Halloween 2008- Captain Hammer
I'm back from my weekend in Kentucky. Plenty of good time with family.

For Father's Day we went out and saw Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. Now I guess I should see the other two movies. (I knew Professor Lupin seemed familiar but it's been a while since I saw The Island of Dr. Moreau.)

On my trip I finally heard exactly how I'm related to Lewis and Clark. Reportedly Clark is my first cousin six times removed and Lewis is my third cousin six times removed. I also learned that quite a few people in my family watch The Daily Show regularly.

I enjoyed playing around with the navigation system in the rental car. Definitely not a necessity but definitely a fun (and useful) gadget. The hotel was a different story. When I got back one night I discovered that the housekeeping staff had left the door open most of the day. Fortunately I hadn't left anything of any significant value in the room and all of my clothes were still there when I got back.

I got the latest preventative maintenance done on my car tonight. At least it gave me a little time to play the new Mario Golf game. I'm a whole lot better about preventative maintenance for my car than I am for my health. (I was supposed to head back to the doctor's office "in six months" a couple years ago.)

Computational Origami

That origami is extremely cool.

It's some of the most impressive origami I've ever seen. I doubt my origami skills would be up to the task (I haven't really done any origami since my high school classes.)

So now if I just figure out my exact relation to Lewis, we can figure out our exact relation to each other? Of course we'll need a Cray, but what the hell.

If you're a direct descendant then it should be pretty easy to figure. If he were your great great great great grandfather then we'd be ninth cousins. Add or subtract a great and it's a little bit different.

But I'm not direct, I think he's off to one side by a smidge.
