Just got a new computer, which is optimized to run some calculations. First, I think I’ll try to beat my personal record for calculating Pi, which was 17 billion decimal places in 2006. That attempt took a month to run. Then I’m off to run some weather predictions.

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
