Good day. I just spent about three hours on an assignment for my Data Structures class that involved creating a Huffman code based on a text file, then applying that code to compress the file, and decompressing it to make sure you did it correctly. Turns out I did, but this was one of the harder assignments in the class. My algorithm works, but it’s incredibly slow, as a result of the codes not being sorted in size order. It takes ten seconds to encode and decode the constitution, and it takes more than ten minutes to do ten constitutions (a lot more than ten minutes). So I understand how to fix this, but having it be efficient isn’t part of the assignment…I know. This is me being a terrible programmer. But right now, in this context, I’m ok with that. Because I have other things to be doing right now. Like designing wonderleaguewill.com, and playing Portal and Half Life 2 Episode 2 before bed, in anticipation of the awesomeness that will be waiting on my computer when I wake up tomorrow morning (and I don’t have class until 11! So much awesome!).
Yes, Portal 2 is going to be sweet. That’s really all I have to say about it right now. Let me just see here….I’ve been listening to a lot of Odd Future, and I feel like it might be messing with my head. At least the metal I listen to has mostly unintelligible lyrics, so if they’re singing about something awful you’re probably not going to hear it. But Odd Future, though…most of their songs are sort of..I don’t really know how to say this…”about rape”, I guess would be a good way of saying it. Tyler has an incredibly evil sounding voice, and the beats are really awesome. So I’m into it. But I do occasionally wonder what it does to my psyche to listen to so much violent music. I’m not too worried, if it really is damaging me, I’m probably already too far gone from the months of Wu-Tang.
