiddlywiki blog I've been working on on jfet.net known as Bryce Land.

Some video

Here's some of my video of the end of the game. People stuck around and celebrated way longer than we were interested int staying. Well, that's probably because they're Italian.

Beach Bar

One of the many clubs within 50 feet of our Hostel in Sternschanze was a pretend beach with white sand tiki tourches and large cargo containers which were converted to bars. I got a little camera happy after downing a few .51l Weisbiers.

Fan Fest

The Waterfront

So Biancha an old PLU aquaintance came up to show us around the City a bit and we went to check out the city tours. Upon deciding that they were lame we wandered down to the water, and some ice cream and lime filled alcoholic drinks. This is right before that.
