Early last December, I traveled to London for a long-promised unicycling weekend with “the lads” and Meg. Sadly for me, I couldn’t ride during the weekend (brought the wrong unicycle parts — classic Rinker), but I still managed to eat delicious food, see cool things, and hang out with amazing people.

I listen to a variety of music, but the broadband genre called “rock” has long been and continues to be my favorite category of music to listen to. From soothing, soul-touching bluesy rock to head-banging metal, the genre has it all. And it’s a crying shame that so much amazing music is out there, but never makes it to the radio to be consumed by “the masses”. To counteract that, at least a little bit, here is a brief collection of my favorite rock songs that you might not have heard before. Plug in, turn up, and rock out, audiophiles!

Python 3 has been around for quite awhile, but I have delayed the upgrade from my 2.7 version partially due to a small fear of my code breaking but mostly out of laziness. Well, I have procrastinated long enough, and today it was finally time to upgrade. However, I wanted to still be able to run/test code in Python 2.7 in case some modules were no longer available in 3.5. The obvious solution from 5 minutes of Googling was virtual environments, but I had trouble finding an “Idiot’s Guide” to working with virtual environments in Windows with Spyder. Once I figured out how to do it, I felt pretty stupid, because it is actually incredibly basic. Continue reading “Dual Installations of Python 2.X and Python 3.X with Anaconda/Spyder”
There are two well-known groups of people in the world: those who plan everything to the finest detail, and those who refuse to plan anything at all. I normally fall somewhere between these two groups, but for a quick camping-and-unicycling trip to Sweden last fall, I hardly planned anything at all. To my surprise, the weekend trip ended up being quite a success. Continue reading “Unplanned, Yet Successful: Mountain Unicycling in Sweden”
Finally! After two months of living in Europe, I got to take my first trip outside of Denmark. Even though the trip was business-oriented (attending the 2016 The Science of Making Torque from Wind conference, frequently shortened to just “Torque”), I still squeezed in quite a bit of cultural experience. And where was this lovely conference, you might ask? Why, that would be in Munich, Germany, my good friend! Continue reading “A Wind Energy Conference in Munich”
It’s time for me to admit a truth. I am looking forward to the next four years with President Trump.
WHOA! Whoa, whoa, whoa. Put that pitchfork down and let me explain. I am an eminently rational human being, and I can explain myself. If you still think I’m a liberal heretic when I’m done, you can stab me. Continue reading “Welcome, President Trump”
It seemed simple enough. Get off the plane in Santiago on Tuesday morning, collect my bags, and head to the well-reviewed Santiago Backpackers Hostel. Continue reading “Best way to start an adventure? I think so.”
