What if we could remember the future
What if we could remember the future?
More random tid-bits:
First, something that was accidentally deleted in my last entry was that I spent several hours Monday working on the BBS code for this site. But either my cgi-bin is still screwed up or I have something wrong with the code (probably the latter). Anyway, it's still in progress.
Second, I finally named my journal! Rather than the traditional "Aaron's Journal", or the extended "Online Journal of Aaron Suggs", or the minimalistic "Journal", it has now been titled "So it goes." This is, of course, an allusion to Kurt Vonnegut's Slaughter-House-5.
"When a Tralfamadorian sees a corpse, all he thinks is that the dead person is in a bad condition in that particular moment, but that same person is just fine in plenty of other moments. Now, when I myself hear that somebody is dead, I simply shrug and say what the Tralfamadorians say about dead people, which is 'So it goes'."
Ah, what a good book.
I'm currently listening to Fiona Apple's When the Pawn, which I downloaded from Napster. I highly recommend it. Right now, though, I have to go to an Odessey of the Mind meeting, so I'll have to pick this up later.
And by the way, I revised the design of my links page, if you care about that sort of thing.

* I found where I read this Hawking question! It was in Kurt Vonnegut's new introductions to the 25th anniversary edition of Slaughter-House-5. Ironic. [^]
