The more I work at the Student Publications building, the closer I come to having this be my future: Who Wants to Marry a Sysadmin? If you are not into at least one flavor of UNIX, this will make no sense.

PSone, the portable Sony Playstation. Even though they say that you must plug the system into a regular electrical outlet, you know someone is going to make a fat battery pack. Maybe even a base that will fit just underneath the PSone.

A giant development in the world of cybernetics has occured. The first true cyborg has been created. Based on a wheeled robot design (looks like a robobiscuit), but controlled by a few neurons from an eel, the cyborg can follow or flee light and move in a circle. This does not seem like much, but the implications are astounding.

The word of the day is conduit. Why? It sounds cool. Conduit: conĚduit (n.) A means by which something is transmitted The word of the day is used in the song Get Off by Bad Religion: Lascivious, it's all that I can think of as I drag my feet, searching like a diogenes, dangerous, the adjectives of the decade and of your alluring intricacies, I can see your green-screen mentality and I can feel the sting of it's consequence, and I know I shouldn't but it's too much to ignore, an emotion I deplore, every time I look at you, I just want do it, I can clench my fist right through it but I just want to get off rectilinear, this direction we've been heading never realizing we are on a runaway machine, angular, the momentum that does turn us one step further on our ladder, one more turn toward the east, I realize your green-screen mentality and I know it is shared by many more, I know it's quite impossible but I am damned to find a way to revolve the other way, every time I scrutinize I just say "screw it", we're on a ride down a blind conduit and I just want to get off

Though extremely technical, which we know I love, this article about neural network packet routers shows a strain of logic that is admirable.
