Quote of the Day–King Fergus(7/8/2012)

Princess or not. Learning to fight is essential!


King Fergus – Brave

[The wife and I went to see Brave last night.  Fergus and I would get along quite well.  I was glad to see Disney break the traditional mold for their princesses.  The line above combined with the following absolutely made me fall in love with this movie:

But I thought princesses shouldn’t have weapons? – Princess Mérida

Which in context was down right awesome and hilarious!  But you’ll have to go see it.  It’s definitely worth it, you’re either laughing, going “look at them, they’re so cute”, or going where did that damn dust come from.

Seriously I don’t know what some of these critics are smoking.  My suspicion is they prefer pop culture for their girls instead of geek culture… and if you don’t know what I’m talking about, let me educate you in graphical form.

pop-vs-geek1

Yeah, that about sums it up. –B]

Barron is the owner, editor, and principal author at The Minuteman, a competitive shooter, and staff member for Boomershoot. Even in his free time he’s merging his love and knowledge of computers and technology with his love of firearms.

He has a BS in electrical engineering from Washington State University. Immediately after college he went into work on embedded software and hardware for use in critical infrastructure. This included cryptographic communications equipment as well as command and control devices that were using that communications equipment. Since then he’s worked on just about everything ranging from toys, phones, other critical infrastructure, and even desktop applications. Doing everything from hardware system design, to software architecture, to actually writing software that makes your athletic band do its thing.

Buwahahaha!!! Awesome!

I just discovered this in Jetpack while waiting for my code to compile.

e^{\j \theta}=\cos{\theta}+\j \sin{\theta}

But wait, there’s more!

[\vec{\nabla} \cdot \vec{\mathbf{E}} = \frac{1}{\epsilon_0}\,\rho ]

Man, that is freaking awesome.  I can write formulas on the fly now and not have to resort to weird things to get the images to post.  Now I just need to get back to doing those posts on the power system.

Busy Day, pardon the light posting

In a long business meeting today and tomorrow.  Currently I feel the urge to gouge my eyes out with a spoon.

Fun thing is to see the main players involved in the discussion, count all the extra engineers in the room, figure in hourly engineering wages, this is one expensive meeting.

So enjoy this picture and read some of the folks in the blog roll on the right.

I had been meaning to post this before.  That shirt is just awesome!
