First up: New Years Resolutions (not in any particular order).
- No more computer purchases unless they will be arbitraged.
- Focus -- learn to say no.
and lastly, finish your scooter!
Next, year in review. 2012 was one of the better years. I'm bummed that I didn't pull off any noteworthy hacks, but this year is looking good with KawaiiKart. I however did manage to sneak in a cool project, my GPU ray tracer. Sadly it doesn't yet use all four GPUs or photon map or <insert cool effect or optimization here>.
The coolest thing I did was actually in the way beginning of the year: I briefly drove a Porsche 911 Carrera GTS! It was quite an experience, from the euphoric engine roar to getting behind the wheel and driving it. I look forward to signing the lease in 2018...or 2019 if necessary.
Bayley and I managed to hit a practical wall in our arms race by going to quad socket platforms near the end of the year. (pictures will be coming soon -- these things are epic!) We're still waiting for various sales on Newegg and parts on Ebay, so they'll be done sometime before junior year ends.
In any event, happy new year!
