So I believe, compulsorily and satirically, in the existence of this absurd world; but as to the existence of a better world, or of hidden reason in this one, I am incredulous, or rather, I am critically sceptical; because it is not difficult to see the familiar motives that lead men to invent such myths.

'No Croc Left Behind' to Help Evolutionary Failures by Scott Ott

(2005-02-24) -- After the recent discovery of two ancient crocodile skulls which closely resemble modern crocodiles despite 40 million years of evolution, the National Science Foundation (NSF) today issued a grant of $56 million to fund the new 'No Croc Left Behind' (NCLB) program.

The program, administered by the American Institute of Biological Science (AIBS) is designed to end the "soft bigotry of low expectations which has kept crocodiles mired in the backwaters of evolutionary progress for tens of millions of years."

Genetic scientists at AIBS will attempt to "aggressively hyper-evolve" the modern crocodile to "bring it more in line with Darwinian expectations."

Resume Experiments

The Robber of Zork sent me a system using ltoh and latex with some special make files to produce a resume in ps, pdf, html, and txt formats. I had to reformat my original resume to take advantage of the res.sty style. Below I've listed the results and a few other verions of my resume, formatted with other tools.

What I need to do next is figure out how to incorporate other latex packages with the ltoh system, like hyperref and html, so that the pdf's are hyperlinked.

A big splash

Yes, we're making a big splash with the launch of this site. But first things first:

Look, we don't really like people all that much around here. We don't invite or solicit participation or feedback. If you are really seized by a burning desire to do something around here, apply directly to the Robber of Zork.

I don't know what the hell I'm doing here. I'm adding this paragraph to the "page" I created yesterday, but I'm sure this isn't how it's supposed to be used. There must a bloggish mode for Drupal, yes?
