Death and the Importance of Life

Posted 07-25-2008 at 07:21 AM by Medoria (Happy Life)
Randy Pausch died today. He was a professor when I was in college and the co-founder of my master’s program. He’s paved the way for some amazing things and inspired people from around the world with his last lecture (and book). The world has lost a great man today.

I suggest you take some time to watch his lecture - it’s about really achieving your childhood dreams.

Life is terribly brief- so embrace it with all you have.

When it rains it pours? So lets all go out and play.

So on Friday the bus that runs to my office didn’t come. I waited out in the blazing sun for two buses before calling a cab. The cab had the wrong street address so he took like an hour to arrive. I finally got into the office at 1PM. A bunch of the code was getting majorly refactored and they need me to help out on a part of it, so i started syncing to the subversion branch of the refactor, when pzzzzptt my computer froze and...

Ok, so I went to fix a database issue last night on the server and I thought it would be a quick fix – just update the MySQL version. Oh boy was I wrong. I used the package management tool to do it – forgetting that I had installed the packages manually before. It actually downgraded the database server and all hell broke loose. The next two hours were spend trying to undo what I had done amidst a flood of angry users and automated database error emails. Non-geeky content to follow ->...

We woke up like 30 minutes late because we were out at IHOP until like 3 AM the day before. Ken had been waiting in line for a few hours to get tickets for the Shokotan signing so we had to join him. When we got there, the security guard told him that we couldn’t come in with him because only he had been waiting. So, we had to enact plan B.

What was Plan B? Exhibitor badges. We had acquired 2 exhibitor badges so we used them to slip into the Dealer’s Hall 10 minutes early. Once...

We decided to get some glow sticks before the Shokotan concert and it ended up making us late, heh. We only missed one song, however, and when we walked back into the Nokia theater we were met with Shokotan singing “Cruel Angel’s Thesis” – cosplaying Rei Ayanami! The concert was awesome – she had the best crowd of anyone as everyone was on their feet cheering the entire time. She premiered a new song for the Gurren Lagen movie – cosplaying as Yoko! Definitely worth every minute of it.
