I like to explore computer and physical security, ride bicycles, and kindly plead with computers to obey me.


       Hack placidly amidst the noisy printers and remember what prizes there
   may be in Science.  As fast as possible get a good terminal on a good system.
   Enter your data clearly but always encrypt your results.  And listen to others,
   even the dull and ignorant, for they may be your customers.  Avoid loud and
   aggressive persons, for they are sales reps.
       If you compare your outputs with those of others, you may be surprised,
   for always there will be greater and lesser numbers than you have crunched.
   Keep others interested in your career, and try not to fumble; it can be a real
   hassle and could change your fortunes in time.
       Exercise system control in your experiments, for the world is full of
   bugs.  But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive
   for linearity and everywhere papers are full of approximations.  Strive for
   proportionality.  Especially, do not faint when it occurs.  Neither be cyclical
   about results; for in the face of all data analysis it is sure to be noticed.
       Take with a grain of salt the anomalous data points.  Gracefully pass
   them on to the youth at the next desk.  Nurture some mutual funds to shield
   you in times of sudden layoffs.  But do not distress yourself with imaginings
   -- the real bugs are enough to screw you badly.  Murphy's Law runs the
   Universe -- and whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt <Curl>B*n dS = 0.
       Therefore, grab for a piece of the pie, with whatever proposals you
   can conceive of to try.  With all the crashed disks, skewed data, and broken
   line printers, you can still have a beautiful secretary.  Be linear.  Strive
   to stay employed.

Random crap

"If an average person on the subway turns to you, like an ancient mariner, and starts telling you her tale, you turn away or nod and hope she stops, not just because you fear she might be crazy. If she tells her tale on camera, you might listen. Watching strangers on television , even responding to them from a studio audience, we're disengaged - voyeurs collaborating with exhibitionists in rituals of sham community."
