moving away [Aug. 18th, 2006|10:50 pm]

[Tags|]

I have a lot to update, but the most important announcement first - I shall be moving over to elleve. It's not a rename; I've kept ymf for over 4 years now, and there's too much baggage lingering around here; it's time to move on.

That said, I know my entries aren't much entertainment, so unless you happen to have similar interests, don't feel obligated to add me eh?

On a side note: dear LJ, plz 2 b stop flooding me with support notifications already.

[Edit] I really am serious about not adding if there's nothing interesting for you to read, cuz I'm not nice enough to set up reading filters for your benefit!

shamelessly copied wholesale, including the links he'd painstakingly added, from allogenes. thanks much for the go ahead!

Computer Science 313 - Religious Studies 401
Christian Theology from the Perspective of UNIX System Administration
Spring Semester, 2006

Final Exam

Time: Two hours. Use the blue book provided. Using what you have learned in class and what you know to be true, answer all the questions.

[1] (a) Is God root? Why or why not? Could it be that God, as defined in Christianity, might not be root?

(b) What is the significance of being able to bind to ports below 1024?

[2] (a) The question "when did Jesus know that he was God" is a much debated topic in theology. Is Jesus what happens when God does not log in to the universe as root? Discuss.

(b) How does sudo affect your answer to part (a).

[3] (a) Is the universe proprietary or does God support Open Source? Cite specific evidence.

(b) Does someone like Pat Robertson believe that God supports the Open Source movement? Why or why not?

(c) How does your answer to (a) affect your view of science? Specifically refer to the work of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.

(d) Relate the above to the notion of the "Book of Nature?" How does this relate to "the UNIX philosophy?"

[4] (a) Is evolution equivalent to executing (as root):
   $ life -r 
(b) Are humans allowed to execute:
   $ sudo life -r
[5] (a) In the Vulgate, Genesis begins "in principio creavit Deus caelum et terram" which is usually translated "In the beginning God created heaven and earth." The Jewish Publication Society's translation of the Tanakh begins "When God began to create heaven and earth..." Discuss the linguistic presupposition and the notion of creation ex nihilo. What does this say about the possibility of multiple universes?

(b) Does God run VMware? Or partition?

(c) Assuming that one might answer part (b) in the affirmative, did we have the misfortune to find ourselves in a Microsoft Windows partition? Is this a form of Gnosticism? Refer specifically to the Apocryphon of John from Nag Hammadi.

Happy National Day [Aug. 9th, 2006|08:12 pm]

I don't care if you call them propaganda, but those were the songs I grew up singing and I happen to like them.

Funny too that I remember the pledge best by the song version. I used to get teased by my classmates for standing too straight during pledge-taking; I hadn't outgrown my NPCC training, actually not even until now.

I realized that it's been over 6 months since I sung the national anthem. Our exco of 8 had 4 foreigners, which left only Royston, Zi Rui, Nurain and I to sing the anthem and take the pledge. It was always kinda odd, bracing yourself to sing when there were so few voices behind the podium.

math help [Aug. 9th, 2006|03:31 pm]

[Tags|, , ]

I read this explanation in my sister's assessment book and couldn't quite figure out the jump from the second to third line, ie. why "99...9" is taken as "m". Any help, please? And I do apologize for the scrawl - I was trying as hard as possible not to touch the screen with the stylus, for lack of a screen protector.

To prove that if the sum of all the digits of a number is divisible by 3 or 9, the number is divisible by 3 or 9.

Uh that was only the first part, so if you do want the whole thing, let me know? x=

uncultured [Aug. 9th, 2006|12:42 am]

When I've got the money...

  • I'll join everyone else and order lots BPAL stuff!
  • buy the bloody screen protector for my tablet (though that really should be the highest on a priority list, but who says the list is in order of priority!)
  • get green nail art for my nails! //now I really am beginning to sound silly
  • try the uberburger!
okay I forgot what else there was. But better to have a short list, non?

On the other news... I decided that Guitarissimo is just not my thing. I dragged Dongies down to schol with me tonight, for the free concert-cum-workshop by the Singapore Guitar Quartet. Don't get me wrong, the pieces were quite interesting albeit abrupt at times, but I just lack the attention span! The melody must keep changing, and be significantly different from previous melodies to keep me interested. I ended up very restless and impatient (sorry Dongs!). That's quite sad, really. I was hoping to become more refined and cultured, artistically.

I decided a while back too, that I'm not that fond of literature, at least not the likes of Shakespeare and lengthy poems. I don't regret disliking Shakespeare and poems, but all this kinda put me in a rather pitiable plight. How?

awadmancy [Aug. 8th, 2006|02:26 pm]

[Tags|, , ]

bibliomancy (BIB-lee-o-man-see) noun

Divination by interpreting a passage picked at random from a book,
especially from a religious book such as the Bible.

[From Greek biblio- (book) + -mancy (divination).]

If you are having a hard time deciding between turning groupie and following
your favorite band around or to stay put in your accounting job, help is at
hand. Try bibliomancy. Here's the step-by-step method:

1. Pick a book you trust a lot.
2. Put it on its spine, and let it fall open.
3. With your eyes closed, trace your finger to a passage.
4. Interpret the passage as your lifemap to the future.

You could even add more randomness to the process. To do that at the macro
level, visit a library and pick a book at random from the shelves. At the
micro level, instead of interpreting a passage, pick a single word and let
it point you to your path.

Then you could try awadmancy -- divination based on words from AWAD. Focus
on the question in your mind and then click here to get a random word from
our archives: http://wordsmith.org/words/random.cgi

-Anu Garg (garg AT wordsmith.org)

I have half a mind to adhere quite strictly to awadmancy - ha! Oh and if you were wondering, I'd got "pergola".
