Today must be a college admissions day, because I was just accepted to University of Rochester! Woot! 🙂

I just got accepted to the University of Waterloo’s graduate program in Combinatorics! (That’s basically theoretical computer science, and they’re really good at it in Canada :-D)
Note: We’ve changed how accounts are stored.
With tomorrow’s binary, your account settings will be reset (This includes your own alias, profile, custom host/port settings, and a few other things). Your account names and passwords should carry over.
If your profiles or other information are important, please get them out using today’s binary and paste them into tomorrow’s binary when you get ahold of it.
These changes were necessary to make some improvements in the account preferences, and should solve the remaining issues we were having with them. 🙂

Just so you don’t think Evan is some kind of wacko, check out this link to the Global Consciousness Project. They’re doing similar work, but on a much, much larger scale. You also can learn more about Field Consciousness Effect, if you’re so inclined. By the way, this was moved from the sidebar. Oops? 😉
So the theory of Field Consciousness states that if enough people concentrate on the same thing at the same time, order may be imposed on an otherwise chaotic system. To test this theory, my roommate will be running an app I wrote this evening at a basketball game, looking for correlation between intense moments of the game and abnormally high or low levels of 1s or 0s in a gaussian-random-number-generator’s coin flip. If you’d like to play with correlation on your own, feel free: Field Consciousness Test.app. [Edit: Application has been updated to also keep track of the longest string of 1s and of 0s in each set of random numbers.] This app uses a nifty open license 2D graphic framework from snowmintcs and an objective c gaussian random number generator I found here.
Now back to your regularly scheduled programming. 😛
