MATLAB, LabVIEW, Java, Arduino, LaTeX, Python, Mathematica....so many programming languages to learn. That and I still want to learn basic Mandarin, Cantonese, and Japanese eventually. >.>
Ooh, sounds like fun!
So do you know anyone who has taken Japanese at UW yet?

Collegeboard.org is useful for searching for different colleges at a glance.
Come to UW! tongue.gif

John Hopkins was also in my list but it's too far away from home.
Yeah, another reason I didn't apply to any big schools out of state. Too far away. UW is also one of the top colleges in computer science in the nation as well.
Where are you from if you don't mind me asking?
 

Yeah I have a few friends who took Japanese. My brother is taking 2nd year too.

I took intensive 1st year Mandarin (1st year content over 1 summer quarter).

 

And yes, Collegeboard is a good place to start. Google is good too of course.

 

I'm from Seattle, now living in Bellevue (area is safer).

Finally got the camera from my mom. Its dark already though so there's no lighting :l. Too lazy to take/edit more so here's just one for now I'll try to take more tomorrow.

Have you tried switching between the pleather and the velours? You will be surprised by the difference. And oh yeah, does the silver cable annoy you?

So is the Japanese curriculum good?
How intense is the intense class?
Haha, is Seattle that dangerous?
I'm guessing you saw where I was from?

I have the velours on right now actually. I don't have an amp though so I'm holding off on making and judgements on anything SQ related. Oh god the stock cable. It's awful. It looks nice but I don't even understand how it tangles the way it does sometime. Its like a stupid snake from hell or something that got tied in a knot around itself. I don't know about sound quality of the cable either, as I've never tried anything else.

Got my speaker amp in today... forgot I ordered it... tongue.gif 50 W/C, but came with no case or power supply (Have to use a laptop one), so I made a case using the box it came with! biggrin.gif

The Canare cables from early production HE-500s were a thousand miles better than the new silver ones. I also read that it sounds better to but I haven't tried it so I can't comment. But what I can tell you is that switching cables to copper does change the sound but it's only subtle. I tried 2 different ALO cables at Jaben and I noticed a slight difference in sound. The ALO cables made the sound "thicker", if that means anything to you, especially in the low frequencies.

You know what, try to wear those outside wink.gif.
I have and it's not what you call easy to do.

Oh yeah BTW, you still need a powerful amp to power it. You need at least an amp that can deliver 1W to show its true colours. 2W for going to its maximum potential.
I tried a Bakoon amp and god did it make the HE-500 fly.

You crazy. I don't think I could bring myself to take these outside ever. I cover them with a plastic bag whenever they're not in use, and am going to (attempt) to create an acrylic dust cover. I think I may pick up a norse cable eventually, recabling is mostly for aesthetics and wire flexability for me. 

 

Meh, for now the o2 will do (613 mW @ 33 ohms?), what I haven't heard yet won't make me desire it :P. But I'll give it a run through my friends lyr/bifrost combo if he doesn't get an internship in chicago this summer and I see him. If not.. I'll see if I can go to a meet somewhere and give them a try on something more powerful than the o2. Though I'm still in the phase where I'm over protective and don't want anyone else touching them.. depends if I'm still as obsessive over them come summer during a meet. The gunmetal cups are just such a scratch magnet in my mind, I've started clipping and filing my nails like every 2-3 days or so since I've gotten them.
