{} Posed

San Diego has lots of attractions for anyone holding a digital camera. The sea gulls are very familiar with tourists and they naturally pose for the camera. I like his metal feet more than the black and red beak.

Handsome Arteen cheers for grandma.

{} Arteen in Del Mar

Lovely Arteen is waiting to get dressed for a day out in Del Mar.

It was a hot winter day in San Diego. The evening winds should be taken into account for the little angel. Add holiday spirit and this is how Arteen was dressed. A lovely outfit for a lovely angel.

{} Mr. Big Foot

He has two big feet, each of which have five toes. This may seem normal, but I think that's very strange for the little Prince of Persia.

He also smells very nice.

{favorite.quotes} Research

When you take stuff from one writer it's plagiarism; but when you
take it from many writers, it's research.
-Wilson Mizner

It's 112 pages of taking stuff from others expressed in a uniform formalism. Would the examiners think the same? Would they be happy as they read my thesis? Would they give me a hard time? It's only a week from now. Let's wait and see.

{} Matrix XP

Would I really need Operating Systems as a breadth requriement to do a degree in Robotics and Vision? Probably so according to them. What I wonder is if they would teach us Matrix XP in that course. You don't know what it is? Check it out now (needs broadband Internet).
