This is the entry of jake:
I knew when I wrote it that Jake has agreed to be my "virtual drummer"
was not as good as I salute you with a "virtual high five".
I recorded some Silver Surfer lines for Jake yesterday. My
rendition of the Silver Surfer sounds like some smarmy Simpsons
To give you the essence of Jake, I need only reproduce this
portion of an email he sent me, on the subject of Marcel Duchamp's
having secretly altered his Readymades:
will (who is also a fan) and i were discussing this a few weeks ago
and we got so worked up we stood up and shook hands, such is our
repect for marcel duchamp.

I'm back in the mode where I sleep from 6 PM to midnight, apparantly.
I'm going to be tired again by the time I have to go catch the

Also, I can get a personal loan at a 12% interest rate. There's
no deferment, though, I have to start paying it back right away.
If I get $2000, It'll be about $50 a month for the next 48
months. I can cannibalize the loan itself for $50 a month until I graduate,
then wipe it out in one blow with the proceeds from the mighty
job I am sure (I hope) to get after I graduate.

Today in the Times: "LACMA [not LACMA] Chief to add Role of Art Director".
Shouldn't they already have an art director?

Jake's story in his (unfortunately private so I can't show it to you)
notebook reminds me that yesterday I bumped into Tim from CS111 last quarter.
We talked for about 4 or 5 minutes and I don't think either of us
remembered the other's name. Is it normal to have a long, involved conversation with neither party remembering the other's name? Among engineering students, it is.
Tim is taking CS180 this quarter, but not with Gafni;
with another guy, who I believe is the guy that Adam fled to Gafni
from. Too bad. As I have previously stipulated in this space, Gafni rocks.
Due to the new version of perl running on sith and various FaultNIC bugs which were exposed by it, FaultNIC stopped
working. I fixed one bug but now there appears to be another, which
is in Scott's territory so I don't know how to fix it. It looks
like we'll be bringing out the musty old articles from the database
until it gets fixed.

Egad! The new lynx allows textarea boxes to be expanded! I can
finally get rid of that kludge in the notebook program that makes
the textarea 50 lines long if I'm using lynx! This is a great day for the Dominion!

I pinpointed the problem for Scott (a function that returns a sort
of "large object filehandle" is returning -1), but I don't know
how to solve it.
