Pi’s Blog

My blog about Thunderbird and GSoC 2008

Seven Things

I’ve been tagged by sid0, fellow GSoC 2008 student

I have Internet access once again (until my ISP grows tired of me downloading so much source code for Gentoo)!

The rules.

  1. Link back to your original tagger and list the rules in your post.
  2. Share seven facts about yourself.
  3. Tag some (none? 🙂 ) people by leaving names and links to their blogs.
  4. Let them know they’ve been tagged.

Seven Things

  1. Not too many people know this, but I play the bass guitar for fun as of last summer.  I plan on it just being a hobby, but I can play several songs well including Iron Man (once my fingers are warmed up for the solo)
  2. I am on an internship in Minnesota but do not have a car.  As a result I walk when it isn’t below 0 (all this last week) and take the bus a lot.
  3. I take school and grades very seriously and barely hung onto my 4.0 this semester after some setbacks
  4. I survived for more than a week without Internet access in my new apartment
  5. Despite doubts from relatives and friends, I can cook (I did work in a restaurant for years), do dishes (I was a dishwasher at first), clean (I am a neat freak), and survive on my own without spending all day programming
  6. I’ve known about 250 digits of pi since 8th grade.  It started in 6th grade when I saw about 25 digits of pi in my math book and realized that I had memorized them after just glancing at the page.  I haven’t decided if I should try to break 1000 or not.
  7. I’m a big open source fan, especially after Google Summer of Code 2008, although I had been using Ubuntu for years and just started with Gentoo (now my main OS on my desktop and notebook) before then.

I won’t tag anybody at the moment since I’ve been out of the game for a while and most people I would tag have already been tagged afaik.

  1. When I was about 10 I saw 20 digits of pi in a book and quickly remembered them. I’m now up to 57 and I find it impossible to stop myself from learning more. All you have to do is learn one digit on top of what you already know and it just keeps on going! 250 is a long way off though…

  2. I’m the reverse of you, I first leapt into the Linux deep end with Gentoo for two years from 2004 to 2006, after that Ubuntu was a breeze all the way. 🙂

    /me recalls GCC 3.3.5.
