Waves!

What if you wanted to know the actual physical response of a system of pods on the ocean, but didn’t want to spend millions of dollars on building a full scale model and hunting down deep sea storms? You could build a scale model and rent a wave tank….

Or, if you are very privileged, you could have your roommate write a complete physics engine and cycloid wave motion simulation model to do all the calculations for you! Impossible you say? BEHOLD! The user manual isn’t done yet, but if you are clever you might be graced with the sight of beautiful partial cycloids marching serenely across your screen as simulated thirty foot diameter pods are thrown about by gale force waves. Everything is modifiable, right down to the source code…
ahhhhhhhh

Edit: I’ve fixed a few bugs, but haven’t uploaded the new version yet. If you’re interested I’ll put it up, but this doesn’t get very many hits.

I want…

I’m back! Linux is in, and windows is submitting well. I have yet to get my data back from Gallagher, but I’m told it is safe. It’s great to have a clean system again.
For those who care, I’m running a Debian distro with KDE on top.

Edit: Several years later I’m still vacilating between Windows and Linux. XP is still working fine for me, but I’m expecting to migrate (again?) to Linux eventually.

I’m not saying that I lost them. Lord knows that I knew where they were. I don’t know why they never came out, their voices just died away and that’s the last I heard of them. People don’t fade do they? If you try to get away from them, do they just become fainter and fainter, until you can’t find them again? Like a dream that was real, but melted with waking, leaving a damp spot on your mind. What if it was the other way around? Did I fade instead? Maybe around the corner and up the stairs is the old life, where people still know me. Why is the world become so empty? Can God lose track of someone? Maybe it’s just getting closer to death. That’s all, death seperates everyone, because everyone dies alone. Is everyone alone here? Anyone?
Anyone at all?
