re: weight loss

I was going to tack on some response to S when she responded to Deanna on the food journals, but she didn’t do it on the list. So, this is said assuming that you all know the basics of what the food journals are and why she does them.

I really got in to dealing with weight loss in high school. My junior year I joined the wrestling team and in wrestling your opponent is based upon your weight so it is important to have as little body fat as possible since if your opponent has less than you then more than likely the equivalent weight on him is made up of muscle. =)

ssh

Secure Shell (SSH) is a way of connecting to a remote computer much like telnet, but the connection is established over a secure socket like when you connect to a secured webpage.

It is a better way of doing things because with telnet your password passes in clear text over the network and can potentially be seen by attackers.

Gemini now is running a ssh server, meaning that you can ssh into it. Interestingly though if your ssh in you do not show up in the listing that finger generates. You do however show up in the list that “show user” generates.

For those of you who log into gemini you can use the “who fast” command that searches from “show user” rather than finger. I’ll poke at it some when school starts back and make it work normally.

RE: m

how is m doing? i don’t ever see him any more…

He has been on co-op since the begining of last summer. He is getting along pretty well. Relationships with women still have him depressed alot of the time, but he is getting more confident and his skills in groups have improved dramatically.

Subj: RE: [Cor] sj: failing

see myself as having been wasting much time. I don’t regret how I have been spending my time, so I don’t regret the grades that I have in the classes because it is a direct result of how I spend my time.

this is very honest. that’s good. you are acknowledging that your grades are a direct consequence of a decision you made several months ago. right? and have continued to make since then?

sj: failing

Sometime last night I was contemplating my gpa for this semester (which is going to be very low.) I have four classes: Programming Languages, Operating Systems, Probability and Statistics and Physics II. I am looking at A, B, (D|F), (D|F). If it comes out ABFF (which it easily could) then my overall qpa would be 1.75.

In contemplating what that would mean I realized that academic probation and suspension is a per semester thing. At this same time I realized that the letter I got when I came back off co-op wasn’t a mistake. I figured they just got confused for some reason because I had been gone for 4 semesters or something. In fact though, my last semester before co-op (2 classes: French II (D) and Networks (B); overall qpa (4*1+3*3)/7 ~= 1.857 < 2) put me on probation.

j: christmas party

I’d say the strongest impression that I had personally from the Christmas party was feeling slightly tense and uncomfortable the whole time. I liked being with everyone, but I didn’t enjoy how I felt alot of the time. It reminded me alot of when I got to Tech. Like I didn’t fit in and like everyone else was playing by some set of rules that I didn’t know about and eventually they would find out.

It never dawned on me that I could have gone to someone for support. Still don’t think about that too much. I’m much more open with myself now though. I think if I were in something I could turn to *someone* to hold me and be there for me.

I realized that while i was meditating tonight. I never go to others to talk things out or just to ask for support when i get down in something. Now that i think about it i never even really get down in anythign. Maybe that is why. Maybe i’m scared to do it on my own and scared cause i’m not willing to ask for help.

for: from S in reply to my letter

I forwarded a letter from me to S a little bit ago. This is her reply. This stuff is something I want to talk about tomorrow. The whole thing is not clear to me. I know I don’t want to get back together, but everything seems like rationalization.

re: to S on our relationship

S and I have been talking some. I want to break up and she doesn’t. She says I am copping out to avoid dealing with my issues. I agree that I am avoiding dealing with my arrogance some, but I don’t see not wanting for us to get back together as a part of that.
